Give! to local charities through Dec. 31

Posted By on Sat, Dec 29, 2018 at 6:00 AM


The Indy Give! campaign is in its 10th year and has a lofty goal: raising $1.8 million for 93 local organizations that make the Pikes Peak Region a great place to live.

We know, you've been a little busy. It's easy to get caught up in the holiday rush.  But why not take a few minutes and use our easy platform to give back to your community. Here's the cool part: Give! allows to you donate to multiple organizations at once, ALL your money goes to the charities of your choice, and since many charities have matching grants, your dollars go even further.
Here's a message from  Give! Executive Director Barb Van Hoy:

More Donations Needed to Reach 2018 Give! Campaign Goal

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO — With just four days left in 2018, the Give! Campaign is appealing to the Pikes Peak region with their “Live Here Give Here” message to support 93 worthy nonprofits. Last year Give! raised $1.5 million for local nonprofits. This year’s ambitious goal is $1.8 million. We’re asking our community to step up and help us change lives by supporting these important causes

In its 10th year, Give! is raising awareness and funds for a diverse variety of local causes, from children and families, to the arts, animals, the great outdoors, veterans and more.

It’s really easy to give, and we make it fun, too. Just go to, where you’ll likely find some of your favorite nonprofits, as well as new ones you didn’t know were here. Many nonprofits have matching challenge grants that will double your donation. You can choose how much and to which groups you want to donate, and check out each group’s progress on the leaderboards. Donors help nonprofits compete for cash prizes and receive thank-you rewards from local businesses including Bristol Brewing Company, The Mining Exchange, La’au’s Taco Shop, Axe and the Oak, and many others. This year’s campaign kicked off on November 1 and ends at midnight December 31, 2018.

Give! is a year-end philanthropic initiative created to encourage everyone in the Pikes Peak Region to give back and get involved with local nonprofits, with a particular emphasis on catalyzing philanthropy from those 36 and younger. Give! is the nonprofit civic arm of the Colorado Publishing House and receives support from the Colorado Springs Independent, Colorado Springs Business Journal and the Pikes Peak Bulletin.
