Colorado Gives Day 2016

Posted: 18-Nov-2016

With the end of the year approaching, so too is Colorado Gives Day. If you are unfamiliar with Colorado Gives Day, it is a yearly event – this year taking place of December 6 – that encourages people across the state to donate a monetary gift to various non-profit organizations.

Colorado Gives Day, teaming with Community First Foundation and FirstBank, make it extremely easy to make a contribution. All you have to do is visit and enter your information. You can even schedule a donation today to be made when the day arrives.

Community First Foundation and FirstBank also each contributed $500,000 to create a $1 Million Incentive Fund again this year—one of the largest in the country, which increases the value of every donation proportionally. Here’s how it works: If a nonprofit organization receives 10 percent of the total amount of money raised on Colorado Gives Day, that same nonprofit receives 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund.

At the completion of Colorado Gives Day, the foundation will determine each non-prof- it’s proportionate share of the incentive fund by dividing the total amount each charity raised by the total amount of donation to all participating nonprofits. This amount will then be multiplied by the total amount of dollars in the Incentive Fund.

Colorado Gives Day is a great opportunity for you to give an end-of-year gift that will inevitably impact the lives of so many Coloradans. We hope you will think of The Denver Police Museum on December 6!
