The Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra (GJSO) invites Coloradans to support our efforts to engage and enrich our community through symphonic music 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. Donations are accepted through ColoradoGives.org/GJSO.
“The donations we receive on Colorado Gives Day will help us do more to support the community and ensure we can continue to provide our exceptional educational programs and concerts, says Kelly Anderson, GJSO Executive Director. “Our goal is to raise $10,000 this year, which is a big part of our annual operating budget. We also want to get our share of the $1 Million Incentive Fund!”
$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 the GJSO receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, the GJSO also receives 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund.
“Thanks to generous Coloradans and hardworking nonprofits, we’ve seen the impact of Colorado Gives Day build dramatically over the last four years in every way,” said Marla J. Williams, president and CEO of Community First Foundation. “Not only the dollars raised, but the number of nonprofits and donors contributing to the success of the day has also grown tremendously. We look forward to continuing the momentum this year.”
