Why we serve

Committed to improving our communities.


Our commitment to service goes beyond our member-owners. We regularly support nonprofits with a statewide reach, as well as those located within the communities we serve.

In addition to time and talent, we also donate funds to organizations, agencies and activities that reflect our and our members’ values. Primarily, we focus on contributing to nonprofits that support:

  • Child and family health and well-being
  • Higher education - primarily via Colorado-based university and community college scholarships
If your organization serves these needs, please review our Contribution Guidelines.


Nonprofits meeting our guidelines are invited to:

Serving more than our members.

In 2019, our more than $2M donation to area nonprofits helped improve the lives of our neighbors. Our employees are just as big-hearted. Every year, they hold annual fundraising campaigns and actively volunteer within the community.

We say YES for kids.

We see young people as crucial to the present and future success of their communities. And it’s why after 20 years, we’re still approving Ent Youth Endowment Series (YES) grants to not-for-profit agencies that benefit youth. Early in the year, we invite applications from nonprofits that serve young Coloradans statewide, or in the Denver, Pikes Peak or Pueblo areas.
