The Bridge Project strives to help children and youth living in Denver's public housing neighborhoods to achieve their academic potential and graduate from high school with the resources necessary to succeed as adults.
colorado gives day - TUESDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2014
For the fifth year, Community First Foundation and FirstBank are partnering to present Colorado Gives Day on Tuesday, December 9, 2014. Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. And for the first time ever, it features a $1 Million Incentive Fund created by the partners, one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country.
When: 24 hours starting at 12 a.m. on Tuesday, December 9, 2014
How: Donate online or schedule your donation in advance (starting November 2014).
Why: Children who grow up in Denver's public housing neighborhoods begin their lives with a significant deficit in early academic opportunities and academic support both inside and outside of the home. The Bridge Project has found a lack of an academic environment at home, modest parental expectations about school performance and low levels of neighborhood support in the Bridge Project neighborhoods. Currently, the Bridge Project is seeking:
- New books for children in Kindergarten through 12th grades.
- Funding for the new STEM program across four sites.
- Volunteer tutors - one hour per week for the academic year.
On behalf of the Bridge Project Advisory Board and our children, youth and families, we are grateful for your support and dedication to making the Denver community a stronger place.

Each year every child receives a new book for the holidays. In order to provide each of our 500 participants with a book, we are asking the Denver community to help collect books. Please consider donating a new, unwrapped book to this cause. Monetary donations will also be accepted. All contributions are tax-deductible and can be made to The Bridge Project. If your organization would like to participate please contact Kate Arnold at 303-446-0139 or Kate.Arnold@du.edu. The Bridge Project will drop off a box for collection and a list of suggested titles.
