FCHA Charity of the Month: 2020

Wednesday, April 1st, 2020

For many years, Fort Collins Heating & Air Conditioning has given back to the community. For years, we did the FCHA charity of the month. Here’s how it worked:

  • We are continually asking for feedback from our customers on which non-profits they support and why. Our marketing team keeps a list of all organizations that are submitted.
  • Each month, our management team nominates three local non-profit organizations from that list.
  • We then have our customers vote via our email campaigns on one of those three charities to be the recipient of the $1,000 and be that month’s FCHA Charity of the Month.

These are the charities we chose for the year of 2020.
