Successful Match Campaign + Grant Approvals

By Alyssa Lile | Director of Programs

In late November, Can'd Aid was contacted by The Arc of Weld County, "an advocacy organization focused on protecting the rights of individuals with intellecual and developmental disabilities." The organization was interested in providing an up to $2,500 match for all donations to the Berthoud Adaptive Park Project in the month of December. 

Can'd Aid and Lauren Bowling, the mother of Miles, who inspired the park project, mobilized immediately to leverage this match locally. Together, we created a campaign called #BerthoudGives, offering local businesses a turnkey way to raise funds for the park both directly and indirectly. Businesses were asked to donate a portion of sales from December 3rd-10th, and we ultimately got fourteen businesses on board to participate. Amazingly, we do not yet have a total from this campaign, because many of the businesses decided to extend their fundraising efforts through the end of the year. However, we did reach our match goal of $2,500 in one day, when an individual donor was inspired by the story and donated the full amount! 

In other great news, Can'd Aid also received a $4,000 grant from the Berthoud area chapter of the Northern Colorado Community Foundation, as well as an additional $3,500 end-of-year donation from a repeat donor. Can'd Aid excited for the new year where we intend to continue working on ways to creativily fundraise and enhance our grantwriting efforts.
