Can’t Wait? Schedule Your Donation for Colorado Gives Day

By Angela Bevacqua, Senior Communications Specialist

Sometimes you just can’t wait. 

That’s why you can schedule Colorado Gives Day donations in advance from November through December 8. Take your time, explore the variety of nonprofits serving your community, and schedule donations at your leisure. Your donation will process on Colorado Gives Day, December 9, and will receive a boost from the $ 1 Million Incentive Fund and count toward cashprize tallies for nonprofits.

Are you ready? Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Go to ColoradoGives.org. Search for nonprofits by name, keyword, city, zip code or type of cause.
  2. Find a nonprofit to support and press the orange “Donate” button. Add your donation amount and press the “CO Gives Day” button to schedule it to process on Dec. 9. Complete the other fields and click “add to cart.”
  3. Want to donate to more than one organization? Click on the “add more nonprofits to cart” button on the next page and keep going!
  4. Schedule Your CO Gives Day Donation in Advance!
  5. When all your scheduled donations are in the cart, continue checking out by logging in or creating a donor account, entering your payment information, and then submit.

Please note that you will receive an acknowledgement e-mail that indicates you have scheduled a donation. A second  e-mail confirming that the donation was made will be issued when it is processed on Colorado Gives Day. A copy of this email will also be stored on your donor account and can be accessed at any time.

Thank you for your generosity!

Meeting Space Celebrity Sighting: Natalie Portman

Valerie Brown, Meeting Space Administrator
I met Natalie Portman in the Community First Foundation Meeting Space yesterday.
Okay, not the Natalie Portman of Star Wars, V for Vendetta and Black Swan. This Natalie Portman is a top-notch meeting facilitator who was working with a group advancing Mental Health First Aid in Jefferson County. Led by Jefferson Center for Mental Health, the group met in our largest meeting room to discuss training community members on how to identify persons who may benefit from mental health resources.
Jefferson Center for Mental Health is one of the dizzying array of nonprofits to have come through our doors since we opened the Meeting Space a year ago! February 2016 saw one meeting lasting four hours with six people. February 2017 saw 37 meetings for a total of 250 hours with 799 people through the door! In fact, in the first year we have hosted 269 meetings lasting a total of 1,822 hours and have seen 5,615 people through the door.
These people do the goo…
