Five Colorado arts nonprofits to donate to on Colorado Gives Day

Update: Due to technical difficulties at the Giving First website, Colorado Gives Day has been extended until noon tomorrow. Go ahead. Knock yourself out giving! Read on:

It's Colorado Gives Day, and since the stroke of midnight, nearly 1,000 Colorado nonprofits have been collecting donations in just about any charitable category you might think of. After a rousing kickoff last year, the fundraising marathon is not only back, but notably bigger: Pick and choose from your favorite causes at the Colorado Gives Day or Giving First websites. There are no processing fees to donate online, and for each dollar you give, an incentive fund from FirstBank kicks in a percentage.

Not sure where to send your dollars? Here's just a few of our favorites, picked from an arts-and-culture perspective.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
