Ent Credit Union Announces $50K Match for Larimer County Fire Recovery Fund


United Way of Larimer County to Accept and Distribute All Donations

Fort Collins, Colorado (November 10, 2020)– Ent Credit Union, Colorado’s largest credit union, announces a $50,000 donation match campaign for the local United Way’s Larimer County Fire Recovery Fund through the end of November. Though recent snowfall has greatly aided the efforts of firefighters in the area, multiple fires continue to present a danger to structures, residents and firefighters alike throughout the impacted areas. The Recovery Fund will allow United Way of Larimer County to respond to emergency needs and prepare for future potential flooding in the area, both now and in the months ahead.

“2020 has presented a unique set of challenges that has necessitated an unprecedented level of giving in our state,” said Chad Graves, CEO at Ent Credit Union. “Though Ent is relatively new in Northern Colorado, our commitment to the communities we serve is as strong as it has been for the past 63 years. Help us help fellow Coloradans and our beautiful state recover from two of the most devastating wildfires in Colorado’s history by giving, if you are able, through our matching donation program with the United Way of Larimer County. Any amount you give will make a difference and put us one step closer to maximizing Ent’s matching $50,000 pledge.”

To qualify for the matching donation through Ent Credit Union, the United Way of Larimer County encourages you to visit their website to make your donation online. Donations are also accepted via postal mail to United Way of Larimer County, Attn: Ent Match, 525 W Oak Street, Suite 101, Fort Collins, CO 80521.

United Way of Larimer County and the Larimer County Long Term Recovery Group will distribute funds where they are needed most: to agencies and groups helping people recover from disaster. The scope of the damage is uncertain at this time. Unfortunately, the effects of this tragedy will be long lasting, and financial assistance is needed to support displaced families as they rebuild their lives in the coming months and years.
