Preliminary results show over $15 million raised for more than 1,200 nonprofits, a 20% increase over Colorado Gives Day 2011, which raised $12.4 million.
Powered by CiviCore’s giving platform, at the peak 1,400 visitors were actively donating on the site with over 100 donations being processed per minute. Over 68,000 donations were processed during the 24 hour period.
“We were honored to be the technology sponsor for Colorado Gives Day again this year. The CiviCore team worked closely with Community First Foundation to get the system ready. It was thrilling to see the overwhelming generosity of our community as unprecedented numbers of donations were being processed,” said CiviCore Co-Founder Charles “Chic” Naumer.
CiviCore’s partnership includes the design, development, and management of the platform used to power Colorado Gives Day. The same platform is used to manage and process ongoing donations throughout the year at GivingFirst.org.
The CiviCore team worked around the clock on December 4 to support the record number of donations.
Colorado continues to lead the nation in statewide giving days focused exclusively on the nonprofit sector. The generosity of all who donated in support of the organizations that add tremendous value to our communities will be sure to continue to grow in 2013 and beyond.
