Celebrate Colorado Gives Day by Donating to the CAR Foundation
Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. Although Colorado Gives Day is celebrated on Dec. 10, 2019, you can schedule donations ahead of time beginning Nov. 1. Go to CAR’s Colorado Gives Day page to donate.
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. Every donation made is boosted by the incentive fund, increasing the value of every dollar! That’s why it’s important for you to donate to the CAR Foundation on Colorado Gives Day.
Over the span of 25 years, The CAR Foundation has invested $7.8 million to support Colorado nonprofits that encourage safe and affordable housing, promote homeownership, and provide disaster relief to Coloradans.
As a thank you for your support, every donation on Colorado Gives Day that is over $100 will receive the CAR Foundation’s new heart-shaped pin.
