What is Colorado Gives Day?

Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving (ColoradoGives.org).

For the ninth year, Community First Foundation and FirstBank are partnering to present Colorado Gives Day.  Please save the date and help support our school!

Colorado Gives Day will be held on Tuesday, December 4, 2018.  The $1 Million Incentive Fund created by the partners is one of the largest giving-day incentive funds in the country.  Donations can be made on ColoradoGives.org.

Donations that count towards the incentive match part of Colorado Gives Day must occur on December 4 or may be pre-scheduled starting November 1.

How to Pre-Schedule Your Donation:

To pre-schedule between November 1 and December 3, go to https://www.coloradogives.org/TheVanguardSchool/overview and under donation type, make sure to click "CO GIVES DAY."

Tax Deductible:

All donations made through on Colorado Gives Day are 100% tax deductible.  You will be automatically emailed a tax-deduction letter from the Community First Foundation.

Why You Should Give:

Because you love our school!

As a public charter school, we only receive 90% per child compared to a typical public school.  Please help us make up that difference!

Every dollar counts!  Donations of $10 and up can be made online.

Examples of What Your Donation Can Help Achieve:

$10 could purchase a new beaker for your child's science class.
$25 buys two kickballs for our gym classes.
$50 could buy as many as 10 books for an elementary classroom.
$100 buys a brick in our "Brick Campaign."
$250 helps put another Smart Board into one of our classrooms.
$500 could add a laptop to our mobile computer lab. Every dollar counts!

Have you considered becoming a reoccurring donor?

A recurring donation is a feature that allows donors to make automated, online donations to a nonprofit on a regular schedule.  Donors can set up daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly or annual recurring donations for a specific dollar amount.

Consider even $10 a month to help our school!  You can schedule your donation to start on Colorado Gives Day using ColoradoGives.org!
