Colorado Gives Day returns for its ninth year on Tuesday, December 4, 2018. This annual giving day celebrates and increases philanthropy in Colorado with the rallying cry, “Give Where You Live!” Colorado Gives Day is powered by ColoradoGives.org, a year-round giving website featuring more than 2,500 Colorado nonprofits.
Colorado Gives Day is the second largest giving day in the nation. The day of giving helps Coloradans safely and easily support their favorite nonprofits online and explore new ones. ColoradoGives.org is the only online giving site dedicated exclusively to charitable giving in Colorado. Community First Foundation makes fundraising easy for nonprofits and inspire philanthropy among a significant community of givers.
Community First Foundation launched Colorado Gives Day in 2010 with just 539 participating nonprofits and a goal to raise one million dollars. Coloradoans gave more than eight million dollars, far surpassing the goal and proving that Coloradans value their nonprofits. From 2010 – 2017, $182 million has been raised for the state’s nonprofit community.
Each year Community First Foundation strive for growth, particularly in number of donations, number of donors, and number of counties participating. Each year CFF also expands partnerships with other foundations and entities throughout the state who can bring ColoradoGives and Colorado Gives Day to their communities.
