Be a DAM Good Friend on Colorado Gives Day, December 9

What better way to make a gift with local impact than to contribute to the Denver Art Museum on Colorado Gives Day? Colorado Gives Day was established to unite Coloradans in the spirit of philanthropy through the support of their favorite local nonprofits. Last year, Coloradans donated an unprecedented $20.9 million dollars through their record-breaking 88,571 online donations. All within 24 hours! This year, Colorado Gives Day will take place on Tuesday, December 9.

You can demonstrate your commitment to the arts in your community by making a contribution to the DAM Good Friends Annual Fund on Colorado Gives Day. The Denver Art Museum (DAM) is a cornerstone of the Rocky Mountain Region’s cultural landscape. Help us provide world-class arts and cultural education to everyone—from children to older adults to visitors with disabilities or special-accommodation needs.

The Denver Art Museum is nationally recognized for our innovative programs, especially for families. In the past year, more than 140,000 children participated in family and school programs at the museum—many being children from low-income households who attended free of charge. Generous donations to the DAM Good Friends Annual Fund allow the museum to design and implement these engaging and elevating programs for children and families.

You can take action today! Visit the Colorado Gives Day website to schedule your donation for December 9. All donations will be supplemented by an incentive fund, and the DAM saves on credit-card processing fees through the site.

Thank you for supporting art and culture in our community through a tax-deductible gift to the Denver Art Museum on Colorado Gives Day!
