Colorado Gives Day coming up! December 8, 2020.

THE COUNTDOWN BEGINS!

SLV GO! invites Coloradans to support increased access to the outdoors across the San Luis Valley by donating on Colorado Gives Day, December 8, 2020.

For the next seven weeks leading up to CO Gives Day, and in honor of the seventh anniversary of the original SLV GO! Coalition, we will be celebrating SLV GO! in sevens: seven Great Outdoors Action Team crew members, seven Trails Connect projects, and seven programs and partnerships which we are a part of.

Community First Foundation and FirstBank present Colorado Gives Day, an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy through online giving. The event is powered by ColoradoGives.org, a year-round, online giving platform. Donors can easily search for our profile on the site and make safe and secure donations.

Donations from CO Gives Day help deepen our capacity to provide outdoor recreation resources to all across the SLV! Keep an eye out throughout the next seven weeks for more information on CO Gives Day and features from our countdown!

Governor Polis today announced that the state will be allocating $6M to the Energize Gap Fund. This fund specifically targets assistance towards businesses and nonprofits that have been hardest hit by the statewide shutdown and that have limited access or no access altogether to other means of financing through federal, state, or local programs. With this important addition, the Gap Fund will now provide $31M in small business loans and grants to boost small business enterprises that are the economic engines throughout the state. Sole proprietors, small businesses (LLC, S/C Corporations) and nonprofit organizations with less than 25 full-time employees can apply for up to a possible combined total of $35,000 in financial assistance, with a $15,000 grant and a $20,000 low-interest loan.

In this week’s round of Regional Resource Calls, we’re digging into the biggest challenges facing small producers, restaurants, and regional supply chains. We’ll also hear from attorneys about eligibility requirements for PPP loans and navigating liabilities with commercial lease agreements. This week’s calls are not region-specific, so tune into the content that suits you best: https://bit.ly/2WtUWbJ
Hi guys, In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we established an emergency microloan fund to provide emergency funds to minority, women or veteran-owned small businesses throughout Colorado that have been economically impacted by the pandemic. Under the emergency microloan fund, we can offer loan amounts up to $25,000 for each applicant. Interest rates will be fixed at 2.00% following an initial six month, no interest period. Additionally, there are no fees charged whatsoever (application, origination, underwriting, exit, prepayment, etc.) and no collateral requirements. If you’re interested, please apply at our website at https://www.greenlineventures.com/.

Hello Jeff, I have information about an Unemployment Insurance class for employers. I would be happy to forward on to you the information on the class, I am hoping you could pull together enough interest to get a class together in the valley; versus having to go all the way to Denver for a 2 hour class.
