When you explore Colorado, you get breathtaking views, first-class outdoor recreation, and abundant wildlife viewing opportunities. Give back on Colorado Gives Day by helping VOC raise $55,000 so we can give our parks and trails the care they need - and give you the Colorado you love.
Nearly 70% of Coloradans recreate outside, and it's up to all of us to keep these places pristine.
All of those feet impact the land, and Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC) has been working for nearly 35 years to restore trails, disperse visitors, and get everyone involved in caring for the outdoors.
And as Colorado grows and the challenges facing our state change, VOC is leading the charge to expand the state's ability to maintain our outdoor spaces and make stewardship part of Colorado culture.
88 cents of every dollar goes directly to our hands-on stewardship programs.
Your contribution puts nearly 5,000 volunteers to work on nearly 100 volunteer projects each year. It builds the next generation of outdoor caretakers through our immersive middle school program, high school Cairn Youth Program, and family-friendly volunteer opportunities. And it promotes a statewide ethic of stewardship by supporting initiatives like the Colorado Outdoor Stewardship Coalition (COSC) and our Stepping Up Stewardship Toolkit.
