Season To Share – Make Your Gifts Go Further This Holiday Season

The Denver Post Season To Share Holiday Campaign is underway! We are so grateful to our generous community for helping support those who need it most. Each donation given will be matched at 50% by the McCormick Foundation. 
Through The Denver Post Season To Share, a McCormick Foundation Fund, grants are made to local nonprofit organizations making a difference for low-income children, adults and families. These qualified nonprofits provide life-changing programs that offer year-round education and mentoring; give access to healthy meals and food supplies; provide stable and affordable housing and offer access to free or low-cost dental and medical services.
Thanks to the generosity of donors and the 50% match from the McCormick Foundation, those less fortunate in our communities have a chance to improve their lives. With all expenses paid, 100% of donations, plus the match, is granted across Metro Denver.
In the 2015/16 campaign, over 4,950 donors plus the generous match by the McCormick Foundation provided $2,290,000 in grants to 49 nonprofit agencies including four new signature grants for $100,000 each.
Please make your donation in any amount and help us spread the word so we can make the 2016/17 campaign another great success for our community!
