Colorado Gives Day: A Short Guide to Donors and Fundraisers

So, what is Colorado Gives Day?

Colorado Gives Day, hosted by Community First Foundation and FirstBank partner has grown to be Colorado’s largest 24-hour giving event. Since it began in 2010, it has raised more than $362 million for Colorado causes. Each December, Coloradans come together with the common goal to strengthen the community by helping to power nonprofits. Among them, the Kempe Foundation takes part in the event as well.

When is it happening?

There are two key dates for Colorado Gives day:

  • November 1: Early Giving begins
  • November 28: Giving Tuesday or National Giving Day 
  • December 5: Colorado Gives Day

Early giving is a chance for donors to give before the big day. December 5th is the official start of Colorado Gives Day. If you are interested in making a fundraising page for the Kempe Foundation, you can start that process as early as now!

What is a fundraising page?
