The ERO Charitable Foundation was started in 2010 to provide grants for humanitarian and environmental projects and to promote volunteerism to participate in those projects. Specifically, the ERO Charitable Foundation:
- Assists other nonprofit organizations that restore or conserve habitats in Colorado; developing countries within North, Central, and South America; Africa; and Asia; or in areas that have been affected by natural disasters or other crises.
- Assists other nonprofit organizations that provide humanitarian services to needy communities in Colorado; developing countries within North, Central, and South America; Africa; and Asia; and to populations displaced by natural disasters and other crises.
- Provides grants to support needy communities or populations displaced by natural disasters or other crises by making donations to other nonprofit organizations that are providing the needed services.
