Since its inception in 2010, Colorado Gives Day has raised $145.3 million for Colorado nonprofits, making it among the most successful giving days in the nation. Last year alone, donors gave more than 146,600 individual donations to 2,140 nonprofits totaling $33.8 million, breaking all previous records.
“Colorado Gives Day highlights the best of Colorado,” said Marla J. Williams, president and CEO of Community First Foundation. “It celebrates the extraordinary generosity of Coloradans and the important contributions Colorado nonprofits make to our community every day.”
What makes this year so special? ColoradoGives.org, the year-round, online giving website that fuels Colorado Gives Day, is celebrating its 10th anniversary. For 10 years, ColoradoGives.org has connected the givers and the do-ers. Community First Foundation celebrated this milestone by launching a new and improved giving website in August 2017. The new ColoradoGives.org features more than 2,000 nonprofits and makes online giving easier and more fun!
Donors can search for local charities from any page on ColoradoGives.org to learn more and donate on Colorado Gives Day. Starting November 1, 2017, donors can also schedule Colorado Gives Day donations online to Prairie Family Center.
