Colorado Gives Day!

Colorado’s largest one-day online giving event, presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, is coming up and we need your support. On Tuesday, December 8, 2015, thousands of donors will come together to support Colorado nonprofits like The Literacy Project of Eagle County. Last year, a record-breaking $26.2 million was raised for Colorado nonprofits. A reminder of what your individual donation means to us:
• $100 provides initial training for one tutor
• $250 provides books for five students
• $500 educates one adult for one year
• $1,000 educates one family for one year

$1 Million Incentive Fund
Thanks to Community First Foundation and First Bank, Colorado Gives Day features 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 Incentive Fund, which increases the value of every dollar donated.
