And students keep right on ringing their Freedom Bells this week and next, and on into the New Year! Thanks to the 69 individuals who gave online on Colorado Gives Day, December 5, as well as the two dozen or more who brought in checks or cash. We especially want to recognize the Tuesday morning Seniors group who passed a bucket around the room for contributions at the urging of John Batron. Our total for the Day was $13,353. In addition, the weeks of November preceding the big day saw us collect another $10,000-plus.
Colorado Gives Day again broke its previous giving records, with $36,129,285 in donations from more than 150,000 donors. Our portion was modest compared to that number, but we are very happy and grateful for our small part and the opportunities these funds offer to our students, It’s great to be part of this statewide effort in its eighth year!
