Aurora theater shooting: GivingFirst will match donations

Aurora theater shooting: GivingFirst will match donations, Community First Foundation's online giving resource for Colorado, is helping Coloradans -- such as those at last night's vigil (right) find local organizations that are dedicated to helping victims and families of the July 20 shooting -- and is matching donations up to $200,000.

"The tragedy has touched us all," says Marla Williams, the foundation's CEO. " provides a quick, secure way to find nonprofits that are assisting the victims and their families affected by this devastating occurrence -- and it allows people to donate to multiple organizations at once."
