I give on Colorado Gives Day because my dollar goes further with a boost from Community First Foundation to support the amazing work of our League.
I give because I see firsthand the way our money is spent in our community, through programs such as Kids Connect, Read2Kids, and our Done in a Day philanthropic efforts. These programs have a significant impact in the Denver metro area, and specifically are helping us improve literacy rates in our community.
I give on Colorado Gives because, as a League member, I receive so much back from the League, including incredible training opportunities, connections with other amazing women, and insight into one of the most well-run nonprofits in Colorado.
