What is Eagle County Gives?
Eagle Gives was founded as a collaborative in 2010 for all Eagle County nonprofits that were approved to participate in the statewide Colorado Gives Day. The collaborative has expanded into a year-round effort supporting the development of the member organizations and providing a unique engagement opportunity for individuals and businesses to support the impact of member organizations.
How are donations to Eagle Gives from businesses or individuals allocated to member organizations?
The four tier funding model provides a donation to all organizations with increasing amounts directed to organizations that have served on committees, otherwise volunteered in support of this effort and had longevity of participation. The amount dispersed will vary annually based on the total amount available in the incentive fund by February 1.
