What is ColoradoGives?

And what is Colorado Gives Day?

ColoradoGives.org is a year-round online giving resource featuring more than 1,000 Colorado charities. Made possible by the Community First Foundation of Denver, ColoradoGives.org offers donors an easy way to search for nonprofits and donate online.

Colorado Gives Day is an annual December initiative to inspire and unite Coloradoans to “give where they live.”

Thanks to the support of generous donors on Colorado Gives Day 2016, over $1.4 million was raised for organizations in Larimer County as part of the record-breaking $33.8 million statewide total.
