Supporting our Community this Colorado Gives Day

December 8, 2020

Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. Community First Foundation and First Bank are proud to partner to power the day through When you use the site to donate to participating nonprofits, your donation is boosted by the $1 Million Incentive Fund and counts towards prizes for nonprofits.

This Colorado Giving Day, we urge you to give what you can in support of those making a difference in our community in the spirit of generosity. As you consider giving back this Colorado Gives Day, here are several organizations and efforts we’d like to highlight:

Downtown Denver Partnership’s Public Events
With each community event we organize, it is our single purpose to bring people to downtown for a community event and our mission to enhance the vitality of Downtown Denver and to celebrate, encourage, foster and promote cultural diversity, community pride and appreciation for the arts.

Civic Center Conservancy
Through culture-driven community-building and creative urban place-making, the Civic Center Conservancy works to revitalize downtown Denver’s Civic Center Park — elevating and sustaining the National Historic Landmark as a vibrant and iconic cultural and community hub that contributes to tourism, economic vitality, cultural vibrancy, quality-of-life and civic pride.

Colorado Healing Fund
In the aftermath of mass violence, victims need immediate and long-term support. The Colorado Healing Fund provides a secure way for the public to donate to victims of these tragedies. We work with fellow victim service partners to identify victim needs and fill the gaps in financial resources.
