Today is Colorado Gives Day, a day designated each year to encourage citizens in our state to donate to the local, non-profit organizations of their choice. This special day celebrates and promotes philanthropy through online giving.

There are many organizations here in our community that are worthy of our support­. For many of these groups, Colorado Gives Day 2020 will be their biggest single opportunity for fundraising.

Our community is a generous one. But how do you select the groups that you will support with a donation? A good place to start is right here in today’s Daily Camera: the Colorado Gives group pages.

Be sure your gift goes the farthest when you give to a registered non-profit (and remember, all donations to a 501(c)(3) charity are tax deductible).

The scope and scale of need in our community is unsurpassed in this moment. Today is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the act of giving—in any amount. It’s an important habit to practice all year-round, and Colorado Gives Day is an annual reminder of the positive impact we can make together.

Thank you for your generous support of our local non-profit organizations.
