Monday, June 6, 2016 -- GOCO

All signs point to summer’s arrival – the trails are dry, your office is a ghost town by noon on Friday, school is out, and we (probably) won’t be getting any more snow. Summer’s return means our Instagram photo contest #SpotGOCO is back too!

Tuesday, May 31, 2016 -- GOCO

A whopping $9 million in GOCO projects finished in April, with a majority coming from our partners at Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW). GOCO invests $30 million every year in programs at CPW.

Faces of GOCO: Meet Matt Brady

Monday, April 25, 2016 -- GOCO

Matt Brady joined GOCO in March as our new executive coordinator. His job basically consists of keeping us all in line and organized, but his main focus is serving our fantastic board and making sure they have everything they need to serve GOCO and our grantees. After all, our board is volunteering their time to lead our organization, and we are so appreciative of that commitment of service. Matt has already made a big impact in the last month and we're thrilled to have him! We'll let Matt take it from here.
