Align Your Business with Colorado Gives Day & Become a Sponsor!

By Angela Bevacqua, Senior Communications Specialist, Community First Foundation

So many people come together to make Colorado Gives Day happen each year. At Community First Foundation we are delighted to see more and more people and organizations become involved with this initiative to increase philanthropy throughout our state. Colorado Gives Day is a true community effort and the numbers show it is working.
Did you know that local businesses can align themselves with the event, too? We offer local businesses an opportunity to encourage the philanthropic spirit in Colorado and involve employees and customers in a cause that benefits the people they serve.

Sponsorship Levels & Benefits
A business can become a sponsor and reap the benefits starting at $1,000. Depending on the level of financial support, benefits range from a presence on the Colorado Gives Day website and other materials, recognition in the news, all the way up to a custom “badge” (digital graphic) that can be used to toot your horn on your website and social media. The largest contributors also receive name recognition on the donation checkout page viewed by tens of thousands of donors on Colorado Gives Day.
Don't you want this on your business' website?
Sponsor at a higher level for a custom version!
Making the Most of a Business Sponsorship
When a business becomes a sponsor, we share ways you can build energy, excitement and awareness about your workplace. It's a way to build morale and bring people together for the common good.

Some sample ideas include:
  • Bring snacks and set aside a time on Colorado Gives Day (Dec. 10) for staff to donate online together. Set up laptops or iPads in the lunchroom for a mini donation party. Is there a nonprofit in your immediate community that does work you admire?
  •  Offer a special perk for employees who donate.
  •  Set up department challenges based on numbers of nonprofits they support or total dollar amount donated.
There are endless ideas to make your sponsorship fun and rewarding.
