Another way to support RECCS Scholarship Fund

 

Colorado Gives Day is right around the corner.  What is Colorado Gives Day?  Each December Coloradans come together with the common goal to strengthen the community by helping local non-profits. Community First Foundation and FirstBank partner to make this day rewarding for givers, nonprofits, and the community as a whole.

 

Colorado Gives Day is Tuesday, December 7, and features a $1.6 million Incentive Fund. Every nonprofit receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day receives a portion of the fund, increasing impact and the value of every dollar donated. Colorado Gives Day has grown to be Colorado’s largest one-day online giving event, raising more than $300 million since it began in 2010.  Colorado Gives Day is another great way to donate to the RECCS scholarship fund.  We hope that you will consider RECCS as one of your non-profit charities on Colorado Gives Day and donate to the scholarship fund.  RECCS and our scholars appreciate all your donations.
