Colorado Gives Day, Tuesday, December 9, 2014, is coming rather quickly upon us. Community First Foundation and FirstBank have teamed together again this year and have an “App” which will help everyone, including the organizations being given the donations, see in real-time the status of those donations, where the most donations are being given and a running total of those donations throughout the state. This is very important this year as there is a special incentive fund where Non-Profits can increase their donations, proportionally dollar for dollar.
This free app is available at iTunes and Google Play for all Smart Phone owners. If you download the app now you will see a timer counting down the days till December 9th, to remind you of this very special day. If you are viewing this article on your smart phone click here and you will be taken to the Google Play page to down load the app.
Do you have a busy schedule and are worried you will not remember to get that donation in to help your favorite Non-Profit? The app has a solution for you. You can visit the app and schedule your donation to occur on Colorado Gives Day.
Not sure which Non-Profit you would like to donate to? Go to the app and search through the hundreds of Non-Profits who will be anxiously awaiting your donation, in hopes they will be the top donor for the day. The app gives you lots of information on the organization to include their location, phone numbers, e-mail, EIN number, Mission Statement, Financial Graphs, Impact Statements and more.
Dana Rinderknecht, the Director of Online Giving for Community First Foundation, made the following comments regarding the new app. “This app will let donors see the impact of their generosity in real time on their phones,” and “Coloradans will see the magnitude of their giving by watching the statewide total grow, as well as, the number of donations and organizations.”
Community First Foundation and FirstBank have had a partnership for this wonderful day of giving to our important Non-Profit groups in the state, since 2010. Their goal is to unite the citizens of Colorado by giving them a simple yet effective way of donating to Non-Profit Organizations. It will also educate and make the public more aware of the many Non-Profits the state has. The additional links you can click on will enable you to see many facts on each organization, so you can make sure you have made the right choice knowing you have given to the right organization who will use your donation in a manner you will be comfortable with and a cause you believe in.
As of 2013 Colorado Gives Day has enabled the distribution of over $58 million dollars to the Non-Profit sector in Colorado. Colorado Gives Day is not the only day you can donate to your favorite Non-Profit. ColoradoGives.org is a year round site where you can give anytime you wish. The site currently features nearly 1,500 organizations and is the official website for Colorado Gives Day.
