Colorado Gives Day was a huge success! Thanks to the generosity of many, we raised, $4,510! We are truly inspired and grateful for this investment in and commitment to our community. These funds will be put to work supporting our 2015 Affordable Housing Transportation Toolkit program by supporting the Neighborhood Eco (NECO) Pass component of the program.
To exemplify what a tremendous impact our Affordable Housing Transportation Toolkit can have, check out this email we received from a Westview resident!
“This is a beautiful gift! Thank you so much for making it possible. Last month my car broke down and I was able to get to work and my children were able to catch the bus to school and this gift made it possible and simple to adjust.“-Westview resident & NECO pass recipient.
The matching funds raised yesterday were enough to get 2015 NECO passes for:
- 121 Broadway East-West residents
- 30 Westview residents
That is 151 low-income residents who will be able to ride RTD all year long!
We are still working to raise the matching funds needed to renew the 2015 NECO Pass contracts for:
- 82 Red Oak Park residents
- 156 Mariposa residents
- 25 Globeville residents
If you know of an individual or business that might be interested in helping with this on-going fundraising effort please let us know, [email protected], or share this post with them. Donations can still be made throughout the year via the Colorado Gives website, but the sooner we can renew the NECO pass contracts for these neighborhoods so that residents do not have a lapse in coverage.
