Why would so many local charities vying for the same pool of dollars work collaboratively? To promote the importance of supporting the idea of giving locally!

In 2012, representatives from local charities began working together to form the Douglas County Non-Profit Coalition (DCNPC). The coalition, since renamed Douglas County Gives, is dedicated “to promoting, growing and finding synergies among local charities through increased awareness” of the broad array of charitable organizations within Douglas County. The effort is centered around those organizations eligible to participate in Colorado Gives Day.

Douglas County Gives represents charities doing work in a variety of areas including animal welfare, arts, education, health, land and wildlife conservation, nutrition, and wellness.

In an effort to raise $500,000 collectively among the participating charities, Douglas County Gives has developed this website and other outreach tools with the assistance of FirstBank of Douglas County, Douglas County Community Foundation, Promise Ranch and The Outlets at Castle Rock. In addition, Colorado Community Media has agreed to be the group's Media Partner and will help promote the our local fundraising efforts.

DouglasCountyGives is intended to be a resource for anyone wanting to learn about the wide range of philanthropic organizations located within the County, and is a tool that can be used to quickly support the non-profit of your choice.

Here is a glimpse of the amazing work Douglas County non-profit organizations are pursuing!
