We are less than a week away from the 10th Anniversary of Colorado Gives Day (Dec. 10), and you can feel the generosity and giving spirit building in the brisk Colorado air. To commemorate this monumental day of giving, FirstBank and Community First Foundation are excited to announce a special contest for donors around the state. Beginning Wednesday, Dec. 4, you can enter to win one of three, $10,000 donation prizes.

WHAT YOU CAN WIN:

Three individuals that properly enter the contest (details below) will win the opportunity to donate $10,000 to a nonprofit, or divvy up among 10 nonprofits, of their choice. Winners will have a ColoradoGives.org account funded with $10,000, in which they will have until 11:59 p.m. MT on Dec. 10, 2019, to decide which nonprofits will receive donations. After that point, any money left over in the account will be allocated to the Colorado Gives Day Incentive Fund.

HOW THE CONTEST WORKS:

To enter the contest, all you have to do is follow a few simple steps via an Instagram account.

  1. Download FirstBank’s “I Gave” sticker (below) and post from your account. The image will also be posted and available to be re-posted from FirstBank’s and Community First Foundation’s Instagram accounts. Another way to enter is by posting your own image that illustrates what Colorado Gives Day means to you.
  2. In the copy of your post, mention which nonprofit(s) you are a supporting on Colorado Gives Day, and why.
  3. Tag the FirstBank Instagram account (@efirstbank) and Community First Foundation Instagram account (@CommunityFirstFoundation).
  4. Include the hashtag #CGDGiveaway.

CONTEST TIMING:

Beginning today, if you follow the steps above you will be entered to win. The contest submission period ends on Dec. 9, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. MT. Winners will be randomly selected among the pool of valid entries, and will be announced after 9 a.m. MT. on Colorado Gives Day (Dec. 10).

CLAIMING A PRIZE AND MAKING DONATIONS

FirstBank will direct message the winners on Instagram, and each will have exactly one hour to acknowledge and accept their prize. If a winner does not respond within that hour, another winner will be selected.

Once a winner is selected and confirmed, their information will be passed on to Community First Foundation to either fund an existing ColoradoGives.org account, or create a new account.

TAXES AND OFFICIAL RULES

It should be noted that no funds will be transferred to or from each winner of the contest. Therefore, winners will not be able to claim or report this prize on their end-of-year taxes. For additional guidance, consult your tax professional.
