On December 9, 2014, Coloradans will come together again to raise millions of dollars for nonprofits like ours. Last year, a remarkable $15.7 million was distributed to Colorado nonprofits.
One of the greatest traditions of our nation is Scouting. With your investment, the Longs Peak Council can continue to prepare young men and women to embrace and live by a code of integrity, character, and honorable conduct – all timeless values that build strong leaders.
Consider the impact Scouting has had on the lives of over 10,000 young people in the community over the last year alone:
- Over 200 youth achieved the rank of Eagle Scout
- 9,114 traditional Scouts and their leaders contributed more than 100,000 service hours, worth over $2.2 million to our community
- 36,000 lbs. of food was collected for our local food banks
You can help support the Council’s mission by donating on Tuesday, December 9. Presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, Colorado Gives Day asks you to give to local nonprofits through the website ColoradoGives.org, an online giving resource featuring every nonprofit participating in Colorado Gives Day. In advance, please accept our heartfelt thanks on behalf of every young person who will benefit from Scouting because of your generosity. Your 2014 investment will help us continue to Prepare more Scouts for Life.
When you give online any time on December 9, the value of your donation will be increased by the
FirstBank Incentive Fund. FirstBank also waives all credit card fees for participating non-profits.
Donate online any time during the 24 hour period of December 9 to “give where you live!”
In the Memo line you can add Friends of Scouting for 2014 (payment or new donation) OR 2015. You can also designate your unit number for our Family Friends of Scouting Campaign.
