Support OLT in the spirit of Colorado Gives Day from now until December 9th when your gift to OLT will be matched proportionally. Colorado Gives Day is more than a day of giving, it’s a movement that inspires and unites thousands of donors to support their favorite causes online through This year, Colorado Gives is partnering with FirstBank to offer a $1 million Incentive Fund boosting every donation received online for December 9th. This means your donation goes farther on this one day!

Community First Foundation, an Arvada-based foundation dedicated to increasing community generosity, and FirstBank, Colorado’s largest locally-owned bank, are sponsoring the fifth consecutive Colorado Gives Day, an initiative to increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. OLT donors are encouraged to please join this statewide online giving movement. You can go online now and indicate you want your gift processed / matched on December 9th. This is one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country and your gift will be matched proportionally if you select that option.

The incentive fund proportionally increases the value of every dollar donated. For example, if a nonprofit organization receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day from some 1500 nonprofits participating, that same nonprofit receives 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund. The 2014 Incentive Fund is 300 percent larger than last year.

OLT’s profile is now live at Any OLT donation made online for Colorado Gives Day will count toward your membership benefits and greatly help OLT with the proportional matching. For any questions, please call Pam Nelson, Director of Development at 719-298-2289.
