Colorado Gives Day – it’s the most Colorado thing since green chili and golden aspen leaves in the fall! Since 2010, Coloradans have given more than 360 million dollars online on Colorado Gives Day to the Colorado non-profit organizations they support, including Christian Living Communities. Christian Living Communities | Colorado Gives 365 .
Walking through the front doors of any CLC community, you’ll see immediately there’s something special happening. It’s community! CLC encourages and fosters relationship-building. Our communities are great because they’re made of people who care about each other and are invested in each other’s well-being – residents and team members alike.
Workforce issues are the number one concern facing senior living providers nationwide, including CLC. Retaining our team members is critical. We have a secret weapon to help us – YOU. Your support gives us flexibility to respond to the needs of the moment. This year, your gifts provided $175,000 in temporary inflation relief funds for CLC team members- much needed support during a time of increased costs of living.
Your continued support allows us to provide scholarships to team members seeking education for career advancement. It also allows team members to receive critical needs funding when facing a sudden and unexpected hardship, such as replacing a stolen catalytic converter or unplanned medical bill. Your support is the difference between a team member getting to work or not.
Exciting things you can do with your Colorado Gives Day gift:
- Give in honor of someone who cares about CLC
- Give in memory of a loved one or friend
- Designate specific funds (Resident Assistance, Employee Scholarship, Critical Needs, etc.)
- Support CLC’s greatest need with a gift to the General Mission Fund
- Designate a gift to a specific CLC community
Your gift goes further on Colorado Gives Day because of the $1.4 Million Incentive Fund, which is distributed to participating nonprofit organizations based on the donations they receive. Any gift made at Christian Living Communities | Colorado Gives 365 between today and Colorado Gives Day (December 6th) qualifies! Thank you for caring about older adults and those who support them and giving where you live.
