Colorado Gives Day

BIT is participating in Colorado Gives Day on Tuesday, December 4! This giving movement is a chance to increase the value of your donation, thanks to the $1 Million Incentive Fund. Created by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, the fund increases the value of every dollar donated proportionally.
