Pledge 1% Colorado, formerly known as Entrepreneurs Foundation of Colorado (EFCO), was created around the idea that any business, from startups to enterprise companies, can be a force for good in their communities. Since our first pledge in 2008, more than $7M and thousands of hours of volunteer support have been allocated to impactful non-profits around Colorado using one of our 5 pledge types. CSR isn’t anything new, we’re just here to make it easier, better and faster.
