Today, Tuesday, December 8 is Colorado Gives Day. ColoradoGives.org is an online giving website that supports over 1,800 local Colorado nonprofit organizations. The Community First Foundation started this site back in 2007, offering an easy year-round way to give to charities online and host fundraisers with accurate and up to date information. Since 2010, with the help of their corporate sponsor, FirstBank, they have been hosting Colorado Gives Day. All of the charities listed on the site are recognized by the IRS and Secretary of State are are in good standing.
SummitCove Lodging in Keystone has joined the Colorado Gives campaign and is giving back to 4 local Summit County charities with their 24 hour ‘ColoradoGives’ lodging sale. Each guest that books a lodging reservation on Tuesday, December 8, 2015 under the ‘ColoradoGives’ promotion code will be offered 5% off their reservation and then SummitCove Lodging will then donate 5% of the nightly revenue from that reservation to their listed charity partners. The total donation amount will be split amongst for charities: SOS Outreach, Keystone Science School, Family & Intercultural Resource Center (FIRC) and League for Animals and People of the Summit (LAPS).
This campaign is just one of many charity fundraisers that SummitCove Lodging employees will be working on this winter. The ‘2015 – 2016 SummitCove Charity Challenge’ is a friendly internal employee competition in which each department is challenged to choose at least one charity or cause to support and come up with fundraising ideas to implement throughout the winter season, raising goods, funds, and/or volunteer time for that cause. Each department will track their efforts and is incentivized with the chance to win a team lunch at the end of the ski season, going to the team with the most productive fundraising efforts.
