We want to thank everyone who gave to Meals on Wheels Fort Collins on Colorado Gives Day. This is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. For the sixth consecutive year, Community First Foundation and FirstBank are partnering to present Colorado Gives Day. Donations are accepted through ColoradoGivesDay.org.
“While we didn't raise enough to meet our goal, we did raise more than $19,000 which certainly helps us to ensure that no senior is hungry or alone,” says Glenda Shayne, Executive Director.
$1 Million Incentive Fund
Thanks to Community First Foundation and First Bank, Colorado Gives Day 2017, features 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 incentive fund, which increases the value of every dollar donated. For example, if Meals on Wheels receives 10% of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, they also receive 10% of the $1 Million Incentive Fund.
“Thanks to generous Coloradans and hardworking nonprofits, we’ve seen the impact of Colorado Gives Day build dramatically over the last four years in every way,” said Marla J. Williams, president and CEO of Community First Foundation. “Not only the dollars raised, but the number of nonprofits and donors contributing to the success of the day has also grown tremendously. We look forward to continuing the momentum this year.”
