CO Gives $1 Million Dollar Incentive Fund
This year’s $1.5 Million Incentive Fund is made possible by Community First Foundation, FirstBank and other community members. It increases the value of every donation proportionally and is one of the largest in the country!
Here’s how it works: If a nonprofit organization receives 10 percent of the total amount of money raised on Colorado Gives Day, that same nonprofit receives 10 percent of the $1.5 Million Incentive Fund.
At the completion of Colorado Gives Day, the Foundation will determine each nonprofit’s proportionate share of the incentive fund by dividing the total amount each charity raised by the total amount of donations to all participating nonprofits. This amount will then be multiplied by the total amount of dollars in the Incentive Fund.
