Great Give Day

Mark your calendar for Great Give Day 2017 on Thursday, May 11!

New & Improved Website

We have contracted with CiviCore, a reputable technology provider, to create the giving platform for Great Give Day 2017. CiviCore has thorough knowledge of giving day events and facilitates some of the most popular giving days across the country, including Colorado Gives and Amplify Austin. This new website will go live mid-January!

While no technology is failsafe, the Community Foundation has taken great care in selecting a new provider for our donors and nonprofit partners. CiviCore has a detailed contingency plan and we have every confidence the CiviCore system will work as designed. To learn more about CiviCore, please visit their website.
