Give a paycheck contribution through your workplace!

CJDC is proud to partner with Community Shares of Colorado in workplace giving campaigns. Making charitable donations via paycheck contributions is a convenient option that allows incremental gifts to add up over the course of a year.

A paycheck contribution of $1 a day – $5 each work week-adds up to a $260 annual donation! That would allow us to file 21 amicus briefs in support of youth appealing their cases, publish our resource center newsletter for three months, or hold a two-hour training for juvenile defense attorneys who represent Colorado youth in court.

If your company hosts workplace giving fairs and presentations, request CJDC be a featured nonprofit!
