Colorado Gives Day 2013

See also

Colorado Gives Day is an initiative that makes it easy to support local nonprofits through online giving at one website. Starting at 12 a.m. on Tuesday, December 10, 2013, donations will be accepted during a 24-hour period at The site features detailed profiles of more than 1,000 Colorado nonprofits, including over 100 that are animal related.

Last year, the 24-hour campaign raised $15.7 million for distribution to 1,246 nonprofits. Processing fees are covered by Community First Foundation, FirstBank, and Colorado foundations and businesses, so that 100% of Colorado Gives Day donations goes directly to the participating nonprofits.

In addition to the financial contributions that help cover credit card fees, FirstBank has added several nonprofit cash prizes totaling $100,000. $1,000 prizes will be awarded to nonprofits chosen by randomly selected participants who correctly answer online trivia questions posted on FirstBank’s Facebook page.

I love Colorado Gives Day because it highlights not only the generosity of Coloradans, but also the many ways in which nonprofits enrich our community."
—Marla J. Williams, President and CEO of Community First Foundation
