Foundation for Colorado Community Colleges Logo: Colorado Gives Day - December 7th: Image of diverse college graduates

On Tuesday, December 7, 2021, thousands of Coloradans will once again come together to strengthen their communities by participating in Colorado Gives Day, an annual statewide celebration that helps donors give where they live to the causes they care about most. The Foundation for Colorado Community Colleges hopes you will consider the Colorado Community College System (CCCS) and our 13 colleges if you plan to make a gift on this extraordinary day of statewide giving.

CCCS is the state’s largest system of higher education serving the fastest-growing student populations – those with limited economic resources, ethnic and racial minorities, refugees, veterans, working parents, first generation students, and others who are not well served at traditional four-year institutions. The Foundation for Colorado Community Colleges and each of the 13 college foundations support student success through raising funds for scholarships as well as supporting other important campus initiatives.

Colorado Gives Day is presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank. By creating a $1.6 Million Incentive Fund, nonprofits receiving a donation through Colorado Gives receive a portion of the fund. The opportunity for your gift to qualify for a match increases the value of every dollar donated and makes this a great day to make a gift in support of community colleges.

The Colorado Community College System and most of our 13 colleges are participating in Colorado Gives Day. You can learn more about our colleges and support their Colorado Gives Day Campaigns on the following pages:
