The Community First Foundation, an Arvada-based foundation dedicated to increasing community generosity and involvement, will be hosting the 4th Annual Colorado Gives Day on Tuesday, December 10, 2013.
Through GivingFirst.org, this 24 hour initiative is designed to encourage Coloradans to give online and help raise as much money as possible for local nonprofits in a single day.
Last year, the Arvada Center celebrated a successful 2012 Colorado Gives Day by raising nearly $12,000, thanks to 125 generous donors. For the first time, the Arvada Center partnered with the Arvada Beer Company to offer Colorado Gives Day donors a sampling of their fresh handcrafted ales. By raising a glass in support of the Arvada Center’s theater and arts education programs, donations were doubled from the previous year.
We are grateful for the generous support that we received throughout this special day! Every dollar donated will help us reach more than 70,000 school children and will keep the arts accessible, alive and thriving in our community.
