Why An Incentive For Donors 36 Years Or Younger?
Nonprofit organizations depend on a variety of people to make their organizations flourish. When young donors get involved with a nonprofit organization, they can have an important long-term impact, not only in helping to raise funds, but as volunteers, engaged participants, maybe ultimately as members of the board of directors. We want to encourage younger people to participate with the nonprofit community, to become lifelong partners with the nonprofits of their choosing.
How Were The Organizations Selected?
Applications are submitted to the Give! Campaign for several weeks during the spring. Our Review Committee selected from the eligible organizations that submitted applications by the deadline. To be eligible for next year’s campaign an organization should look for the announcements in the Independent, Business Journal and Pikes Peak Bulletin (typically during March) and follow the application instructions.
Can I Donate Stock?
It’s complicated but, the short answer is yes, we can accept donations of stock. Please contact the Give! campaign directly at 719-577-4545 or [email protected]
Can I Make A Donation On Someone Else’s Behalf?
Yes. The person named can be recognized via an email that is automatically generated. Please select “I would like this donation to be in memory of someone (After checkout you will have an option to send an email or download a PDF)” at checkout. You will be prompted on the next screen for more information.
Are Donations Tax Deductible?
Yes. Donors will receive an email receipt immediately after making an online donation. The Give! Campaign is recognized as a 501(c)(3) organization (Tax ID#81-2029897) and donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. If you opt to receive rewards, the total value of your tax deduction is reduced by the value of the reward, which is detailed on your donation receipt.
Will Cash Donations Be Accepted?
Cash donations can be made through the Give! Campaign office. Please roll coins or convert to dollars. Also be sure to include the name of the organization that the donation applies to and include names and ages of all donors so that we may count them in the 36 and under age group.
Who Handles The Money From The Donations?
All donations are deposited directly into a bank account overseen and managed by the Give! Campaign. The Give! Campaign will disperse the donations to the individual nonprofit organizations at the close of the fundraising campaign.
Can Donated Funds Be Used For General Operating Support?
Yes, Give! nonprofits may use donated funds for operating support, once the campaign project budget has been met.
Can My Donation Be Made Anonymously?
Yes, please specify that you would like to remain anonymous when you submit your donation.
How Will The Matching Grants Be Applied?
The matching grants are added to the nonprofits total donations after the campaign closes and the total donations received during the campaign meet or exceed the matching grant amount. Matching Grantors reserve the right to only match funds raised by an organization.
