To support the nonprofits that protect and nurture quality of life in Colorado
Help support iCAST this holiday season by giving a gift that keeps on giving for years to come. By donating to iCAST, you can help a family in need for years to come.
For every $100 in donations iCAST receives, we can provide a low-income, senior, or disabled family with energy efficiency improvements that will save them $80 each year in their utility bills for the next twenty years That translates to $1,600 of real savings over the lifetime of a $100 donation.
About Community First Foundation:
This opportunity to support and give back to Colorado nonprofits is made possible by Community First Foundation, a Denver-based community foundation whose mission is “to improve quality of life by increasing community generosity and involvement.” GivingFirst.org is a program of our Nonprofit Preservation Initiative, which was launched in 2004 to preserve the future of Colorado nonprofits.
Our goal is to make donating to local charities an easier and more informed experience for you. By offering comprehensive, objective and up-to-date information about nonprofits, we hope GivingFirst.org becomes indispensible for your local giving.
And by helping hundreds of organizations raise awareness online, our goal is also to provide greater support to organizations that are essential for protecting and nurturing the quality of life in Colorado.
Community First Foundation helps donors and nonprofits come together to improve quality of life in the Denver metro area. We use our resources to fund community programs, support the services of nonprofit organizations, and assist individuals with charitable giving. By monitoring the pulse of the community, we create new and innovative programs such as GivingFirst.org, an online giving resource, and Colorado Gives Day, an initiative that inspired Coloradans to donate more than $8.4 million in one day last year. We’ve been serving the region since 1975.
