UpRoot Colorado (UpRoot) is a nonprofit organization measurably reducing surplus protective foods in Colorado, supporting the resilience of farmers and increasing the nutritional security of our state’s residents.

After spending three years under fiscal sponsorship to prove concept, we submitted our application to the federal government in the summer of 2019 to obtain nonprofit status. In February of 2020, we received our Letter of Determination and are now a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.

To date, we have gleaned ~795,000 servings of surplus produce and redistributed this nutrient-dense resource into local hunger-relief organizations.

We are in need of a volunteer who could donate time to write 1-2 grant proposals per business quarter. We currently have a subscription to both Fluxx and GrantStation which will help support our process. UpRoot's co-directors will also provide organizational history, relevant background information and strategic-planning goals, plus editing assistance.

Thank you for your consideration!
