FirstBank Prizes: Who Doesn’t Like a Little Extra?

By Angela Bevacqua, Senior Communications Specialist, Community First Foundation

FirstBank, corporate partner for Colorado Gives Day, is giving nonprofits participating in the 24 giving blitz a chance to add even more to their coffers. Like previous years, FirstBank is contributing $500,000 towards the $1 Million Incentive Fund plus $100,000 in cash prizes. The cash prizes are a fun way to bring in a little extra. 

$100,000 in Cash Prizes
Here’s the breakdown of this year’s prizes. Our tried and true prize categories have returned, along with one that is new and different:

  • Facebook Trivia Prizes – 15 prizes at $1,000 each
  • Rally Prizes – 10 prizes at $1,000 each
  • Luck-of-the-Draw Prizes – 13 prizes at $5,000 each
  • Kids for ColoradoGives Prizes – 1,000 prizes at $10 each

Something New for Kids
This year we’re allocating $10,000 for nonprofits receiving donations through KidsforColoradoGives.org, our new website for young givers. As a kid-friendly component of ColoradoGives.org, this site makes online giving fun and safe for children.

To promote Colorado nonprofits and the site, we are distributing what we call “Donation Dollars” to kids around the state. These virtual funds become real gifts when kids use them to make donations on KidsforColoradoGives.org through December 6.
