Bright Future Foundation is once again participating in Colorado Gives Day – Colorado’s largest day of giving. Scheduled for Tuesday, December 5, 2017, Colorado Gives Day is the ultimate feel-good giving experience that connects donors with nonprofits while connecting nonprofits with an expanded base of supporters.
Bright Future first participated in 2013, and to date has raised over $80,000 to support its prevention and intervention programs in Eagle County. Each participating organization must meet eligibility requirements and is screened by Community First Foundation to ensure specific standards are met before being added to the program.
“We’re grateful to the friends and supporters who contribute to the campaign each year,” said Bright Future’s Executive Director Sheri Mintz. “and it is exciting to add new supporters who have found us through Colorado Gives. Each gift helps BFF’s efforts to end violence in our community, and also helps our clients to develop their self-esteem, self-sufficiency, and empower their futures.”
Donations can be scheduled ahead of time, starting on November 1, 2017, and each gift is boosted by a $1 million incentive fund. For example, if a nonprofit organization receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, that same nonprofit receives 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund. Created by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, the fund is one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country.
