The Colorado Riverfront system is one of the crown jewels of our community, and one of its greatest assets. We all benefit from having a clean, safe and well-maintained Riverfront that provides a rich habitat for wildlife and vegetation, and a unique recreational trail system for residents and visitors. The Colorado Riverfront Commission and its nonprofit arm, the Colorado Riverfront Foundation, collectively referred to as One Riverfront, are dedicated to maintaining, revitalizing, and providing public access to the Colorado and Gunnison Rivers through the Riverfront Trail System, while preserving the rivers’ groves, wetlands, marshes, gravel bars and islands. Round up for the Riverfront is a voluntary collection program designed to give your customers the opportunity to invest in the ongoing development and maintenance of the Riverfront System.
Investing in the Riverfront is easy, and everybody wins: your business, your customers, and the community at large. Your involvement costs you nothing and this is strictly an opt-in program; you simply ask your customers at the point of sale if they would like to make a nominal contribution. To make it easy for both you and your customers, we provide several options from which to choose, including:
Other options for your participation include:
One Riverfront staff will help you implement the option that best fits your point-of-sale and accounting systems and a collection schedule that is most convenient for you. We will also provide staff training and POS materials to help promote the program and offer ongoing support through regular communications. A Relationship Manager will be assigned to your business to help put the program in place and troubleshoot as needed. Your business will be responsible for reporting your calculation for your donation amount and One Riverfront staff will issue a receipt upon collection of each contribution.
80% of revenue from the program will go toward capital trail/riverfront improvement projects, the remaining 20% is allocated to administration costs. Every dollar contributed stays here at home to help build a better community.
We will help drive customers to your business. Based on surveys conducted by researchers from Colorado Mesa University, local consumers were shown to have considerable support for the program:
