United Way of Larimer County to Accept and Distribute All Donations

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 https://impact.uwaylc.org/EntFireRecoveryMatch 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.

“We are so grateful for Ent Credit Union’s partnership in addressing long-term fire recovery needs
in our community,” said Deirdre Sullivan, CEO and President at UWLC. “When local businesses
step up in this way to further inspire our generous community, we really can build a stronger
tomorrow, together as a Larimer United for fire recovery.”

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.
