Colorado Homeownership Coalition
Double the Donation
The 2021 Double the Donation Campaign kicks off THIS FRIDAY!
About CHC: The Colorado Homeownership Coalition (CHC) provides mortgage assistance to homeowners experiencing a temporary disruption in income. Our mission is to inspire hope in sustaining homeownership when tragedy strikes.

Our Impact: To date — 100% of all CHC grant recipients avoided foreclosure and experienced success after receiving housing counseling and financial assistance from the CHC.

Why Donate: 'Home' and those who fill it are the drivers of success across our industry, but despite the housing market boom, millions of Coloradans are experiencing home-threatening financial hardships.
The Fundraiser: Double the Donation is a CHC lead initiative with a goal of doubling our total donations received in 2021, ultimately, expanding our impact to more Coloradans who need our support.

100% of your generosity is given to support Colorado homeowners who need our help to overcome hardships sustain homeownership. All donations are tax-deductible 

Will you join us? We’re making an impact — but we need your help to grow. Please consider supporting the CHC's Double the Donation Fundraiser — let’s leverage our industry as a collective force for good and reinvest into communities across Colorado that support our business.
