ColoradoGives.org, sponsored by the Community First Foundation, makes it simple to donate to your favorite nonprofits at any time through a secure online transaction. Community First began Colorado Gives Day four years ago to encourage people to give to their favorite causes on one day in December. The first year, 8.7 million in donations were received. On Dec. 10, 2013, 88,000 people donated a record-breaking $20.9 million to 1,442 nonprofits in Colorado.
We appreciate your support, as it shows how much you care about the work our organizations are doing in the mountain community.
Thank you.
