The 7th annual Colorado Gives Day is now over. CiviCore would like to congratulate the Community First Foundation, First Bank and all the participating nonprofits for another record breaking year! The numbers are in: More than 145,000 donations were made, totaling $33.8 million! This year saw the event’s greatest hour of giving on record. Between the hours of 9:00-10:00am more than 1.72 million dollars were raised! Donations ranged from $10 to $1.48 million. It took all contributions, big and small, to produce this historic day. Colorado Gives Day even made world news as the event’s success was advertised by PRNewswire in the middle of Times Square!
All money raised will be given to Colorado nonprofits. Over 2,100 nonprofits participated in the event this year. When the $1 Million Incentive Fund is included, more than $34.8 million will be distributed throughout the community. Some of the money raised yesterday was through KidsforColoradoGives.org, a new fundraising portal on the ColoradoGives.org website designed specifically for kids.
CiviCore is pleased to continue to partner with the Community First Foundation supporting Colorado Gives Day, with our Giving Platform. We look forward to our continued relationship and adapting our platform to their continuously growing needs.
