Colorado Gives Day: Why, How, and When You Can Support Your Habitat for Humanity
Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. Thanks to the Community First Foundation and FirstBank, #COGives is in its 10th year. The 24-hour statewide movement celebrates and increases philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. Colorado Gives Day is powered by ColoradoGives.org, a year-round, online giving website featuring more than 2,500 nonprofits. Colorado Gives Day is one of the most successful events of its kind in the nation. Since its inception in 2010, the event has raised more than $217 million for Colorado nonprofits. This year, in celebration of the 10th anniversary, Colorado Gives Day is officially Tuesday, December 10, 2019, and continues to provide a $1 Million Dollar Incentive Fund aimed at increasing the value of every Colorado Gives Day donation.
When you use the official ColoradoGives.org website to donate to Habitat for Humanity Roaring Fork Valley, your donation will be boosted by the $1 Million Incentive Fund and count towards additional donations and prizes for nonprofits.
Why Give on Tuesday, December 10?
First, you’ll be a part of the state-wide movement, which feels good and can be quite exciting! Second, every dollar counts, so whether you donate $10 or $10,000, you will be making a state-wide impact. Finally, thanks to the $1 Million Incentive Fund, designed to increase the value of every donation proportionally, and your donation could boost Habitat Roaring Fork!
At the completion of Colorado Gives Day, the Foundation will determine each nonprofit’s proportionate share of the incentive fund by dividing the total amount each non-profit raised by the total amount of donations to all participating non-profits. This amount will then be multiplied by the total amount of dollars in the Incentive Fund.
How to Give on Tuesday, December 10?
You have two options: 1) If you’re a planner, you can schedule your donation ahead of time by using the platform ColoradoGives.org has created and this helpful step-by-step guide. 2) If you’re more spontaneous, you can hop online anytime on Tuesday, December 10, visit ColoradoGives.org, search for Habitat for Humanity Roaring Fork Valley, or by region or county (hint: we’re in Garfield!) and donate on Colorado Gives Day.
Donations made through HabitatRoaringFork.org will not count towards #COGivesDay and we appreciate your participation in this annual day of giving.
