NEHA's Colorado Gives Campaign

Thank You for a Successful Colorado Gives Campaign

Thank you for supporting the NEHA/AAS Scholarship Program during our first Colorado Gives Day campaign. Colorado Gives Day brought in a record number of donations made to our NEHA/AAS Scholarship Fund in a single day! We are tremendously thankful for our NEHA community, your support of environmental health students and our mission to advance the environmental health professional for the purpose of providing a healthful environment for all, means the world to us.

Colorado Gives Day is more than just a day. It’s a movement that inspires and unites thousands of donors to give to their chosen organizations on a special day for increased impact. By contributing to this campaign, you sponsored those extraordinary students who would otherwise struggle to pay for housing, tuition, and fees associated with enduring their protracted programs. 

Although we did not reach our goal to raise $10,000 for the day, we did reach a new goal and break a record! We received a record high in donations for a single day toward our NEHA/AAS Scholarship Fund. Overall, we received donations from 33 donors. This included our staff, board members, members, and even a non-member. We are so appreciative of our community of supporters, joining us for our first Colroado Gives Day campaign and supporting the future students in the profession.

$1 Million Incentive Fund

Community First Foundation and FirstBank each contribute $500,000 to create a $1 Million Incentive Fund, one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country. Every nonprofit receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day receives a portion of the fund, which increases the value of every dollar donated. 

This year, Colorado Gives brought in $50,050,610 for local nonprofits on Colorado Gives Day, breaking all records and expectations. NEHA brought in 0.005% of this day's total, amounting to a match of $50.05 from the $1 Million Incentive Fund.
