COGA donations top $2 million

The Colorado Oil & Gas Association (COGA) has raised more than $2.1 million for the American Red Cross. In addition to the $1.1 million it raised for the Colorado Floods, COGA has also given an additional $1 million to Red Cross Disaster Relief to be used nationwide.

After the 2013 Colorado flood, Boulder-based COGA President and CEO Tisha Conoly Schuller challenged COGA members to donate to the Red Cross. So far, 39 companies have contributed to the total donation amount.

“Thousands of Coloradans have been hurt by the historic floods in Colorado, and other Americans have suffered due to disasters across our nation,” Schuller said in a statement. “We know there is a tremendous amount of work to do with much more left and I am proud to be a part of an industry that generously contributes in support of these efforts.”

Although flood relief donations are beginning to slow, COGA still plans to continue fundraising efforts for Red Cross programs.

“We’ve had a strong history with the Red Cross,´ said Doug Flanders, COGA director of policy and external affairs. “We will continue to be actively engaged in any fundraising for relief efforts.”
