Project Details

What We Need
  • A detailed Operating Budget covering at least one full fiscal year
  • Expert advice on how to reconcile actual expenses with budgeted expenses
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have an operating budget, financial statements, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have Quickbooks online, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $9,114 , allowing us to pay the wages of another seasonal gleaning coordinator and harvest more surplus fruits and vegetables from farms and backyards for hunger relief!

Better understanding how to use our budget throughout the year, and compare it to incoming donations, will enable us to more effectively target our fundraising efforts, prioritize our programming based on funding projections, communicate relevant financial information with board members, and plan.

About The Org

UpRoot Colorado
Our Mission

We measurably reduce surplus protective foods in Colorado, support the economic stability of farmers, and increase the nutritional security of our state's residents.

What We Do


Increase nutritional security in Colorado by diverting locally grown, nutrient-dense surplus agriculture into the state's hunger-relief system.

Support Colorado's smallholder and family farms via a trained volunteer gleaning corps, outreach through educational content and social media, quantitative and qualitative research, legislative-advocacy work and via collaboratively structured pilot projects addressing agricultural issues such as on-farm labor shortages in Colorado.

Reinstall food wisdom in our Colorado communities by reconnecting Coloradans with where much of their food originates.
