Support us on Colorado Gives Day 2015 – an easy way to make an impact!

It’s only a month away – Colorado Gives Day 2015, and a great opportunity to support our programs and philosophy at the Colorado Center for the Blind!

You know that we don’t just teach blindness skills, as important as they are, but aim for that belief in those blindness skills that lead to confidence and self-reliance. Whether it’s our Seniors, Youth or Independence Training Programs, those extras like challenge recreation, art, our special emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), or attending the largest annual gathering of the blind in the world – the National Federation of the Blind Convention – your donation can make the difference!

Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. For the sixth year, Community First Foundation and FirstBank are partnering to present Colorado Gives Day on Tuesday, December 8, 2015. Donations are accepted through ColoradoGives.org

Last year, Colorado Gives Day brought in more than $23 million in donations to Colorado nonprofits. We received nearly $14,000, but our goal for this year is $20,000!

What’s Really Great about CGD

  • Colorado Gives Day 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.
  • Community First Foundation and First Bank absorb all but 2 percent of credit card fees related to your donations – but only on December 8! This means that more of your online donation comes back to the Colorado Center for the Blind to support our programs!
  • Recurring donations can be set up, meaning you can make smaller weekly, monthly or quarterly donations that have a larger impact all year long!
  • Can’t wait until Colorado Gives Day? Starting November 1, 2015, donations can be scheduled ahead of time.

So, please go online and support our programs at the Colorado Center for the Blind!
