DENVER — Dec. 2, 2016 — Wazee Digital is joining Colorado’s largest giving day movement by participating in the Colorado Gives Day Corporate Challenge, presented by the Denver Business Journal. The Corporate Challenge is an initiative to involve local businesses and their employees in charitable giving by donating to local nonprofits.
Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. For the eighth year, Community First Foundation and FirstBank encourage Coloradans to “Give Where You Live” on Tuesday, Dec. 6, by donating to local nonprofits on ColoradoGives.org.
The Colorado Gives Day Corporate Challenge provides a specific opportunity for Colorado businesses to encourage their employees to take an active role in supporting local nonprofits. Participating businesses “challenge” employees to give with a goal of achieving 100 percent participation.
“Nonprofits are the glue that holds our society together,” says Sheri Dethlefs, senior director, business affairs and secretary, Wazee Digital. “Participation in the Colorado Gives Day Corporate Challenge is a wonderful way to support these organizations and a great way to encourage a philanthropic spirit among our staff.”
“We are pleased with the support we are receiving from local businesses like Wazee Digital,” said Dana Rinderknecht, director of online giving, Community First Foundation. “By participating in the Corporate Challenge, they are demonstrating good corporate citizenship.”
