Global Refuge invites Coloradans to support our efforts to bring hope and healing to refugees by donating to us on Colorado Gives Day, December 8, 2015.
Presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy through online giving. The event is powered by ColoradoGives.org, a year-round, online giving website. Search for our profile on the site and make your safe and secure donation in a few easy steps.
“The donations we receive on Colorado Gives Day help us do more to support the community and ensure that neglected people around the world get the life-saving care that they need to survive.” says Jaden McNeely, Executive Director of Operations. “Our goal is to raise $15,000 for our Emergency Congo Response this year. The villages all around us in eastern Congo are being attacked, one as recent as last night. However, we remain there to continue our feeding program for severely malnourished children. More and more people are flowing into our area, and there are no other groups there to help. Your support ensures that we can continue to provide emergency care to them as long as it is needed, saving many lives.”
$1 Million Incentive Fund
Community First Foundation and FirstBank each contributed $500,000 to create a $1 Million Incentive Fund, one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country. Every nonprofit receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day receives a portion of the fund, which increases the value of every dollar donated. For example, if Global Refuge receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, Global Refuge also receives 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund.
