On Dec 8, the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival participated in the first-ever Colorado Gives Day, thanks to our partners at GivingFirst.org!
On this special day, Coloradans came together raised $8 million dollars for nonprofits like CDBF! (The goal was $1 million.)
The Colorado Gives Day Incentive Fund will match a portion of all donations to help continue to grow the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival as the largest pan-Asian celebration in the region!
MANY THANK-YOUS TO THE FOLKS WHO DONATED TO CDBF:
Tom W, Kip H, Fay M, Jeremy E, Ivy H, Lelanda L, Erin H, Susan O, Caroline F, Karen F, Lorens K, Shayna J, Marcia S, Patricia Q, Tom G, Neng V
GivingFirst.org is a Denver-based online resource that passes along the entire amount of donations to non-profit organizations like the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival, without charging a processing fee.
