Colorado (you) Gives!

Posted by on Dec 09 2014 | Purely Personal

Today is Colorado Gives Day. Great charities in Colorado will be asking you to give because giving today gets leveraged by the Colorado Gives Foundation, and credit card fees are waived as well. This makes it a great day for end-of-year gifts in Colorado.

But the greatest gift you can give to our state is Liberty. From Freedom and Free Enterprise, all other gifts come.

And there is only one organization out of the 1,500 participating in Colorado Gives Day whose mission is to fight to free Coloradans from the overreach of government. In fact, many of the groups participating today actively work for the Left, working against Free Markets. The money they raise today gets matched proportionally by the million-dollar Colorado Gives Fund.

So investing in the Independence Institute today not only counters that, but it means your investment in Freedom goes even further. But you have to give today for that proportional match.

Please take a moment right now (yes, please stop what you are doing for just a minute right now) and help us fight for a freer Colorado.

Thank you so very much!

Help Make This Person Cry

Posted by on Dec 03 2014 | Purely Personal

An incredible tradition has taken hold in Colorado-Colorado Gives Day, a day when gifts to the state’s charities get a boost. And while most of the charities funded by Colorado Gives Day do overwhelmingly spectacular work, I can’t help but notice how much of the Left’s political infrastructure benefits from it, too.

While perusing the charities on the Colorado Gives website, you’ll find a myriad of liberal causes in which to invest. Here are just a few: Colorado Center on Law and Policy, Common Cause, Ethics Watch, Colorado Fiscal Institute, League of Woman Voters, NARAL, Progress Now, Open Media, PFLAG, Rights for all People, 9 to 5 Colorado,  Chinook Fund, Citizens Project, Colorado Center on Law and Policy, Colorado Children’s Campaign, Colorado Immigration Rights Coalition, Colorado Progressive Coalition, Greater Education Colorado, New Era Colorado, Planned Parenthood, The Bell Policy Center, Alliance for Sustainable Colorado, and many more.

Out of the over 1,600 charities, there is only one organization whose mission is to reduce government bullying and overreach.

No surprise. It’s us.

The Independence Institute is the only free-market, limited government charity on the ColoradoGives.org website. And next Tuesday, December 9 (Colorado Gives Day), is going to be more important than ever because of a new $1 million Incentive Fund. This fund, one of the largest giving-day incentive funds in the country, proportionally increases the value of every dollar donated. For example, if Independence receives 10% of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, we receive 10% of the $1 Million Incentive Fund.

As you can tell, the cards are stacked against us and in favor of the machinery of the Left. (Shocking, huh?) It’s up to you whether this extra funding goes towards the Left’s already well-funded grasp over Colorado or towards the only group in the bunch to fight for Liberty.

Last year, we raised over $12,000 on Colorado Gives Day. Next Tuesday, would you PLEASE go to ColoradoGives.org and help us break that number?

Remember, with every dollar invested with us, a smug liberal cries. And isn’t that what charitable giving is really all about?
