Colorado Gives Day 2010!
12/08/2010 - 7:00am
Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition (CCDC) is participating in Colorado Gives Day 2010!
What is Colorado Gives Day?
Colorado Gives Day is a new initiative to increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. Sponsored by Community First Foundation and First Bank, an incentive fund will be divided among nonprofit organizations that receive donations during this event.
When is Colorado Gives Day?
During the 24hour period starting at 12a.m. on Wednesday, December 8, 2010.
Why is this important to CCDC?
By making a donation to CCDC on Colorado Gives Day through the http://www.givingfirst.org/CCDC link, your donation will be increased by the incentive fund!
How is the incentive fund calculated?
At the completion of Colorado Gives Day, each proportionate share of the Incentive Fund is determined by dividing the total amount each charity raised by the total amount of donations to all participating nonprofits. This amount will then be multiplied by the total amount of dollars in the Incentive Fund. In short, the more donations that CCDC receives, the greater your donation grows!
For further information, contact CCDC Development Director, Emily vonSwearingen or at leave a message at 303.839.1775.

The Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition (CCDC), has defended and protected the rights of people with disabilities for 20 years! As the leading disability rights organization in Colorado, we provide advocacy services, training, consulting, and legal programs – all to benefit individuals and systems in the disability community. CCDC is Colorado's only statewide organization for people with all types of disabilities and is run by majority by people with disabilities. Members consist of people with disabilities and their non‐disabled allies (coworkers, employers, family members, and neighbors), working together to support disability rights. Cross‐disability means our members have all types of disabilities. We invite you to join CCDC as a member or sponsor. Thank you for your support!
