Who created it?
Community First Foundation created this statewide day of giving in 2010 with the financial support of Colorado-based FirstBank.
What is ColoradoGives.org?
It is a year-round, online giving website featuring more than 2,000 Colorado nonprofit organizations. Made possible by Community First Foundation. 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.
"What is the $1M Incentive Fund?"
Thanks to Community First Foundation and FirstBank, the amount we raise on December 8th qualifies us to receive a portion of one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country! Community First Foundation and FirstBank each contributed $500,000 to create a $1 Million Incentive Fund again this year, one of the largest in the country! It increases the value of every donation proportionally. At the completion of Colorado Gives Day, the Foundation will determine each nonprofit's proportionate share of the incentive fund by dividing the total amount each charity raised by the total amount of donations to all participating nonprofits. This percentage will then be multiplied by the total amount of dollars in the Incentive Fund. Learn more here.
