Celebrating philanthropy in Colorado

Posted by Joanne Kelley, Executive Director, Colorado Association of Funders

We created this blog so we would have a way of regularly sharing stories and news about philanthropy in Colorado.

Once a year, almost 1,000 people come together to do the same. National Philanthropy Day has become an annual tradition in Colorado. It’s a chance to reflect on the important work of philanthropists, grantmakers, fundraisers and volunteers. Celebrating their good work helps to raise awareness about what can be accomplished when we reach out to help others.

The deadline for nominating worthy candidates for 11 different awards is July 22 — less than two months away. You can visit www.npdcolorado.org to learn more and to download nomination forms.

We hope to see you at the awards ceremony on Nov. 18th.
