Giving Back 1% to La Plata – Locals Helping Locals
Local businesses in La Plata County have spearheaded the La Plata Impact Fund as a way to give back to the community where they succeeded.
In order to inspire meaningful contributions to the community, local area businesses are committing to giving back 1% of their gross revenues to make a significant impact to the health and well being of the place we call home. In the first year of the Fund’s existence, a minimum of 25% of the 1% pledge will be pooled and leveraged in order to make movement-building and long-term investments to help alleviate our community’s most pressing concerns. The La Plata Impact Fund seeks to be a change agent, driving funds to where they can make the biggest difference.
2022 Goal: Our goal is to engage businesses and individuals representing $400,000,000, or $4,000,000 in total giving with $1,000,000 of that amount dedicated to the Impact Funds’ investment in social equity as a way to support a fair and just society for the underserved and underprivileged in our community.
Who Can Contribute? While the pledge to give 1% was formed by local businesses in the La Plata County area, individuals wanting to make a difference are also encouraged to contribute.
