The holiday season inspires philanthropy. And with so many opportunities, it’s easy for Coloradans to give back this season! From online giving to holiday shopping, here are four ways you can support Colorado charities this year.
Colorado Gives Day
Today, December 4, marks the 8th annual Colorado Gives Day! The fundraising event highlights the work of non-profit organizations across the state, with the mission to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving.
Since it’s inception in 2010, Colorado Gives Day has raised over $182 million for Colorado nonprofits. This year, over 2,500 nonprofits are featured on their site.
With an online giving website, it’s simple and easy to make a donation to the charities you love. Visit ColoradoGives.org to browse the charities and pledge your support to the cause.
Colorado REALTOR® Foundation
One of the featured nonprofits is the Colorado REALTOR® Foundation (CRF), the philanthropic arm of the Colorado Association of REALTORS® (CAR). Their vision is to help Coloradans achieve the American dream of homeownership.
The Colorado REALTOR® Foundation promotes safe and affordable housing, advances homeownership for all Coloradans, and provides housing-related disaster assistance to our neighbors in need.
Through programs and grants, Colorado REALTORS Foundation promotes community outreach of over 25,500 Colorado REALTORS to promote safe and affordable housing. REcolorado is proud to support the mission of CRF. Support homeownership in Colorado >>
Turn your holiday shopping into an opportunity to give back. Simply add the word “smile” to the URL when you shop on Amazon, like this: smile.amazon.com. When you shop from this URL, a portion of every purchase supports your selected charity. Learn more >>
Through December 12, the REcolorado office is a drop-off site for the Front Range Realtor Toy Drive for the Boys and Girls Club. We encourage any real estate agent attending a training at REcolorado this month to bring an unwrapped toy to drop in the designated box in the lobby. Anyone is welcome to participate! If you work in or near the Tech Center, stop by our Greenwood Village office to drop off a toy! Find our office address >>
