It’s been said that need knows no season, which is certainly true. However, a donation to a charitable organization around the holidays can have an especially powerful impact on the people within your community. At A-Train, one of our company values is to do all we can to have a positive impact on clients, colleagues, and community, which is why so many of our clients are nonprofit organizations. It’s also why we are advocates for the entities and individuals that support them.
A program of Community First Foundation, ColoradoGives is a way for Colorado nonprofit organizations to share information about their missions, connect with the community and increase donations year-round. For over a decade, the program has provided nonprofits with an online giving platform that encourages supporters to make donations quickly, easily and securely. More than 2,300 organizations are currently listed on the site, and Community First Foundation researches each to ensure adherence to their high standards.
Since 2007, more than $200 million has been raised for Colorado nonprofits through ColoradoGives.org. Many of our clients can continue the vital work they do thanks to donations they receive.
Gifts Go Further on Colorado Gives Day
Colorado Gives Day is an initiative of Community First Foundation and FirstBank that seeks to support the important work of Colorado nonprofits by making charitable gifts go even further. The single day of fundraising has raised more than $145 million since it began in 2010.
This year, Colorado Gives Day is Tuesday, Dec. 5. On that day, every organization that accepts a donation will also receive a portion of a $1 million Incentive Fund. Donors don’t have to take any additional steps to expand the impact of their generous gifts.
If you’ll be donating to a nonprofit organization this holiday season, we encourage you to consider doing so through ColoradoGives.org and to give your gift on Colorado Gives Day, Tuesday, Dec. 5. We also encourage you to learn more about our nonprofit clients that are Colorado Gives Day participants and the amazing work they do:
It’s easy to donate through ColoradoGives.org, and every gift, no matter how large or small can make a big impact.
“At A-Train, we have always believed that giving is a key component to running a strong business,” says Gretchen Gaede, president of A-Train. “The best way to lead by example, whether leading a team, your family or peers, is to practice generosity. Whenever I am in a position to give, I remember that there is always someone that has needs greater than mine.”
From all of us at A-Train… Happy Holidays!
