Dear Friends:
Andrew Hudson


Here at the southern edge of Cherry Creek Reservoir, we regularly take Julia, my soon-to-be five-year-old daughter and Mateo, my two-year-old son, for a stroll around the reservoir's path. This time of year, Mother Nature’s seasonal clock is on full display as the trees are bare and, other than the geese, most of the birds have migrated south.  We still see wandering coyotes, prairie dogs and the occasional deer, but our neighborhood foxes make only rare appearances as they have disappeared into their warm dens as the frosty chill of winter settles in.

On even the coldest days, it is a treat and an adventure to bundle up the kids with layers of sweaters, coats, hats, gloves, socks and boots and chase each other in the snow-filled park knowing there’s always a fireplace, hot chocolate and a warm blanket waiting back at the house for us.

Explaining to a curious two-year-old about the hibernation habits of bears and foxes and the migration patterns of birds begs the question as to what comes out during the cold months of winter?

One important thing that awakens during the weeks leading up to the holidays is the call to charity. 

It’s a natural connection.  I know for me and for many others, the layers of warmth and protection we enjoy during the winter is also a contrast to the harsh reality of those who are struggling: the poor, the homeless, the hungry, the sick, the unemployed, those who are facing personal loss and other fears and worries.  This time of year, more than any other time, invites us—almost insists—that we not only recognize the difficulties of others, but also respond to that very loud call to action to do something about it.

Our community's nonprofit organizations provide services and assistance to those who need hope in their lives the most. They are the on the front lines to provide everything from shelter and a warm bed for those who need it, affordable health care for those who can't afford it, senior services, job training and education, after-school programs, meals for those who are hungry and much, much more.

But it is an anxious time - terrifying, actually - for charitable nonprofit organizations.

Every day, nonprofits are getting the bad news that funding streams they have relied on for important programs are being cut.  While the economy has improved, the contributions and donations from have not yet caught up from the recession. Donors whose investments help fund their philanthropic giving, are still hurting and government grants have been pared down. If many members of Congress have their way, they will dissolve many of the important government aid programs that help to fund the important work of local nonprofits. Once-generous corporations are also faced with dwindling revenues and have shifted their philanthropic giving strategies and have reeled in even relatively small commitments for event sponsorships and table purchases at fundraising breakfasts and dinners.

And while cuts in funding to nonprofits are unprecedented, ironically we see regular INCREASES in demand for these important services.

This 'catch 22' situation nonprofits find themselves in is frustrating to say the least.
 
And yet, the committed professionals and volunteers march on, creating new donation strategies and stretching their limited dollars with new efficiencies most companies would envy. They are looking under every rock for new revenue streams to help fund their programs that are needed now, more than ever. 

One of the phenomenon of hard times is that individuals tend to donate more to charity during a recession. Perhaps it's a greater empathy or perhaps there's a more defined need. Whatever the case, now—more than ever—your individual donation can help.

This year, as we sit down with our families and friends to celebrate another year of blessings and begin to prepare ourselves for new beginnings, I encourage you to give thanks through a contribution to one of the more than 20,000 nonprofit organizations in Colorado.  Ask your friends, your family or your company to match your donation. If you can't give, discover a way to volunteer at a local nonprofit.  These charities are the lifeblood of our communities and their committed and compassionate staffs and volunteers are on the front lines of solving some our communities most difficult challenges. Colorado Gives Day which is coming up on December 9. On this one day, Coloradans are encouraged to support the nonprofits that are closest to their hearts. To find out more and to donate, click here.

As you may have seen, over the past week, I've been profiling many of the nonprofits who are accepting donations on Colorado Gives Day.  Today, I encourage you to visit www.cogivesday.org and search for a nonprofit you care about and consider making a donation. You can schedule your donation in advance; it won't be charged until December 9, the actual Colorado Gives Day.

Community First Foundation and FirstBank have partnered to present Colorado Gives Day since 2010. In addition to raising money, Colorado Gives Day raises awareness of the state’s nonprofit sector, unites Coloradans in a common goal to strengthen the state’s nonprofits, and educates communities on the benefits of online giving by making fundraising simple for nonprofits and easy for donors. To date, the program has distributed $58.1 million to Colorado nonprofits ($8.7 million in 2010, $12.8 million in 2011, $15.7 million in 2012 and $20.9 million in 2013). Colorado Gives Day is one of the most successful events of its kind in the nation.

To make a donation, go to GivingFirst.org and search for a charity in one or more of the following ways:

1) Enter an organization’s name or a topic in the “Keywords or Charity Name” field,

2) Select a cause or topic, or

3) Enter a city or zip code.

Then press “Go” or the enter key.

When you are in an organization’s profile, press the “Donate Now to this Charity” button and enter the donation information as directed.

Go to www.cogivesday.org for more information and to donate.
