Colorado Gives Day: Money keeps coming for twelve nonprofits that won $5,000 prizes

Last month, we told you which of the 928 participating nonprofits raised the most money during Colorado Gives Day. This year, technical difficulties caused the 24-hour online charity blitz to be extended to 36 hours, during which folks donated a total of $12.4 million.

And last week, twelve nonprofits received $60,000 more.

Each of the twelve nonprofits received a $5,000 FirstBank High Five prize for completing one or another amazing online-charity feat. See below for the lists of winners, which are broken down by tier depending on their annual revenue.
