It's here! Today is Colorado Gives Day and easily, online you can help the Denver Cat Care Society with its its important work in the community.
New this year: In Honor of/In Memory of electronic messages. GivingFirst.com has added the functionality so when making a donation 'in honor of' or 'in memory of' someone (or a favorite kitty in Cat Care's case), the donor can send a quick eCard sharing that a donation was made for how much and to whom.
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.
