Colorado Gives Day brings together thousands of Coloradans just like you to make a difference in our community by raising funds for local non-profits.

Since 2010, the first Tuesday of December has been a day of giving, with more than $362 million raised for nonprofits across the state to date. To sweeten the deal, there’s a $1.6 Million Incentive Fund available this year to boost the value of every single donation.

Here’s how it works. If a nonprofit organization receives 10% of the total amount of money raised on Colorado Gives Day, that same nonprofit receives 10% of the $1.6 Million Incentive Fund.

More donations for The Pantry on Colorado Gives Day means more of the $1.6 Million Incentive Fund The Pantry will receive.

Donate now and make an impact along with thousands of other Coloradans!

10th Anniversary Celebration: Tuesday, September 27, 2022

We gathered to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Hope Pantry. With 10 years of service comes change and growth. The Pantry has expanded into a new space on Pearl Street and a ceremonious ribbon cutting by City Councilwoman, Lauren Folkerts, marked the event. John Tayer, President of the Boulder Chamber of Commerce was our vibrant emcee, keeping the spotlight on our beloved volunteers at this lively event. Arden Hooper, for whom the pantry is named, was in attendance as well.

The celebration continued with Donna Barela receiving the President’s Volunteer Service Award in the category of Lifetime Achievement for donating over 4,000 hours of her time at the Pantry. It is a pleasure to see Donna and her husband Dan who both volunteer several times a week. Donna’s valuable contributions in accounting and fundraising have made a tremendous impact. She is an absolute delight to have in the office and we love her sense of humor!
