With your help, the 58 mostly very small, local nonprofits participating in the 2012 Give! campaign raised more than $980,000 via 8,000 individual donations and 183 matching and challenge grants in just 60 days.
Thanks to everyone’s effort, we smashed what we thought would be an ambitious goal to break $800,000!
Totals raised by individual groups were released in the Wednesday, Jan. 30 issue of the Independent and then celebrated that evening at an applause- and laughter-filled check ceremony at Penrose House's El Pomar Pavilion. Pictures of the event are courtesy of Cayton Photography.
We are grateful to the 22 outstanding media outlets that partnered with Give! to allow our Class of 2012 to reap the benefits of appearing in more than 250 TV, radio and print stories during November and December 2012.
All small nonprofits serving the Pikes Peak Region are encouraged to apply to participate in Give! 2013. Application information will be published in the Indy in early March.
