ROFO: Fund a Need for the Roaring Fork Valley

It's December and everyone should get in the spirit of doing good.  We are incredibly proud to be part of the ROFO Fund.  It's a brilliant idea that allows people to vote on their favorite project that benefits the Roaring Fork Valley.  Well done Preston!

The Aspen Trail Finder Roaring Fork Fund, or simply ROFO Fund, is our charitable giving arm to help local land, river, trail, and outdoor education nonprofits in the Roaring Fork Valley. The ROFO Fund is a donor advised fund through the Aspen Community Foundation (ACF). All gifts to the ROFO Fund are tax deductible and all the money stays in the valley, assisting 501(c)(3) organizations around Aspen, Snowmass, Basalt, Carbondale, and Glenwood Springs.

Each year, Aspen Trail Finder will have an online poll with 3 projects we’d love to fund. Users vote for their favorite and we’ll fund the project that gets the most votes! Our goal is to get people involved in giving back to the Roaring Fork Valley, even if that’s as simple as clicking a button. Read more about our goal on our blog at Case for the ROFO Fund or watch this video – The ROFO Fund Explained in 1 Minute. You can also check out our ROFO Fund FAQ.
