Colorado COVID Relief Fund
The Colorado COVID Relief Fund is hosted by the State of Colorado and Mile High United Way. The fund will be overseen by a committee of community leaders from across Colorado and will be providing aid to support Colorado communities and organizations affected by the recent outbreak of COVID-19. Funds will provide flexible resources to organizations in our state working with communities who are disproportionately impacted by the outbreak.
Colorado healthcare professionals don't have the equipment they need. We're making it. Donate to Make4Covid.com to support.
Donating blood makes a big difference in the lives of others. Check out the Red Cross website for donation locations near you.
