Waldo Canyon Fire Assistance Fund
On June 23rd, 2012, the Waldo Canyon Fire ignited, killing two people, burning 346 homes and forcing the evacuation of over 32,000 local residents in its wake.
Within days, Pikes Peak United Way was gifted with $125,000 in seed money from the El Pomar Foundation to establish and administer the Waldo Canyon Fire Assistance Fund. It’s goal: to assist local nonprofits in meeting the immediate- and intermediate- needs of individuals and families in El Paso and Teller counties directly impacted by the fire.
In an effort to be transparent in our fiscal oversight, below are links to the 6-month Interim Report and the Final Report outlining to whom funds were allocated and how they were utilized.
