ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — As COVID-19 cases have spiked in Colorado in recent weeks, the Colorado COVID-19 Relief Fund is entering its seventh round of funding with hopes of continuing to raise money to support Colorado residents in need.
And with Colorado Gives Day on Tuesday, there's no better time for Coloradans to help their neighbors.
The fund, which was established in March in the wake of the initial outbreak of COVID-19 in the region, was supported by the Broncos early on with a $500,000 donation.
Since its inception, the fund has raised more than $19 million in grants to more than 800 organizations that help communities across the state. The website for the fund reports that as of Dec. 4, nearly $23 million has been raised so far.
The fund’s website promotes numerous ways that people can be of help, too, including volunteering opportunities to deliver medication or other supplies, helping local restaurants, donating blood and many more options.
