Individuals, families and businesses partner with us in a variety of ways to support causes that matter to them. By establishing a donor-advised fund at Community First Foundation, highly engaged donors can enjoy the giving process without the administrative burdens. With our expertise and extensive connections in the region, we can provide support and resources for a satisfying charitable plan.
Also this year we received the single largest gift ever donated on a Colorado Gives Day when the Schlessman Family YMCA received a surprise bequest of $1 million from longtime supporter Arlene Seaton.
Largest single donation
Colorado Gives Day is one of the most successful events of its kind. FirstBank contributed $100,000 in cash prizes to build excitement and 16 businesses joined the Corporate Challenge, bringing in more than $500,000 from their employees. The giving day would not be a success without the support of our media sponsors: The Networks of 9NEWS, Univision, Comcast, Denver Business Journal, Rocky Mountain PBS, Colorado Public Television (CPT12, PBS), iHeartMedia, Mile High Outdoor Advertising and 5280 Magazine.

When Community First Foundation envisioned its new office building in Olde Town Arvada, we included a spacious meeting area to deliver on our priorities to strengthen nonprofits, build strong community and honor our heritage in Jefferson County. Offered free of charge, the new space was designed specifically for the needs of nonprofits. A variety of rooms, robust A/V capabilities and a commercial catering kitchen help nonprofits put their best foot forward for trainings, meetings and retreats.
