Giving Tuesday is an international day of giving that encourages people and organizations around the world to donate time, resources, or talents to address local challenges. One of the ways you can participate in Giving Tuesday is by scheduling your donation for Colorado Gives Day, which is next Tuesday, Dec. 8.
Each year, Coloradans come together for the largest giving movement in the state to strengthen our communities by giving to local nonprofits. Join the movement by scheduling a gift to the Ute Indian Museum.
Support from donors like you will allow the Ute Indian Museum to construct a Naturescape Park. The Naturescape Park will have play and educational components for a multigenerational participation. The completed project will serve both the community and the museum and will include:
A natural playground with public access for kids and families to connect to the Native American belief of working with and respecting Mother Nature. A simulated archeological site for an educational resource to allow the museum staff the opportunity to teach about historic preservation. A story walk developed and installed by the Montrose Regional Library; and additional educational panels will provide information on Ute history, archeology, and conservation.
This unique community resource will instill early literacy skills, a renewed interest in child-led creative play, and an invitation to exercise and learn while spending time outdoors.
Please join us again for Colorado Gives Day and consider scheduling a donation now or making a donation on Tuesday, Dec. 8. Your donations to the Ute Indian Museum will support the creation of the Naturescape Park. To donate, go to www.ColoradoGives.org/UIM.
Donations of $250 or more to the Ute Indian Museum are eligible to receive 25% of the donation amount as a Colorado Enterprise Zone Tax Credit. Contact CJ Brafford at the Ute Indian Museum if you’re interested in more information, 970-249-3098.
