About Us


We are Coloradoans helping Coloradoans. 

The COVID-19 crisis has threatened hundreds of thousands of small businesses in Colorado, where more than half of all jobs are attributable to small businesses. Even as businesses embark upon the process of reopening, they face new regulations and uncertainties, a diminished economy, and a lack of financial cushion, as surplus resources have been stretched thin for many. 

The nonprofit, charitable organization, the Colorado 30 Day Fund was launched by Coloradoans, Laura and Elliott Fey, after seeing other business owners and friends across the state struggle to sustain their small businesses and jobs as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. Recognizing that most relief programs benefit larger businesses, and having helped dozens of startups through mentorship, advising, and investments, the Feys were compelled to work with other business leaders throughout the state to create the Colorado 30 Day Fund. The Fund’s goal is to help preserve as many Colorado jobs as possible as our most vulnerable small businesses face substantial shortfalls and an uncertain economic future. 

Colorado businesses that qualify for assistance from the Fund are:

Small businesses that employ three to 30 people;

Based in Colorado and have been operating for at least one year;

Owned and operated by a Colorado resident.

The funds disbursed to small businesses by the Colorado 30 Day fund do not need to be repaid. If businesses who receive the Fund’s assistance do, at a later date, wish to “pay it forward” to another Colorado small business in need of assistance, they may do so by directing those dollars back to the Fund, which will disburse the funding to another business in need.
