Colorado Gives Day is a statewide movement to increase online giving. Community First Foundation is pleased to power this day, presented by FirstBank, on Tuesday, December 8, 2020.
Donations are accepted year-round at ColoradoGives.org, which features more than 2,600 nonprofits. Colorado Gives Day is one the most successful events of its kind in the nation. Since the site’s inception in 2007, more than $357 million has been raised on ColoradoGives.org to support Colorado nonprofits.
Colorado Gives Day features a $1 Million Incentive Fund, created by Community First Foundation and FirstBank. It is one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country.
Every donation made through ColoradoGives.org on Colorado Gives Day is boosted by the fund, which increases the value of every dollar. For example, if a nonprofit organization receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, that same nonprofit receives 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund.
*Note: The Incentive Fund is not a dollar-for-dollar match. Please do not use the word “match” when promoting the day. See below for key points.

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that’s unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Whether you’re giving your voice, your time, goods, or your money, helping others or working for the causes you care about, generosity is one of the most powerful ways you can have an impact in the world.
For our organization, Colorado Gives Day is a chance to show Colorado’s nonprofits how much we value and appreciate the work they do in our communities every day. We use Colorado Gives Day to introduce our employees and others to philanthropy and the power of giving locally.
