About Colorado Gives Day
Presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy through online giving. The event is powered by ColoradoGives.org, a year-round, online giving website. Search for our profile on the site and make your safe and secure donation in a few easy steps.
"The donations we receive on Colorado Gives Day help us do more to support the community and ensure that we can continue to provide unlimited opportunities for our students to participate in speech and debate at no cost to their families," says Jessica Clark, DUDL's Executive Director. "Our goal is to raise $10,000 this year, which help us support our continued growth and demonstrate to the community how important the Denver Urban Debate League has become. We also want to get a share of the $1 Million Incentive Fund."
$1 Million Incentive Fund
Community First Foundation and FirstBank each contributed $500,000 to create a $1 Million Incentive Fund, one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country. Every nonprofit receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day receives a portion of the fund, which increases the value of every dollar donated. For example, if the Denver Urban Debate League receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, the Denver Urban Debate League also receives 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund.
