Support Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers on Colorado Gives Day

We invite Coloradans to support public lands and community stewardship by donating to us on Colorado Gives Day, December 10, 2019.

 

Presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy through online giving. The event is powered by ColoradoGives.org, a year-round, online giving website. Search for our profile on the site and make your safe and secure donation in a few easy steps.

 

Colorado Gives Day is one of our most important fundraisers of the year. Over the years, your donations have empowered hundreds of volunteers to enhance our public lands through community-engaged stewardship projects. This past season has been extremely successful. We mobilized more than 2,000 volunteers to improve over 30 miles of local trails from Aspen to Rifle. Beyond our trail days, we swiftly responded to the Lake Christine fire in Basalt with 1,000 volunteer hours devoted to reseeding 500 acres of burned area. We hope to capture this momentum in our 25th year to make the 2020 project season one of the largest to date.

$1 Million Incentive Fund

Community First Foundation and FirstBank each contributed $500,000 to create a $1 Million Incentive Fund, one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country. Every nonprofit receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day receives a portion of the fund, which increases the value of every dollar donated. 

 

Community First Foundation, a leading foundation dedicated to fueling the power of community to drive positive change, and FirstBank, Colorado’s largest locally owned bank, have partnered to present Colorado Gives Day for the past eight years. By making fundraising simple for nonprofits and giving easy for donors, it is one the most successful events of its kind in the nation. Last year, $35.3 million was raised for Colorado nonprofits in just 24 hours.
