As followers of our apprenticeship program at our retail location, Ramble on Pearl, you are probably aware that we are owned and operated by our parent nonprofit, Boulder Treasures. Colorado Gives Day is coming up, and Boulder Treasures is excited to participate in the statewide day of giving. Can we count on you to help us reach our goal of raising $10,000 on December 4th?
WAIT, WHY DOES A STORE NEED DONATIONS?
At this stage of our growth as a social enterprise, only half of our current operating expenses are covered by gross proceeds from sales at Ramble on Pearl. We still rely on your donations to keep the lights on and our apprenticeship program up and running.
WHAT IS COLORADO GIVES?
Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving on December 4, 2018. It includes a $1 Million Incentive Fund provided by Community First Foundation and FirstBank. When you schedule a donation for Dec 4th, it will be partially matched by this fund.
HOW CAN I SUPPORT?
You can extend your support for Boulder Treasures by scheduling a donation on Colorado Gives Day. That’s right- you don’t even need to remember to do this later! Select “CO Gives Day” as your donation type and you’ll be all set for Dec 4.
WHAT IF I DON’T LIVE IN COLORADO?
Greetings, friends and supporters from afar! Have no fear, Colorado Gives is open to non-Coloradans as well. Click here to schedule a donation for your favorite Centennial State nonprofit.
WHAT WAS YOUR GOAL AGAIN?
So glad you asked! We’re hoping to raise $10,000 to support the vital work we are doing in creating pathways to employment for adults with developmental disabilities across Boulder and Broomfield Counties. Will you join us?
