We Increase Generosity

We help fuel positive change by uniting the power of many. We sparked the state’s largest community giving movement — Colorado Gives Day — and strive to help the community work together for the good of all.

We Support the Do-ers

We find innovative and collaborative ways to strengthen nonprofits. After all, they are the heart and soul of the change we seek. We work side-by-side to offer connections, tools, resources and education to help them focus on their mission.

We Inspire the Givers

We engage people to be a positive force for change. We want it to feel good to do good — so that one do-gooder will bring along another — and so on, and so on, and so on.
