What Is Colorado Gives Day?
Colorado Gives Day is a local effort where thousands of Coloradans partner with nonprofits across our state. To sweeten the deal, there’s a $1.6 Million Incentive Fund to boost the value of every single donation.
Here’s How It Works:
- If a nonprofit organization receives 10 percent of the total amount of money raised on Colorado Gives Day, that same nonprofit receives 10 percent of the $1.6 Million Incentive Fund.
- At the completion of Colorado Gives Day, the Community First Foundation will determine each nonprofit’s proportionate share of the incentive fund by dividing the total amount each nonprofit raised by the total amount of money donated to all participating nonprofits. This amount is then multiplied by the total amount of dollars in the Incentive Fund.
So more donations for the Mission on Colorado Gives Day means more of the $1.6 Million Incentive Fund the Mission will receive.
