What is Colorado Gives Day?

Colorado Gives Day (CGD) is an annual one-day online giving event benefitting over 3,000 nonprofits and, as a result, all Coloradans. It’s scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 6.

FirstBank partnered with Community First Foundation (CFF) in 2010 to create Colorado Gives Day, and since then, the giving movement has raised an astounding $362 million.

How Can You Help?

Coloradans can give as little as $1 to a cause they care about. Early giving begins on Nov. 1, all donations made from Nov. 1st through Dec. 6th will count towards Colorado Gives Day. Visit coloradogives.org, where you can shop nonprofit/s by location or cause, and select the ones you’d like to donate to.

Keep in mind, the giving doesn’t have to end after Colorado Gives Day. You can help your favorite nonprofits year-round by visiting coloradogives.org. It’s a great way to show support to organizations that do so much to help our communities.


How to Amplify Your Giving

FirstBank, Community First Foundation, and other sponsors have partnered to create a $1.4 Million Incentive Fund. This fund will amplify giving on Colorado Gives Day by proportionally matching the percentage amount raised by each nonprofit. For example, if nonprofit X raises 10 percent of the total donation amount on CGD, they will receive 10 percent of the Incentive Fund as a matching contribution.

Contributing to your preferred nonprofit on Colorado Gives Day and encouraging a friend, family, or neighbor to do the same is a great way to help your chosen nonprofit benefit from the Incentive Fund.
