Colorado Gives Day was an unbelievable success this past Wednesday. Community First Foundation and FirstBank have partnered to help increase donations to the states nonprofit sector. Colorado Gives Day was formed to help over 450 Colorado nonprofit organizations through a one-day online giving program. Surprisingly, Colorado ranks among the lowest states in charitable contributions even though it has higher average incomes. The goal this year was to raise one million in one day. After the 24 hours were over, everyone was stunned that over 8 million was raised! The incredible outpouring of support for those in need is amazing! I hope this is sign for positive things to come in 2011!
