Piñon Project backs charity day

The Piñon Project has announced its support of Colorado Gives Day 2013 – an initiative to increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving to Colorado charities.

Presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, Colorado Gives Day is a 24-hour period to “Give where you live” by making online donations to the hundreds of charities featured on Community First Foundation’s online giving resource, ColoradoGives.org. As a profiled charity on ColoradoGives.org, The Piñon Project will benefit from this initiative.

“We are excited to be part of Colorado Gives Day this year. This initiative is an opportunity for all community members to support The Piñon Project Family Resource Center in helping to strengthen the future for children and families in Southwest Colorado”, said Kellie Willis, executive director of The Piñon Project.

“Thanks to generous Coloradans and hardworking nonprofits, we’ve seen the impact of Colorado Gives Day build dramatically over the last three years in every way,” said Marla J. Williams, president and CEO of Community First Foundation. “Not only the dollars raised, but the number of nonprofits and donors contributing to the success of the day has also grown tremendously. We look forward to continuing this momentum through Colorado Gives Day 2013.”
