Give Where You Live! Support MSI through

Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving to your favorite non-profit. Community First Foundation and FirstBank are partnering to present Colorado Gives Day on Tuesday, December 9, 2014. Donations are accepted through 

Why give today?

If Mountain Studies Institute receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, we will receive 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund!

The $1 Million Incentive Fund is one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country, and this year is the first year it has been offered.  You have from now until December 9th (the official day of CO Gives Day) to help Mountain Studies Institute receive 10% of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day.

Please help us develop science that people can use to address environmental issues facing the San Juan Mountains. This is your home, and ours, Give Where You Live  to enhance the beauty and integrity of the place we call home.

Your gift to us on Colorado Gives Day (or your pre-scheduled gift) increases the value of every dollar you donate with the $1 million dollar incentive fund featured this year. There has never been a better time to support Mountain Studies Institute and the San Juan Mountains!
