Support COLORADO GREYHOUND ADOPTION (CGA) on Colorado Gives Day!
On Tuesday, December 10, 2013, Coloradans will come together again attempt to raise millions of dollars for non-profits like CGA. Presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, Colorado Gives Day asks you to give to your favorite charities through their website GivingFirst.org; GivingFirst.org is an online giving resource featuring every non-profit participating in Colorado Gives Day.
On Giving First's website we share our goals, accomplishments and much more. Last year, CGA raised $6,700 in donations during Colorado Gives Day!
"I am personally very proud to be part of such an outstanding organization. Please continue to support our efforts to find forever homes for retired racing greyhounds." Excerpted from letter
by Rene Rieser, Colorado Greyhound Adoption, Vice President.
Our goal this year is to reach $10,000.
"Your donations are used to help with veterinary care, both routine and extraordinary . . . . I always get tears in my eyes as I think of the dogs that we have helped . . . tears of joy because we were able to help thanks to our generous donors." Excerpted from letter
by Rori Mattson, Colorado Greyhound Adoption, President.
100 percent of your donations will come to us when you give online any time on December 10th. CGA will use the donations collected on Colorado Gives Day to help pay for veterinary bills which came to $79,600 in 2012!
FirstBank is providing an Incentive Fund to leverage donations made on December 10th. The fund will be proportionally allocated across all donations received, increasing the value of each donation. Also, FirstBank is offering ten prizes worth $1,000 each during trivia week
. Additionally, CGA is competing for the small nonprofit media prize
offered by Colorado Public Television.
Please mark your calendars, and plan to join us on Monday, December 9th, at 11 am,
at the State Capitol Building located at 200 East Colfax, Denver, CO, for the Colorado Gives Day Rally. We will gather at the West Steps at 10:50 am.
