Help Us Raise $25,000 for YouthBiz on Dec. 6 for Colorado Gives Day!
We need you to help us reach our goal of raising $25,000 for YouthBiz programs on Colorado Gives Day on December 6, 2011. YouthBiz has teamed up with the Community First Foundation and FirstBank to raise millions for Colorado charities over the 24 hour period.
On December 6th, Your Gift Goes Further!
Here’s how it works. 100% of your gift goes directly to YouthBiz – but wait – it gets better! Thanks to FirstBank, there is a special incentive fund that will leverage donations. The FirstBank Incentive Fund will be proportionally allocated across all donations received during Colorado Gives Day on December 6th, increasing the value of your donation. Donate Now >

Your support can help to define this change. At YouthBiz, we equip young people with technological savvy, financial literacy, future planning, college prep and an entrepreneurial foundation. Every year, 500 young leaders leave our doors empowered to rewrite the narrative for their lives and for their community.
