Schedule Your Donations on #GivingTuesday

By Angela Bevacqua, Senior Communications Specialist, Community First Foundation

#GivingTuesday is a campaign to create a global day of service and charitable giving at the beginning of the holiday season. It’s a response to consumer-driven days like Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

This year #GivingTuesday takes place on December 2—one week before Colorado Gives Day. And although #GivingTuesday encourages acts of service, it does not accept or distribute donations. What a perfect time to plan your Colorado Gives Day donations or schedule them in advance!

If you’re a nonprofit on ColoradoGives.org, here are some suggested social media posts to share on Dec. 2:
