Blue Margin Gives Back

If You Knew You Could Actually Make a Difference ...

What would you do?

It started in 2016

When brothers Jon and Brick Thompson started talking about the legacy of their business.

What was the end result?

Blue Margin Community Works was born. 

Through this corporate-sponsored, employee-run program, every Blue Margin team member can take advantage of Paid Volunteer Leave (PVL) each month. That allows our people to go into the community and make a difference—without having to worry about missing work or trying to squeeze volunteering into an already-packed schedule.

Every week, new volunteer opportunities from all over the city are highlighted for team members to choose from, with invitations to join in anything that interests them. 

Our team has cheerfully donated hundreds of hours to help local nonprofit organizations thrive—making a difference in our Fort Collins community.
