Five companies generate $750K for philanthropy through Pledge 1% Colorado

It’s been 13 years since Pledge 1% Colorado (originally EFCO) was started to make it simple for startups to give back to their communities. In those 13 years, our network has created more than $11M in philanthropic funds, something we’re beyond proud to officially shout from the hills. More than 300 companies up and down the front range have made generosity a core tenet of their culture, helping shape the way our communities respond to their most pressing needs.  
 
Today, we celebrate the tenacity of our Colorado startup community after a tumultuous year. We’re pleased to share that five of our member companies were acquired during 2020, totaling more than $750K in philanthropic capital created during a year where we witnessed outsized need across every town and city in our state. Many of these “seeds” were planted years ago, with these businesses setting aside 1% of their equity (shares of stock), and we couldn’t be prouder to watch these companies double down on being outstanding corporate citizens.
