At Summer Celebration, we celebrated our connected community, the generosity of those who give with us, and the empowerment of investing together in a community of organizations that value inclusivity, diversity, and driving social change.
Community Shares had a banner year, raising more than $4 million for nonprofits throughout the state of Colorado. One dollar at a time, one donor at a time, we have more than doubled our impact in the community over the last five years.
Thank you for celebrating with us! We look forward to another year of connecting, giving together, and empowering each other to create positive change in our community.
Thank you to our generous sponsors who made this event possible!
There's still time to support Community Shares!

Inspired Philanthropy Throughout Colorado
Community Shares is Colorado's Community Giving Fund. We have been broadening charitable choice in workplace giving campaigns in Colorado for 30 years. One dollar at a time, one donor at a time, we have collected more than $30 million for local investment in Colorado nonprofits.
The definition of the word “philanthropist” is fairly simple: One who actively promotes human well-being. However, when we hear the word “philanthropist” our minds often jump to the most extreme examples; we think of black and white photos of the Vanderbilts and Rockefellers, the names that grace our buildings, theaters and streets, and the new generation of billion dollar givers.
Why do we look outside ourselves to define something we each do every day? At Community Shares, we encourage you to see yourself as an “everyday philanthropist.”
As our diverse and inclusive community of donors display, philanthropists don't just exist in black and white photos and memories; philanthropists live in bold colors in our vital and vibrant community.
Community Shares is able to put more dollars in the hands of front-line nonprofits thanks to donors like you. For every $1 you give, we generate $15 in community giving to nonprofits.
