Host an Event

A third-party event is when a business, organization, community group, school, or individual hosts an event or fundraising campaign to benefit USO Colorado. It is planned and implemented independently of USO Colorado.

For more information please contact Linda Mays at or 303-324-2231.


We appreciate your interest and willingness to raise funds and awareness for USO Colorado, however there are a few guidelines we ask you to follow.

All events or fundraising campaigns must be approved by the USO in advance. In order to start the approval process, the Third-Party Events Application must be completed and submitted.

Permission to use the USO name or logo in advertising, promotion, or other materials, must be approved by the USO prior to production and distribution.

The USO assumes no liability for the event participants or consumers of the product.

“USO” or “USO Colorado” may not be included as the title of the event. The USO or USO Colorado may be mentioned as the beneficiary of an event or product sales in fundraising solicitations after the activity has been approved by the USO.

Within 60 days following the event or fundraising campaign, proceeds must be received. Proceeds may be mailed or delivered to the USO office if not using a digital fundraising platform Colorado Gives or Charity GoFundMe. The USO will never allow permission for funds to be generated using our name for personal gain. Failure to produce funds to the USO after using our name and/or logo could result in legal action. The USO may require additional information or applicant to obtain insurance dependent upon the event or fundraising campaign.

USO Colorado is happy to provide input on event planning and USO Colorado logo, and may be willing to assist in promotion of event or fundraising campaign or staff attendance at the event if applicable. This is determined on a case by case basis.

The USO will not be able to provide funding or reimbursements for expenses.
