Colorado’s largest one-day online giving event, presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, is coming up and we need your support.
On Tuesday, December 9, 2014, thousands of donors will come together to support Colorado nonprofits like ours. Last year, a record-breaking $20.9 million was distributed to Colorado nonprofits.
Colorado Gives Day is powered by ColoradoGives.org, a year-round website featuring nearly 1,500 nonprofits. ColoradoGives.org encourages charitable giving by providing comprehensive, objective and up-to-date information about Colorado nonprofits and an easy way to support them online.
Thanks to Community First Foundation and First Bank, Colorado Gives Day features a $1 Million Incentive Fund, one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country. Every nonprofit receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day receives a portion of the Incentive Fund, which increases the value of every dollar donated.
Check out our donation page on ColoradoGives.org visit https://www.coloradogives.org/CSPC/overview Give where you live on Colorado Gives Day. Your support helps us continue providing equitable educational opportunities for all children and their families. Beginning November 1, 2014, donations can be scheduled ahead of time.
With this program parents learn how to utilize their home environments and every day activities to enhance their child’s learning. In the small samples of the children whose parents participated in the program and who have implemented the learning strategies at home, these children have maintained and/or have surpassed some of the Kindergarten Bench Marks.
The purpose of the Providers Advancing School Outcomes (PASO) training program is to create an equitable, replicable, community based model program for providing professional development in early childhood education to Latino, Family, Friend and Neighbor (FFN) providers to: promote school readiness to Latino children, birth to 5 years old, and to prevent the achievement gap between Latino and non-Latino children before they enter Kindergarten.
Schools cannot raise student achievement on their own. To do so, they must build a culture of engagement for parents. This Program strengthens schools’ family engagement approaches and practices through coaching, technical assistance, and program implementation.
