Colorado Gives Day

Presented by FirstBank

What if there was a day that as Coloradans, we got to celebrate the impact of coming together and lifting up our local communities? Luckily for all of us, there is such a day and it is called Colorado Gives Day.  

Last year, Coloradans came together to raise over $54.2M for Colorado Gives Day spreading a wave of generosity across the state. Since the inception of Colorado Gives Day in 2010, you've been supporting nonprofits, raising more than $469 million through the giving event to help our communities thrive. With the causes you care about the most organized in one place, it's easy to find something you're passionate about with more than 3,800 nonprofits to support. 

See the Impact Reports for 2023 Year Round Giving and Colorado Gives Day.

Mark your calendars! Colorado Gives Day is December 10, 2024.

Amplify Your Impact

$1M+ Incentive Fund

Every donation made during Colorado Gives Day is boosted by one of the largest Incentive Funds in the country!


How it works

All nonprofits receive a % of the fund equal to the % they raise for Colorado Gives Day. Raise 10%, get 10% of the Incentive Fund.



Nonprofit A Raised ($10,000) divided by the Total Amount Raised on Gives Day ($10,000,000) x Total Amount in Incentive Fund ($1,000,000) = Individual Nonprofit's Share of Incentive Fund ($1,000)*

 *All numbers presented in the example with the exception of the Incentive Fund amount are hypothetical.
