We love that with Colorado Gives Day you can “give where you live”! There are 2 ways to partner with CFIA:

1. You’re invited to join us at Table Mountain Inn On December 9 anytime between 4-7p.m. for the Colorado Gives Day holiday celebration and expo. We will be set up with a booth there and would love to see you! Happy hour food and drinks as well as live music are a part of this evening. You will be able to make your online donation at our display table while also learning about other local non-profits and service organizations making a difference in the Golden community.

2. If you are unable to attend the Table Mountain Inn event, please consider CFIA in your end of year giving and go here to make your tax-deductible gift today and set it to withdraw from your account on December 9th. This will allow us to take advantage of the 1st Bank incentive funds that will be added to your gift.


Incentive to give on Colorado Gives Day 2014

Merry Christmas!

Community Faith in Action invites you to support our efforts in facilitating collaboration and partnership, which unifies and supports sustainable change within our community by donating to us on Colorado Gives Day, December 9, 2014.

Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. For the fifth consecutive year, Community First Foundation and FirstBank are partnering to present Colorado Gives Day.

As a participating nonprofit on, Community Faith in Action will benefit from this initiative in many ways.

“The donations we receive on Colorado Gives Day help us do more to support the community and ensure programs like the Neighborhood Rehab Project, Rocky Mountain Police Chaplaincy and the Together Church of Golden facilitation remain strong,” says Dan Thoemke, director of CFIA. “Our goal is to raise $15,000 this year toward these efforts as well as receive our share of the $1 Million Incentive Fund.”

Thanks to Community First Foundation and First Bank, Colorado Gives Day 2014, features a $1 Million Incentive Fund, one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country. Every nonprofit receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day receives a portion of the incentive fund, which increases the value of every dollar donated. For example, if Community Faith in Action receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, CFIA also receives 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund. 

Thank you in advance for partnering with us. Together, let’s reach the $15,000 mark!
