Colorado Gives Day is Tuesday, December 5th.

By Kelly Craugh

Colorado’s annual celebration of philanthropy brings together thousands of donors, who give collectively on one day to make a huge impact in our state. Last year, 52,982 people made financial contributions to 2,104 Colorado non-profit organizations – and together, they contributed nearly $34 million!

Colorado Gives Day is powered by, a year-round website that is focused on increasing philanthropy in Colorado. Thanks to, you can make an online gift to Scholars Unlimited — and more than 2,200 other non-profit organizations – 24 hours a day, any day of the year.

Again this year, there will be a $1 million incentive fund for Colorado Gives Day, thanks to FirstBank and the Community First Foundation. Every organization receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day also receives a proportional amount from the incentive fund, which increase the value of every dollar given on that day.

We hope you’ll be a part of Colorado’s annual day of philanthropy – and we hope you’ll include Scholars Unlimited in your giving!

You can even schedule your gift now, to occur on December 5th, in order to leverage the incentive fund. Just head to the Scholars Unlimited giving page, located here:

Then, click on the “Donate” button … enter your gift amount … click the “CO Gives Day” button … and check out.  Your gift will be processed on Colorado Gives Day, and boosted by the incentive fund.

If you have questions or need assistance, please contact Coleen Truax at or 303-381-3746.

And as always, THANK YOU for supporting Scholars Unlimited – on Colorado Gives Day and throughout the year.  Your contributions truly make a difference in the lives of the at-risk young learners we serve.
