Support the Longs Peak Council on Colorado Gives Day
Mark your Calendar!
For five years running Community First Foundation and FirstBank are working together along with nonprofits around the state to host Colorado Gives Day, lasting the whole day on December 9th, 2014! The goal is to promote giving to nonprofits in Colorado through online donations, to achieve this on December 9th all fees charged by third party vendors for online donations will be subsidized! Another great benefit to donating on this day is called the $1 Million Dollar Incentive Fund, which proportionally doubles the value of donations received by a nonprofit organization; the fund is created by Community First Foundation and FirstBank and at 1 million dollars is a 300% increase from past years!
The donations are made online at ColoradoGives.org, which features nearly 1500 Colorado nonprofits, along with up to date information and an easy way to support them! The website for donations is up year round, however the added bonuses of a fund and lack of fees is only available during Colorado Gives Day!
Mark your calendars now.
