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 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!
