What are you grateful for?
Whether it's your favorite trail, healthy forests, or thriving wildlife, Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC) is dedicated to taking care of it.
Join us in celebrating the many things we have to be grateful for in Colorado during VOC's Season of Gratitude by scheduling your donation for Colorado Gives Day, December 10.
For 35 years, VOC has been caring for the places we love with thousands of volunteers each year.
From city parks to county open spaces, state parks, and Wilderness areas, VOC's work has a positive and lasting impact on public lands throughout the state.
You can join this important effort by scheduling your Colorado Gives Day donation today.
Your contribution will help put nearly 5,000 volunteers to work on nearly 100 volunteer projects next year. It will build the next generation of outdoor caretakers through our immersive middle school program, high school Cairn Youth Program, and family-friendly volunteer opportunities. And it will promote a statewide ethic of stewardship by supporting initiatives like Wilder and our Stepping Up Stewardship Toolkit and Outdoor Stewardship Institute (OSI).
