FirstBank Sets $100,000 Aside for Nonprofit Prizes on Colorado Gives Day

By Lisa Adams, FirstBank

FirstBank has been a proud supporter of Colorado Gives Day, the state’s largest online giving movement, since its launch in 2010. Everyone at FirstBank is passionate about the initiative and honored to give back to the local communities that have helped us grow and succeed. Each year, we provide more than $600,000 in support for ColoradoGives, including $100,000 that goes straight to nonprofit organizations through several fun prize programs:

"Why Colorado Gives” Social Media Prizes ($1,000 each)
From Monday, November 30, through Friday, December 4, FirstBank Facebook fans will have a chance to win one of fifteen $1,000 cash prizes to donate to the Colorado Gives charity of their choice. To qualify, fans will have to post a photo or video to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram about why they give. When posting your photo on Facebook make sure the privacy settings are set to public so Community First Foundation & FirstBank can view it. Posts must tag ColoradoGives on Twitter or Facebook and FirstBank on TwitterFacebook or Instagram, and use the hashtags #WhyColoradoGives and #COGivesDay. Winners will be randomly drawn from a statewide pool three times a day throughout the five day contest.

Live Rally Prizes ($1,000 each)
Community First Foundation will coordinate a random drawing of five nonprofit names at the Colorado Gives Day Rally on December 7 at the State Capitol in downtown Denver. FirstBank will hold random drawings and award $1,000 prizes to four attending nonprofits and one regional nonprofit selected from organizations that register online before the event.

Luck-of-the-Draw Prizes ($5,000 each)
In late December, FirstBank will randomly select and award $5,000 to sixteen ColoradoGives organizations. 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.
