Check out all the love from our community: $1.39 million from 9,245 donations to 72 nonprofits, and the huge Give Thanks lists to all our community partners who made it a successful year.
We are excited to share the our 2017 Community Impact report. Give! helped 75 local nonprofits raise over $1.5 million in 2017! Click the cover to view the PDF of the full report.
You’ll find all the numbers here – including the $9.6 million Give! has raised for 180 nonprofits since 2009.
It’s a community-wide effort that we couldn’t do without over 150 media and business partners, sponsors, expert trainers and volunteers. Add in over 350 matching grant donors, and nearly 10,000 donations from the public between November and December, and that adds up to a tremendous impact. Together we are making our community a better place by strengthening our diverse nonprofits that provide vital services and improve lives in the Pikes Peak region.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, including the Colorado Springs Independent, and the Colorado Springs Business Journal, 100% of donations through Give! went directly to the designated nonprofits. For every $1 invested in sponsorship and underwriting, Give! raises $10 for nonprofits.
The 75 nonprofits in the Give! Class of 2017 joined forces with Bristol Brewing Company on November 2, 2017 to officially launch this year’s campaign. Representatives from all 75 nonprofits along with Bristol owner, Mike Bristol and dozens of philanthropy minded community members joined together to make philanthropy tasty again. Opening remarks from Give! Executive Director, Barb Van Hoy, gave way to the Colorado Springs Chorale singing a robust version of “In Taberna Quando Sumus” from Carmina Burana.
The revelry continued as the first pints of this year’s Give! Black Lager were poured and passed as all toasted to inclusiveness and a successful campaign! Bristol will continue it’s incredible support of Indy Give! through December 31st by donating $3 from every pint of Give! Black Lager to the participating nonprofit of your choice. All Springs and Pueblo area Old Chicago locations are getting in on the fun too by generously giving $1 from each Give! Black Lager pint sold.
You can make an impact in YOUR community, too, by donating here. We all live here, so let’s all give here!
Last year the Give! Campaign raised over $1.5 million for 75 local nonprofits in the Pikes Peak region.

Established in 2009, Give! is a year-end multimedia marketing campaign designed to generate funds, volunteers and applause for the important work performed by Pikes Peak region nonprofits. Since its inception, Give! has helped raise over $8.1 million for 166 local nonprofits while giving them access to matching grants, media exposure and hands-on training opportunities from local and regional experts. Give makes it easy to support multiple organizations by giving to just one trusted place and the money stays in our community, to help our community.
We are excited to introduce you to this year’s class of participating nonprofits! For the last several months each participating nonprofit’s staff, board and key volunteers have been working hard to prepare so that they can get the most out of this years campaign and your support.
Please join the Give! Campaign Board of Directors in welcoming Barb Van Hoy to the Give! Campaign.
