Help Your Neighbors in Need
You can help feed your hungry neighbors and give them the resources they need to become self-sufficient by supporting Community Table on Colorado Gives Day, Tuesday, December 4.
Across Colorado, 1 in 10 people go hungry every day, and half of these are children. Your donation can put an end to families having to decide between buying food and paying other expenses.
Your donation is in good hands at Community Table. We have a “4-Star” rating on Charity Navigator, a “Gold Seal of Transparency” on GuideStar and we are a Better Business Bureau “Accredited Charity”, which means you can trust that your donation will be used to help those in need in your community.
Don’t want to wait until December 4 to make your donation to Community Table? You can schedule your Colorado Gives Day donation today through midnight on December 4 by clicking the DONATE NOW button below and using the “CO Gives Day” option under donation frequency to schedule your donation to be counted and processed on Colorado Gives Day.
Colorado Gives Day, which began in 2010 to increase online giving, has raised more than $182 million for Colorado nonprofits. This year, Colorado Gives Day features a $1 million incentive fund, created by Community First Foundation and FirstBank. For every donation Community Table receives on Colorado Gives Day, we will receive a portion of the incentive fund!
Thank you for thinking of your neighbors in need!
Many thanks to The Foundation at Rolling Hills for choosing Community Table as the beneficiary of their annual fundraising cocktail party and golf classic. This year’s event raised more than $146,000! Our sincere appreciation also goes out to the Arvada Community Food Bank Foundation for all their support and partnership in producing the “Havana Nights” themed gala and golf tournament held this past June at The Club at Rolling Hills.
The Foundation at Rolling Hills, founded in 1999, is a nonprofit organization with the mission of raising funds for the benefit of worthy charitable causes in the local community. The Foundation is one of the few clubs in the country that supports local charities in this manner. The Foundation at Rolling Hills has raised over $2 Million since its inception primarily through the annual golf classic celebration.
Community Table has been recognized with its second consecutive 4-Star Rating from Charity Navigator for demonstrating strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency. According to Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of Charity Navigator, “The intent of our work is to provide donors with essential information to give them greater confidence in both the charitable decisions that they make and the nonprofit sector.” He continued, “Only 30% of charities evaluated by Charity Navigator have achieved at least 2 consecutive 4-Star evaluations, indicating that CT outperforms most other charities in America.” Follow this LINK to visit the Community Table page on the Charity Navigator site.
