Cause Area Cohorts

At Community Shares, we have identified eight cause areas reflecting the diversity of Coloradans and our shared interest in building a more vital and vibrant state. As a new member organization and with every yearly recertification, each organization selects the Cause Area to which they most feel they belong.

These cohorts are quarterly opportunities to connect with other members working toward similar goals and missions. Four times a year, we will meet to how e can better support organizations with your unique challenges and aspirations.

Cause Area Cohorts for May and June are currently ongoing. Visit the Community Shares Member Dropbox to learn more and register!

  • Add those donors to your collateral mailing lists.

July and August 

  • Send an outreach piece (e.g., email, postcards) to your past and current workplace giving donors including a thank you and encouragement to designate to give again.
  • Publish an article in your newsletter about workplace giving.
  • Remind your supporters to request your nonprofit for fairs and speaking engagements.

September - December

  • Be ready to attend a fair (fill out the In-Person Fair Interest Form to let us know your capacity!)
  • Push out information about the campaigns on your social media sites.
