Give! is the Colorado Springs Independent's year-end multimedia and marketing campaign designed to generate funds, volunteers, and applause for the important work of local nonprofits. This year, Palmer Land Trust was selected as one of 40 nonprofits to participate in the 2010 Give! campaign.
Through the campaign, community members learn about and are asked to donate to nonprofits of their choice in a single, easy online transaction. Giving is made through a secure web site, and all funds are held by the Pikes Peak Community Foundation, until mid-January 2011. At that time, the nonprofit organizations are paid 100% of funds citizens donate.
A central goal of the Give! campaign is to encourage people who do not regularly give to donate time and money, with a particular emphasis on getting those in their 20s and 30s to become philanthropists.
