thCommunity First Foundation has announced it has joined forces with the Yampa Valley Community Foundation to strengthen online giving in Northwest Colorado. The Yampa Valley Community Foundation will lead the effort to increase online giving in Routt and Moffat Counties through ColoradoGives.org.  ColoradoGives.org is an online giving website presented by Community First Foundation. The website provides comprehensive, up-to-date information about local charities and is an easy way for donors to support them online. The site features nearly 1,500 Colorado nonprofits and is the platform for Colorado Gives Day. Since its inception in 2007, ColoradoGives.org has raised more than $81 million for Colorado nonprofits.  The Yampa Valley Community Foundation will help develop custom pages on ColoradoGives.org specifically designed to engage nonprofits, donors and businesses located in the Yampa Valley, which includes Steamboat, Craig and Hayden. The Foundation will help train local nonprofits on how to successfully fundraise online, promote ColoradoGives.org and Colorado Gives Day through local media, special events and sponsorships.
