The Foundation provides grants for environmental and humanitarian projects in Colorado, parts of the U.S affected by natural disasters and in developing countries. The Foundation encourages volunteerism to connect people, places and projects.


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.

If you are interested in receiving a grant, you must identify your project or organization (501 (c) (3) or equivalent) and submit an application via this form: ERO Foundation Grant Application  to the Foundation Board. If you have questions, please click the "Contact/Submit Form" button below.
