    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Edwards, CO (11/26/2013) – Can Do Multiple Sclerosis announces its support of Colorado Gives Day 2013– an initiative to increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving to Colorado charities. Presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank,Colorado Gives Day is a 24-hour period to “Give where you live” by making online donations to the hundreds of charities featured on Community First Foundation’s online giving resource, ColoradoGives.org. As a profiled charity on ColoradoGives.org, Can Do MS will benefit from this initiative.

    Can Do MS receives 100% of donations received through GivingFirst.org because the Foundation covers credit card and processing fees. In addition, a special incentive fund has been created to increase the value of donations received on Colorado Gives Day, so each and every dollar that is raised for Can Do MS results in an incentive gift from the Foundation and its partners. This is a great way to make donations go further.

    “Thanks to generous Coloradans and hardworking nonprofits, we’ve seen the impact of Colorado Gives Day build dramatically over the last three years in every way,” said Marla J. Williams, president and CEO of Community First Foundation. “Not only the dollars raised, but the number of nonprofits and donors contributing to the success of the day has also grown tremendously. We look forward to continuing this momentum through Colorado Gives Day 2013.”
