One of the purposes of the Greeley Stampede is to strengthen the community. The event makes a positive impact on the community by donating to organizations who volunteer during the annual festival. In 2021, the Stampede donated more than $72,000 to organizations who helped with various duties including setup, parking, security and cleanup.
The Greeley Stampede is seeking support from the community to help produce the historic 100th Greeley Stampede this summer including gate monitors, guest services, admission scanner and more. All areas include a donation to the organization.
