Philanthropy: It's easier done than said.
Nonprofit organizations provide essential services for Coloradans, by helping in emergency situations, ensuring education for many children and adults, bringing recreation and artistic opportunities to our families, and serving our animal friends well.
The Colorado Nonprofit Association provides leadership, education and resources to nonprofits from throughout the state, publishes information about nonprofits, and works to increase generosity and philanthropy in Colorado.
