The number of website visits to GivingFirst.org on Colorado Gives Day –nearly 24,000—is impressive, too. It shows us that GivingFirst.org is a growing resource for people who want to learn about local charities.
And although there is a concentration of both nonprofits and people in the Denver metro area, people from 75% of the counties in Colorado made a donation on December 8.
The most common donation size through GivingFirst.org dropped from $100 pre-recession to $50 in the heart of the recession. Yet on Colorado Gives Day the most common gift size popped back up to $100.
A fun fact from the Colorado Gives Day report is that one individual made 41 donations for a total of $3,900. I know the feeling of getting on GivingFirst and wanting to keep adding organizations to my shopping cart!
