Got friends and family who want to do something good for their community? Then you’ve got a crowd for supporting Energy Outreach Colorado! Crowdfunding is a simple, effective way to generate funds for a specific goal using the power of your imagination and your network of family and friends. Energy Outreach Colorado partners with Crowdrise, making it easy for you to create an online fundraiser to bring warmth and safety to Coloradans in need.
Crowdfunding can make celebrating a birthday, wedding, graduation or other special occasion more fun and more meaningful. Just set up a campaign on Crowdrise, and ask friends and family to donate to EOC rather than purchase gifts. The sky’s the limit when it comes to creating your campaign! Please visit our page on Crowdrise to start a campaign or see current campaigns by fellow EOC supporters.
