STAR Institute for Sensory Processing Disorder urges for donations on Colorado Gives Day, December 6, 2016, that will go to its scholarship fund to assist families who need treatment for SPD at STAR Institute’s world renowned Treatment Center.

STAR Institute serves children, adolescents, and adults with SPD through treatment, research, education and advocacy. It is headquartered in Greenwood Village, Colorado, but serves families from around the world.

Presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, Colorado Gives Day is an annual movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy through online giving. The event is powered by ColoradoGives.org, a year-round, online giving website. Go to STAR Institute’s Colorado Gives Day webpage and make your safe and secure donation in a few easy steps. You may also schedule your gift to process on December 6, making it eligible for the incentive fund.

“The donations we receive on Colorado Gives Day help us do more to support the community and ensure families who need our services will receive them for Sensory Processing Disorder,” says Dick Layton, Director. “And each donation gives STAR Institute a larger piece of the $1 Million Incentive Fund.”

$1 Million Incentive Fund
Community First Foundation and FirstBank each contributed $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. For example, if STAR Institute receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, we also receive 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund.

Community First Foundation, a leading foundation dedicated to fueling the power of community to drive positive change, and FirstBank, Colorado’s largest locally owned bank, have partnered to present Colorado Gives Day for the past seven years. By making fundraising simple for nonprofits and giving easy for donors, Colorado Gives Day is one the most successful events of its kind in the nation. Last year, $28.5 million was raised for Colorado nonprofits in just 24 hours. Since its inception in 2010, $111 million has been donated on Colorado Gives Day.
