About Give 10

quote 1WHAT IS GIVE 10?


Give 10 is a local initiative to inspire charitable connections, celebrate philanthropy and build a stronger Larimer County.

Give 10 brings together community donors, non-profit organizations and community leaders to create dialogue
on charitable giving and promote engaged giving. Great communities are giving communities. Currently, over 350 local households partner with Give 10 and are —or on their way to-- annually giving $10,000 each to Larimer County nonprofit organizations.

Created by the Fort Collins-based Bohemian Foundation, the goal of Give 10 is to strengthen the culture of giving in Larimer County and to encourage philanthropists to lead by example.

Give 10 celebrates and recognizes giving, brings donors together, strengthens nonprofits, and creates a vibrant network of philanthropy through:

  • Events hosted by Give 10 as well as Give 10 partners. 

  • Resources and tools for nonprofit organizations. 

  • Give Where You Live, a newsletter to build charitable “know-how.” 

  • Opportunities to gather, network, have fun and build Northern Colorado’s 
charitable connections. 

  • And, Give 10 Emerging Leaders, an initiative created to support donors new 
to philanthropy.

GIVE 10 EMERGING LEADERS


Give 10 Emerging Leaders cultivates the next generation of Larimer County philanthropists through a 3-year commitment to incrementally “grow” charitable giving into an annual $10,000 gift.

In the first year of participation, local donors give $5,000 to Larimer County nonprofit organizations. In year 2, donors give $7,500 and in year-3 donors increase their giving to $10,000. Once donors meet the year-3 challenge, their participation is recognized with an exclusive one-time matching gift of $10,000 awarded to a Larimer County nonprofit—or spilt between two—of their choice.

LEADING BY EXAMPLE


In this day and age, philanthropy is rarely a check-writing exercise. Charitable giving is being part of a community and for over 10 years Give 10 has strengthened the giving network of Larimer County. 

From helping donors know what questions to ask nonprofit organizations to supporting nonprofits as they develop long-lasting relationships with donors, Give 10 builds charitable connections through philanthropic stewardship.

We invite you to enroll in Give 10 and join us as we build a stronger Larimer County.
