Cat Care Society has been accepted as a registered non-profit organization at GivingFirst.org, a program of the Community First Foundation. The announcement is made by Diane Stoner, President of the CCS Board of Directors who says, "Cat Care Society is simply thrilled to be a new GivingFirst.org participant. The opportunity to reach patrons and donors beyond the scope of our individual efforts, combined with no processing fees for donations made on Colorado Gives Day December 6th, means more funding will go directly to our important community programs at the Cat Care Society. This support for our appeal efforts is unprecedented.”
This is the second year for Colorado Gives Day and, similar to last year, processing fees will be covered by Community First Foundation, FirstBank and local foundations so that 100 percent of Colorado Gives Day donations go directly to nonprofit organizations such as CCS. FirstBank, Colorado’s largest locally owned bank, has renewed its role as corporate partner of Colorado Gives Day, committing $500,000 to kick off the 2011 campaign including $300,000 for the FirstBank Incentive Fund. The FirstBank Incentive Fund will be proportionally allocated across all donations received, increasing the value of each donation. FirstBank is also sponsoring 12 new High Five prizes at $5,000 each.
