On December 8 Colorado Gives and HBF Clients Elevate!

Colorado Gives Day is a statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy through online giving and is a great way to “Give Where You Live”. Colorado’s largest day of giving, Colorado Gives Day, is taking place on Tuesday, December 8, 2020. On this day, thousands of people come together to support Colorado nonprofits like ours. When you give on Colorado Gives Day, your donation will be boosted by the $1 Million Incentive Fund. The $1 Million Incentive Fund is made possible by Community First Foundation and FirstBank.

Colorado Gives Day offers a great opportunity for us to come together as one community to support HBF and our clients. Before you get busy with the holidays, you can schedule your donation now while you are thinking about it. Visit ColoradoGives.org, to schedule your Colorado Gives Day donation. BONUS: Pre-schedule your donation before December 8th and Chris’ Garage Doors will help boost our giving by matching $2,500 dollar for dollar for everyone who pre-schedules their donation!

For the past two years, HBF has met or exceeded our goal of reaching $25,000 on Colorado Gives Day. Even the smallest donation can make a huge impact for those living with disabilities. By participating in Colorado Gives Day you will join one of the largest one-day giving movements in the country and you will be helping HBF meet this goal again for 2020.

Colorado Gives Day is a really important day for nonprofits like HBF. Like many nonprofit organizations, the COVID pandemic has stretched HBF resources. Restrictions have curtailed the ability to fundraise. Like other businesses, social distancing and changing work places/spaces, require all non-profits to do more with less. This year HBF will rely heavily on alternate opportunities, like Colorado Gives Day to support our clients.

To donate to us on Colorado Gives Day, go to ColoradoGives.org/hbfdenver to make you gift on Tuesday, December 8th.

Alternately, make a bigger impact by scheduling your donation early!
