Kids For ColoradoGives

Thursday, March 19, 2020

COVID-19 has students across the nation learning at home while social distancing is in place. Many parents are struggling to answer children’s questions about how they can help during the crisis, and many want to do something.

Community First Foundation has an easy way for kids to help while learning the value of philanthropy along the way. And, giving them a sense of empowerment as they choose the nonprofits they want to help.

It’s easy to do online at ColoradoGives.org. Parents, grandparents and others can purchase an eCard online, then children (or anyone!) can search for charities that matter to them and make a donation to them using the funds on the card. They can even select several charities at once to support.
It’s a great way to spread hope, love and generosity while inspiring a future generation of giving.
