Our mountain community is home to many nonprofit organizations which enrich the lives of local residents by providing services ranging from after school and adult educational programs to healthcare assistance, food banks and other social services, cultural enrichment and much more. These groups rely on the generosity of donors and volunteers alike for support, and again this year, a group of mountain area nonprofit organizations have joined forces
to promote awareness of Colorado Gives Day—an annual, statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy through online giving. These groups are encouraging people to make online donations on Tuesday, December 6, which will directly impact the organizations that people in this community rely upon for assistance, entertainment and inspiration.
For the seventh year, Community First Foundation and FirstBank will present Colorado Gives Day on Tuesday, December 6, 2016. This annual statewide movement celebrates and increases philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. The $1 Million Incentive Fund created by the partners is one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country.
Last year, Center for the Arts Evergreen brought in more donations than ever, and we hope you will support us again this year. We have so many exciting things planned for 2017, including a big move to our new building at the old Bergen Park Church location.
Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year.
To get the most out of today, please consider scheduling your Colorado Gives Day donation to the Conifer Historical Society! With so many amazing Non-Profits participating in #COGivesDay, why choose us? Well, we are the keepers of Conifer's original Area Junction School House. The unique Little White Schoolhouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Your donation preserves this local treasure!

I told myself I wasn't going to do this - you know, send that reminder email about Colorado Gives Day, the one you've received about a dozen times already. I understand how overwhelming it can be to receive so many emails, all asking for your support, because I receive them, too.
But then the little voice inside my head said, "What if someone thinks Bootstraps is not participating in Colorado Gives Day because you didn't send the email?"
Obviously, the little voice won. If you choose to make a gift to Bootstraps on Colorado Gives Day, there will be many grateful high school seniors in May 2017 who will be pursuing their educational dreams because of your generosity. You'll also receive a phone call from me to thank you.
Thank you for your support!
Car crashes in the U.S. are a leading cause of death for children 1 to 13 years old. In 2012, 37% of the children killed in a car crash were not in a car seat, booster or seat belt. The same year, 284 children's lives were saved by child restraints. At DRIVE SMART, our mission is to save lives by reducing traffic-related fatalities. DRIVE SMART has certified technicians who would love to help you properly install your safety seat. Financial assistance is available to ensure families in need get proper car seats for their children.
THANKS TO YOU ...
DRIVE SMART has completed more than 2500 Child Safety Checks, donated more than 500 booster and car seats to families in need, and hosted Child Passenger Safety presentations to almost 30,000 children to date!
DRIVE SMART is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing traffic-related fatalities and injuries. We accomplish this by developing solutions to transportation safety issues and changing driving attitudes and behaviors, in partnership with schools, businesses, civic, community and government agencies.
Please help us continue saving lives with a donation on Colorado Gives Day. You don't have to wait until December 6 -- schedule your donation today and take advantage of the $1 Million Incentive Fund that will add $$$ to your donation.
The Venue Theatre is proud to collaborate with and support many local non-profits. In December alone we are hosting events that support Harmony Hills Academy, The Conifer Historical Society, The Mountain Resource Center, and The Mountain Peace Shelter. Please consider giving to The Venue Theatre this Tuesday, December 6th for Colorado Gives Day so that we can continue to provide excellent theater and life education to local youth and to support our local non-profits.
The Venue Theatre is a non-profit children's theatre that is run by one full-time and four part-time paid employees and volunteers. With a 40% increase in enrollment over the past few seasons, The Venue is at a crucial place where we are needing to add more resources including directors, assistant directors, technical assistants, and rehearsal space. In order to accommodate our growing number of students and continue to serve our community, we are in need of financial support more now than ever. Our board of directors has pledged a $6,000 matching donation if we receive $6,000 in public funds in addition to pledging to match the $750 that our high school students have committed to donating - learn more by watching the video below. Please consider gifting to The Venue Theatre on Colorado Gives Day. You can schedule your donation for December 6th today!
