With funds from Rocky Card sales this spring, Rocky Card owners Debra Dullaghan and Anne Smith reached out to help all the nonprofits in the Estes Park area with a donation of $1,000 to the Estes Park Nonprofit Resource Center.

EPNRC provides support for area nonprofits in the form of a resource for training, funding opportunities, volunteers, networking, and more. EPNRC served more than 1,000 individuals in 2014, and the donation from the Rocky Card will help to provide program and administrative support.

“Our goal is to strengthen our area’s nonprofits so they can better serve the community,” said EPNRC director Jill Lancaster. “This donation from the Rocky Card will help us to our job that much better.”

The Rocky Card has given more than $50,000 to nonprofit organizations since 2008, with the goal of each donation being to make a difference within the community that supports their efforts.

The premise behind the Rocky Card is that local businesses who are Rocky Card members attract customers by offering discounts or other incentives to cardholders. Visitors and Estes Park locals purchase a Rocky Card for $10 to access the discounts, and Dullaghan and Smith donate the profits from the sale of the cards to local charities.

Merchants who participate in the Rocky Card program agree that the Rocky Card has improved sales, gained customer awareness, and provided local charities with much-needed funds. With the Rocky Card, everybody wins!

Rocky Cards may be purchased from many merchants around Estes Park, including The Village Store at National Park Village, Estes Park Mountain Shop, Estes Park True Value & Radio Shack, Rocky Mountain Gateway, the Estes Park Visitors Center, and Safeway. A complete list of locations, as well as a list of the merchants that offer Rocky Card discounts, is available at www.RockyCard.com.

The success of the Rocky Card could not be possible without the support of its promotional partners, which include Estes Park News, EPTV Channel 8, Reel Mountain Theater, and Hobert Office Services.
