From Mayfly Outdoors:
Mayfly Outdoors has been named an honoree of 2021 Civic 50 Colorado by CSR Solutions of Colorado and Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service and community impact.
The award recognizes Mayfly as one of the most community-minded companies in Colorado, determined by an independently administered and scored survey. It’s the third year in a row the company is recognized, and one of only two organizations on the Western Slope of Colorado along with Vail Resorts.
The Civic 50 Colorado initiative, modeled after Points of Light’s national program, provides a standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, talents, skills, and resources to drive social impact in their company and communities.
The report is the only evaluation that exclusively measures corporate involvement in communities. Mayfly is best known for its internationally recognized fly fishing brands Abel®, Ross Reels®, and Airflo®.
“Montrose is really important to us, and our goal is to make it a better place,” said David Dragoo, Mayfly’s founder. Mayfly is currently partnering with the Montrose community to restore and enhance nearly 1.5 miles of the Uncompahgre River. The endeavor includes the recently completed Connect Trail comprising nearly 2.25 miles of new walking trails for families and outdoor enthusiasts and preserving over 40 acres of land for open space enhancement and wildlife preservation.
Mayfly was previously recognized by both former Governor John Hickenlooper and current Governor Jared Polis for their positive impact in Montrose. “Our products are manufactured here, and we’re very proud of that,” added Dragoo. The company supports several engineering and manufacturing jobs, and recently expanded into a new, 41,000 square foot facility. The company now employees nearly 120 people worldwide.
Mayfly is also a Certified B® Corporation, a designation the company earned alongside businesses like Kleen Kanteen, Patagonia, and Ben & Jerry’s. Certified B® corporations pass more third-party analysis while committing to using business as a force for good.
The Civic 50 Colorado awards provide a standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcase how companies can use their time, skills, and resources to impact their communities. The Civic 50 Colorado honorees will be recognized during The Civic 50 Colorado Awards on November 9, 2021.
CSR Solutions, a leader in community engagement and philanthropy, is pleased to be the first in the country to bring the nationally revered Civic 50 Awards to Colorado. “Colorado companies, like Mayfly, have invested significant resources in communities to build a strong, resilient, connected, and healthy place for us all,” said CSR representatives. “The impact stories are aimed to inspire us all to support their efforts.”
