Charitable Giving – Colorado Gives Day

Today is Colorado Gives Day, an initiative put on by the Community First Foundation every year to help benefit participating Colorado nonprofits (over 1,800 at last count).

We are proud to contribute as a firm during the state’s largest single-day giving initiative and hope you find a way to do so as well.
