Over the course of the entire prize, that’s a lot of visibility — and potential impact — for a nonprofit trying to make a difference.”

The Power of Media Sponsors

By Kayla Arnesen, Director of Strategic Communications
Thanks to our wonderful Colorado Gives Day media sponsors, our statewide movement is receiving nearly $500,000 in donated print, online, on-air and billboard media support. These powerful partnerships help us reach Coloradans in nearly every part of the state and encourage them to donate to their favorite nonprofits on Colorado Gives Day.

This year, we are pleased to welcome Mile High Outdoor Advertising to our family of Colorado Gives Day media sponsors. The company operates eight digital billboards across the state.


Right now, the Colorado Gives Day message is shining bright for motorists to see in five locations throughout the Denver metro area, in one location in Monument and in two locations in Grand Junction.

On Colorado Gives Day, the billboards will run the donation ticker from Colorado Gives Day website to show how much has been raised. The billboards will update every six seconds!

How many times have we heard that in this age of smart phones and tablets?  
Are you wondering how many days, hours, and seconds it is until Colorado Gives Day? Have you started an office pool to guess how much will be raised on December 9th?
I am excited to announce that we now have a Colorado Gives Day app! Our app is available in both the Google Play store and the iTunes store. You can download it now for free and start tracking how much time is left until Colorado Gives Day.
Once Colorado Gives Day is here, the free app tracks the number of money being raised statewide on Colorado Gives Day, along with the number of organizations receiving donations and the number of total donations. You can also track the totals for our Regional Champions spearheading Colorado Gives Day around the state.
