Colorado Gives Day 2023

Colorado Gives Day is a 24-hour period of online giving and a movement to celebrate and encourage philanthropy throughout Colorado. It makes an impact on the local communities by lifting each other up and the supporting the causes that are near and dear to our hearts.

If you’re looking for an easy way to give back this holiday season, you can donate to your favorite Colorado nonprofit organizations this Colorado Gives Day. The 14th annual day of giving in the Centennial State lands on Tuesday, Dec. 5, beginning at midnight.

The day is powered by – a year-round website featuring more than 3,400 nonprofits. The program encourages people to "give where you live" and allows people to choose nonprofits that appeal to their passions. Colorado Gives Day has raised more than $415 million since its launch in 2010, including more than $70 million in 2022. This year, Delta Dental is a corporate sponsor who is matching donations. This could make a huge difference!

Credit Union of Denver is a not-for-profit and we believe in the power of People Helping People and giving back to the community. Every year we participate in various fundraising and charity drives for organizations throughout the community.
