Announcing the Give! Class of 2018
The Give! Campaign has selected 96 worthy local causes to be featured in the 2018 Give! Guide and on indygivestage.wpengine.com. It’s the largest selection ever for this year-end campaign, established to make it easy and fun for local residents to learn about, get involved with, and give back to causes they care about. This year’s list includes organizations making a difference across the spectrum, from supporting veterans, the arts, health and human services, the great outdoors, animals, youth and more. Twenty-five are new to the Give! Campaign. Selected nonprofits will be featured November 1, through December 31, 2018 in the Give! Guide, published in the Colorado Springs Independent and the Colorado Springs Business Journal, and here on indygivestage.wpengine.com, where it's easy for people to learn about and donate to multiple organizations in one place during the campaign. Since 2009 Give! has raised over $9.6 million for 180 local nonprofits. Last year Give! raised over $1.5 million for 75 nonprofits in El Paso and Teller Counties. Give!’s focus is on catalyzing philanthropy among those 36 and younger, and helping smaller and less well-known organizations gain skills, get their message out and raise unrestricted funds. Local nonprofits apply each year to participate in Give! and they are carefully vetted to insure each is a sold investment for donors. The campaign then provides valuable nonprofit skills training, exposure through TV, radio and print media partners, and featured space in the Give Guide on indygivestage.wpengine.com.

Campaign is powered by the Colorado Springs Independent and the Colorado Springs Business Journal, along with other generous sponsors, and serves El Paso and Teller counties, Colorado's Pikes Peak region.
