In order to be eligible for participation in the GIve! Campaign, you must meet the following requirements:

-You need to be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in good standing with the Colorado Secretary of State or operate under a fiscal sponsor that is in good standing.

-Your organization needs to be located in the Pikes Peak Region of Colorado. If you are a regional or national organization, the money raised must be used for local projects only.

-All funds raised must be used for services and projects in the Pikes Peak region, specifically in El Paso and/or Teller counties

-You need a nondiscrimination policy equivalent to Give’s Diversity and Nondiscrimination Policy. (See below) 

 

Additionally, Give Pikes Peak wants to make sure the Give! Campaign is a good fit for your organization and set you up for success. In our application, we will ask for information about your finances, organizational structure, donor base, communication infrastructure, and impact in our community. We know what it takes to be successful in the campaign, so we carefully vet our nonprofits to make sure they will be a good match for what we offer.

Before you start filling out your application, it’s helpful to read through it so you can pull together the necessary documents and information needed. If you don’t have an exact number, please provide the closest estimate possible. You can always save your progress in the application and come back to it.

For returning nonprofits, we are trying to simplify your application. However, if you have had significant changes in finances, leadership, or the scope of your work since last year, please fill out the application as a “new” organization to limit the number of follow-up questions we may have for you.
