Colorado Gives Day is coming up soon on Tuesday, December 9, and for the fifth year the John Austin Cheley Foundation is participating. COGives Day is a crowd funding event for JACF to increase the number of donors and donations, and to highlight our amazing campers as we raise money for camperships in 2015. The idea is to spread the word and activate more people to connect and donate as we strive to raise $80,000 through this campaign EVEN IF YOU DO NOT LIVE IN COLORADO.
On the COGives website, we have posted fundraising pages created by campers from each of our camps, responding to our recent contest, #channelyourinnercamp. Our campers have submitted outstanding stories about ways in which their camp experience has helped them be successful and change and grow as a person. The stories are powerful, and you can read many of them here on our posts, view great video stories, and check out our Facebook campaign.
How can you help us?:
- Send an email to at least 5 friends, family, co-workers, etc. with the suggested content below
- Follow us, like us and even post directly on our social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIN and YouTube) and help pass along more great “inner camp” stories and videos, perhaps even one of your own
- Make your COGives Day donation (separate from your Annual Campaign donation)
Be a part of the crowd of youth and camp supporters and schedule your donation anytime between now and Tuesday, December 9 for your contribution to count in the total. Many, many thanks for your help again this year, and Happy Holidays to all!

We would like to offer a HUGE thank you to everyone who donated to our cause on December 9th. On the heels of our 25th Anniversary Gala, we received over $64,000 from 114 donations in support of our mission and our amazing kids. If you missed out on COGives Day, our Annual CAMPaign continues to advance underserved youth through the camp experience.. Without you we could not do this – THANK YOU!
