Colorado Gives Day!

By Elizabeth Weiler on November 25, 2023

Citywide Banks Match
This year, we’re honored to announce that Citywide Banks will be matching every donation to our Colorado Gives Day campaign up to a total of $15,000. That means every dollar you donate before December 6, 2023, will be doubled until the $15k match fund is met! We are overwhelmed by their incredible generosity and dedication to our community.

About Colorado Gives Day
For those who are unfamiliar, Colorado Gives Day is an annual event put on by the Colorado Gives Foundation for the purpose of connecting people, ideas, and nonprofits throughout the state of Colorado. This year’s event is set for December 5, 2023 – but you can donate to our fundraiser anytime!

Since its inception in 2010, Colorado Gives has grown into the single biggest 24-hour giving movement in the state, in which nonprofits are able to fundraise and gain access to additional funds made available by participating sponsors. Nonprofits can win $100,000 worth of prizes thanks to FirstBank, the Colorado Gives Day presenting sponsor. Donors who give $100 or more to a single nonprofit could win round-trip airfare from Southwest Airlines.

Important Dates Upcoming
As we mentioned, you can donate to our campaign anytime and we hope you will! BUT there are some days when your donation could even further by potentially unlocking additional prizes for AMHR (or yourself).
