GOCO has relied on input from Coloradans across the state to decide how lottery funds should be invested in the great outdoors. GOCO holds regular statewide stakeholder meetings to help us ensure that our investments continue to meet the needs of all Coloradans.

The current strategic plan was formulated after extensive outreach. It identifies funding priorities and initiatives for our Board, and has guided our grant-making and investments since it was adopted in 2010. Now it is time to develop a new strategic plan to guide our work for the next five to 10 years.


GOCO will host 14 public forums around the state in August. You are invited to be part of the process to help set GOCO's priorities for the next five years.
Join the discussion. There will be food and door prizes. Spanish translation will be available. If you miss the event in your community, you can still participate online here.
