Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. Community First Foundation and FirstBank are partnering to present Colorado Gives Day on Tuesday, December 8, 2015. Colorado Gives Day features a $1 Million Incentive Fund and every nonprofit receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day receives a portion of the incentive fund, which increases the value of every dollar you give.
In 2015, the Nathan Yip Foundation partnered with nine 501(c)3 organizations that empower vulnerable youth through education, six are right here in Colorado. Colorado-based Reading Partners Colorado, George Washington High School Patriot Pairs Mentors and Forward Steps all benefit students here in our home state. Edge of Seven is building schools in earthquake-ravaged Nepal; Funzeleo is providing STEM education in Tanzania, and S.O.U.L. Foundation is sponsoring primary and secondary students in Uganda.
In addition, NYF provided a grant to Wings of Hope to build a library in Cambodia; a grant to Working Boys Center to create and implement a technical education curriculum in Ecuador; and a grant to Heshima Kenya to have refugee girls and young women participate in the Girls’ Empowerment Program in Nairobi, Kenya.
