Community foundation, nonprofits set $2M goal for Colorado Gives Day

FORT COLLINS — The Community Foundation of Northern Colorado and #NoCoGives, together with Larimer County nonprofit organizations, have set a $2 million goal for philanthropic gifts on Colorado Gives Day, which is Dec. 10.

Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy through online giving. The online channel for gifts to nonprofits in Northern Colorado is  NoCoGives.org.

The Community Foundation of Northern Colorado, to help prepare nonprofits for Colorado Gives Day, will sponsor a nonprofit rally at 11:30 a.m. Dec. 3 at the community foundation office, 4745 Wheaton Drive in Fort Collins. At that event, nonprofits will have access to marketing materials. Participants can RSVP here

In Larimer County, 220 nonprofits are participating; that list can be found at NoCoGives.org.

Donations can be scheduled before the actual Colorado Gives Day and will count toward the goal for that day.

“Colorado Gives Day is one of the most important fundraisers of the year for many area nonprofits,” Ella Fahrlander, chief engagement officer for the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado, said in a written statement. “These donations help the community grow in ways that wouldn’t be possible without it. Please join #NoCoGives and help us achieve our 2019 goal of raising $2 million for Larimer County nonprofits.”
