Donate to Support High-Impact Local Transportation Reporting on Colorado Gives Day

den_welcome

Tomorrow is Colorado Gives Day, the annual event when Coloradans donate to causes they deem worthy of their hard-earned cash.

If you value Streetsblog Denver as an irreplaceable source of news and opinion about public policy for transit, biking, and walking in the Mile High City, help us stay strong into 2018 by making a tax-deductible, year-end donation. You can also setup a recurring monthly donation — think of it as a subscription.

We’ve been asking readers to show their support a lot lately because we’re in the middle of a crucial pledge drive to double the impact of support from the Gates Family Foundation. Gates will provide a dollar-for-dollar match for each gift made between now and December 31, up to a total of $35,000. Thanks to support from our readers, we’ve raised almost $3,000 to be matched so far.

All donors still have a chance to win gifts from Great Divide, Dio Mio, and Denver Bicycle Cafe as well.

Streetsblog Denver is a small nonprofit that fills a void in the media landscape. Our work relies on the generosity of people who understand that streets have to change to move people more sustainably, safely, and equitably. If you’ve donated to Streetsblog Denver before, your continued support is essential. If this is your first time, it will make a monumental difference. Please help us produce vital reporting and commentary by giving what you can.

Whether you donate or not, you’re invited to our happy hour event — WTF Is BRT? — tonight at Our Mutual Friend Brewing Company. The event starts at 5:30 p.m. We’ll have a lively discussion on the bus rapid transit project slated for East Colfax Avenue starting at 6. Food from Little Biju’s Currey Shop is on us, beer is on you.

Thank you for donating, and thanks for reading.

Streetsblog Denver is a project of the Colorado Nonprofit Development Center. All donations are tax deductible. No donation necessary to win prizes. To enter without donating, email us your name and contact info.
