In 2010 Community First Foundation launched the first Colorado Gives Day – raising more than $8 million dollars! It was a single day event that drew attention to the work Colorado’s nonprofits do to make Colorado a better place to live.
Eight years later and that one day has grown. Last year Colorado Gives Day raised almost $34 million dollars. And it is no longer a one-day event. Prior to Colorado Gives Day, rallies will be held across the state generating excitement for both nonprofits and donors. We encourage you to attend a rally and remind your donors that in Colorado, the way we participate in #GivingTuesday, is by scheduling our Colorado Gives Day donations.
Colorado Nonprofit Association is excited to be one of the thousands of nonprofits participating in the events. Like you, we look forward to receiving financial support from our donors during Colorado Gives Day.
Colorado Gives Day
Colorado Gives Day, presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, is powered by ColoradoGives.org, a year-round website featuring more than 2,000 nonprofits. ColoradoGives.org encourages charitable giving by providing comprehensive, objective and up-to-date information about Colorado nonprofits and an easy way to support them online.
Colorado Gives Day is just one example of what makes Colorado’s nonprofits the most effective, vibrant and innovate nonprofit community essential to the quality of life in our state.
