Support Us on Colorado Gives Day!
On Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2012, Coloradans will come together again to raise millions of dollars for nonprofits like ours. Last year, a remarkable $12.8 million was distributed to Colorado nonprofits. This is THFC's first year participating Colorado Gives Day, and it comes at a critical time, when for the first time in our history, we are faced with the possibility of turning away clients due to lack of funds.
Presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, Colorado Gives Day asks you to give to your favorite charities through the website GivingFirst.org, an online giving resource featuring every nonprofit participating in Colorado Gives Day. On this website we share our goals, accomplishments and much more.
100 percent of your donation will come to us. When you give online any time on December 4, the value of your donation will be increased by the FirstBank Incentive Fund.
Donate online at https://www.givingfirst.org/THFC/overview any time during the 24 hour period of December 4 to "give where you live" and let us continue to help Colorado service members, veterans and military families throughout the Centennial State.
