The Many Ways To Give To Colorado Vincentian Volunteers
Regardless of how you choose to make a gift, remember that the Colorado Vincentian Volunteers is a registered 501(c)(3) organization. All contributions are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
“I came across the familiar story of the rich man showing off all the money he is giving and the poor woman giving everything she has. So here is what I have. CVV has given me so much and I wish I could give more and do more but I’m happy to give anything. It’s not much but I’m so happy to give it!” -M.Y., CVV Alum donor
Contributions on-line can be made by clicking on the “Donate Now” button on this page or go to www.coloradogives.org . These contributions are safe and secure.
Consider making a regular monthly gift. By spreading your payments across the course of the year, you can multiply the size of your overall donation and increase your impact for CVV.
Colorado Gives Day is an annual opportunity to give to CVV and multiply your gift. It is sponsored by the Community First Foundation and is held each year in the first week of December. Please go to www.coloradogives.org for more information.

Memorial and Honorary Gifts
Any donation you make can become a tribute gift. For birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, promotions, holidays, or in memory of someone who has died, you can honor your loved ones with a gift to CVV. Be sure to make note of it along with your check or online donation.
Your employer may match your donation to CVV. Contact your HR or payroll department about your company’s matching-gift policy; some even match gifts made by spouses or retirees. When you send us your signed form, the impact of your gift may be doubled, or even tripled.
If the stock you donate has appreciated in value from the time of your purchase, you can avoid paying future capital gains tax by donating shares directly to CVV. The full value of the shares at the time of the donation is tax deductible. Call (303) 863-8141, or email email@example.com for more information.
You can make a lasting contribution toward our mission by considering a bequest to CVV through your will or living trust. Simply include the following language in your will or trust:
I hereby give to the Trustees of Colorado Vincentian Volunteers, a Colorado charitable corporation, federal tax identification number 84-1286894, the following described property:
the sum of $__________, OR ____ percent (%) of the residue of my estate.
Call (303) 863-8141, or email Bill or Mary Frances Jaster at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Upon request, we are pleased to provide the necessary tax exemption letter to your attorney or financial advisor.
Qualified Retirement Plans
Naming CVV as a beneficiary in your qualified retirement plan (IRA, KEOGH, 401(k) or 403(b)) could result in more assets being passed to your heirs than if you make a bequest from other funds in your estate. Call (303) 863-8141, or email email@example.com for more information.
Another very easy way to continue your support of CVV is through a life insurance gift. You can purchase a life-insurance policy and bequeath it to CVV. Many people have a whole life policy that is no longer needed to protect you or your family. You can make a change in the beneficiary so that CVV receives the benefit of that policy. Call (303) 863-8141, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
CVV also accepts in-kind gifts such as Furniture, tools, food, bus passes, vehicles, office supplies etc. Please call us at 303-863-8141.
