Colorado Gives Day is only two weeks away! On December 9th this annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving will give you the opportunity to help support your local Boys & Girls Clubs in a big way.

To motivate donors to give on Colorado Gives Day, Community First Foundation and FirstBank partnered to create a $1 Million Incentive Fund. The incentive fund, proportionally increases the value of every dollar donated and is 300 percent larger than last year.

Now is the best time of the year to give where you live! 100% of your donation to Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver will help families who rely on their local Club’s support on a daily basis.

Here is how your generous donation can make an immediate and visible impact in the life of a kid:

  • $35 buys 7 books for a Club
  • $100 pays for football uniforms for 1 team
  • $250 provides 6 hours of tutoring
  • $500 sends a child to summer camp
  • $1,000 provides a year of programs for 1 child
  • $5,000 outfits a Club’s technology center
