is just one of 1,800 worthy nonprofits that greatly benefit from Colorado Gives Day, an annual statewide effort to increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. The 7-year-old program is administered through Community First Foundation and FirstBank. The mantra: “Give Where You Live.”

CGD logo 600Colorado Gives Day raised $28.4 million in 2015. Since its inception in 2010, the event has raised more than $111 million for Colorado nonprofits.

This year, Colorado Gives Day falls on Tuesday, Dec. 6 – but donors can schedule donations for their favorite nonprofits in advance.

Because it can be a bit overwhelming for givers to sort through 1,800 worthy organizations, we have compiled a list that should be handy for givers with a particular interest in live theatre: Direct links to the giving pages for all 40 local theatre organizations that are eligible to participate in this year’s Colorado Gives Day.

Like what you see? Click and give. (Look for the CO GIVES DAY button.) You also can choose to set up monthly donations of any amount if you feel so compelled.

To sweeten the pot (literally), Colorado Gives Day features a $1 Million Incentive Fund. Every nonprofit receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day receives a portion of this fund, which increases the value of every dollar donated. Questions? Click here
