Join the 6th Annual Colorado Gives Day
- November 23, 2015
The 6th annual Colorado Gives Day is almost here, bringing with it the opportunity to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado. Scheduled for December 8, 2015, the Colorado Gives Day is a 24-hour event. In 2014 the Colorado Gives Day raised $26.2 million, contributing to the $83 million fundraised since the event’s conception in 2010 ($8.7 million in 2010, $12.8 million in 2011, $15.7 million in 2012 and $20.9 million in 2013).
Hosted by Community First Foundation, the Colorado Gives Day is one of the largest gives days in the country and supports over 1,800 Colorado nonprofit organizations. The Colorado Gives Day supports a wide variety of nonprofits statewide, allowing donors to seek out nonprofits by cause or by neighborhood.
For the 2015 gives day, the Community First Foundation and FirstBank have each contributed $500,000 to create a $1 Million Incentive Fund. Every participating nonprofit will have the opportunity to win a portion of the incentive fund. Learn more about the $1 Million Incentive Fund and how you can participate here.
You don’t have to wait until December 8 to start giving! Donors can now visit https://www.coloradogives.org/ to schedule their giving day donations. The Colorado Gives Day is also hosting a nonprofit rally at the capitol on December 7 to kick off their event. The rally will occur at 11:00 AM, on the Capitol’s west steps.
