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 covers one month of mailing costs for our Believe in Youth! program, which allows children to expunge their juvenile records and move forward to education and employment opportunities.

Do you have an employee giving campaign at work? If yes, please choose CJDC as the recipient of your workplace giving pledge. If your company hosts workplace giving fairs and presentations, request CJDC be a featured nonprofit! If Community Shares is not included in your giving campaign, email to discuss adding more diversity and choice to your campaign.

If you don’t have an employee giving campaign, let your HR or Community Investment contact know you want to support CJDC through Community Shares. Contact Community Shares to help you start a campaign at or 303.861.7507.
