FirstBank Offers $100,000 in Cash Prizes

By Lisa Adams, Assistant Vice President, FirstBank

FirstBank has been a proud supporter of Colorado Gives Day, the 24-hour online fundraising movement created by Community First Foundation, since it was launched in 2010. Colorado Gives Day is a cause that each and every team member at FirstBank is extremely passionate about. It’s a true honor to give back to the communities that have helped us grow and succeed.

Each year, we look forward to giving back through a donation to Colorado Gives Day to help kick-start the season of giving – and this year is no different. In 2014, FirstBank is pitching in $600,000 to Colorado Gives Day. This year, $100,000 of our donation is headed straight to the pockets of individual nonprofits with the help of several fun prizes.

Live Drawings December 8 During Rally at the Capitol
Nonprofits will have a chance to win one of five $1,000 cash prizes at a live drawing at the Colorado Gives Day Rally, held at 11 a.m. on December 8 at the State Capitol. During the Rally, FirstBank will hold random drawings and award $1,000 prizes to four attending nonprofits and one regional nonprofit selected from groups that register online.

Trivia Contest Provides More Cash for Nonprofits
FirstBank is sponsoring a trivia contest on the FirstBank Facebook page December 1 - 5. As part of the trivia contest, 10 lucky Colorado Gives Day supporters will choose nonprofits to receive $1,000 cash prizes. FirstBank will randomly select two winners each day from correct answers posted on the Facebook page. Each winner will select a Colorado Gives Day nonprofit of their choice to receive the cash award.

Luck of the Draw Prizes Total $85,000
FirstBank is also sponsoring 17 Luck of the Draw prizes worth $5,000 each for nonprofits. To be eligible for the drawing, first-time participants must receive a minimum of 30 donations through coloradogives.org, and returning nonprofits must have an increase in dollars raised over last year. The Luck of the Draw winners are selected randomly after Colorado Gives Day.
