Join thousands of Coloradans on Colorado Gives Day to Give Where YOU Live!
Presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, Colorado Gives Day is a 24-hour period to “Give where you live” by making online donations to the hundreds of charities featured on Community First Foundation’s online giving resource, ColoradoGives.org.
The South Suburban Park Foundation needs your financial support this year to continue constructing trails and greenways for south metro communities. We need funding to promote the trails; increase visitors; provide habitat education; and, communicate safe trail tips for all users.
Our goal is to raise funds so we can continue providing trail and greenway construction as well as community outreach programs in our South Metro communities. Contribute on Colorado Gives Day by clicking the “donate now” button on the right side of our website.
Last year, contributions from the Colorado Gives Day supported development of our new website, increased the opportunity to leverage funds for trail construction, and assisted in the funding of our free newsletters, trail maps, and communication pieces. All of these projects were needed to move forward regional trail projects within our community.
The South Suburban Park Foundation led the efforts to complete Phase II of the Centennial Trail from Colorado Boulevard to Lenski School at S. Fairfax Way which included a 10′-wide crusher fine path and the installation of a new “HAWK” pedestrian-activated crossing at South Holly and South Forest Way. Phase III will improve the trail reach through Georgetown Village with two new pedestrian spans and trail enhancements.
And, Phase I of the Littleton Community Trail is under construction through Slaughterhouse Gulch Park from Prentice Avenue to South Crocker Street; and from Ridge Road to the Lee Gulch Trail at Lower Ridgewood Park near West Euclid Street. This trail segment will include a 10′-wide multi-use crusher fine pathway.

“Thanks to generous Coloradans and hardworking nonprofits, we’ve seen the impact of Colorado Gives Day build dramatically over the last three years in every way,” said Marla J. Williams, president and CEO of Community First Foundation. “Not only the dollars raised, but the number of nonprofits and donors contributing to the success of the day has also grown tremendously. We look forward to continuing this momentum through Colorado Gives Day 2013.”
We hope you will participate!
