In just 60 days, the 2012 Give! Campaign smashed through what we thought was an ambitious goal of raising $800,000 for 58 mostly very small nonprofits serving the Pikes Peak Region. In addition, they reaped the benefits of appearing in more than 250 TV, radio and print features, courtesy of the Colorado Springs Independent and our 22 outstanding media partners. We're chalking Give! 2012 up as a huge success, and we absolutely could not have done it without you!
Interested in participating in Give! 2013? Application information for nonprofits will be published in the Independent in early March. We encourage businesses, foundations and individuals curious about supporting the campaign to contact the Give! team via email@example.com.
Thanks for giving us your birth year. There is a special matching grant available to the organization in each category that garners the most donations from folks in their 20's and 30's. One of the big focuses of this campaign is to encourage younger citizens to become more active donors.
When Give! ends at the stroke of midnight, December 31, 2012, our goal is to have raised more than $800,0000 -- that's $100,000 more than we raised last year. To help us on our way, generous local businesses, foundations and individuals have pledged more than a quarter million dollars in Matching Grants and Friendly Competition Awards for our 58 participating nonprofits.
