Colorado Gives Day

What is Colorado Gives Day?

Colorado Gives Day unites all Coloradans in a common goal to strengthen the state’s nonprofits by giving to their favorite charities online.

Coloradans are encouraged to join the statewide Colorado Gives Day movement by supporting their favorite causes online through ColoradoGives.org. Give Where You Live on Colorado Gives Day, December 7, 2021.

What is the $1 Million Incentive Fund?

Every donation made through ColoradoGives.org on Colorado Gives Day is boosted by the incentive fund. For example, if a nonprofit organization receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, that same nonprofit receives 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund.

Why donate to Greenwood?

This year, we cared for ~20% more animals than years prior. This significant increase is largely due to the unfortunate shutdown of Wild Bird Rescue in the Denver area.

The wildlife on the Front Range need our services and depend on us to provide food, shelter, and enrichment while they recover, grow, and thrive. YOU can help us change wild lives that just need a second chance.

What does your donation help Greenwood do?

$10 pays for one animal’s radiograph
$50 buys 11lbs. of small fish for diving waterbirds
$1,000 helps us buy mealworms for one month
