 When: Thursday, October 21, 2021 12:00 AM

On October 21, 2021, join Junior Achievement of Southern Colorado as we celebrate our 3rd Annual Day of Giving VIRTUAL fundraising event!

#OneDayForJA is an opportunity for educators, volunteers, partners, and individual investors to virtually rally together for 24 hours to inspire students to dream big and reach their full potential by sharing your personal JA stories!

Participating in the Day of Giving and spreading the word about JA’s mission will provide the building blocks for the next generation’s success, increase our reach to more classrooms throughout Greater Colorado, and help us close the programming gap that is preventing students from meeting their future mentors, who will give them the power to change their word. A gift of any size is greatly appreciated and will have a huge impact on the lives of students in Colorado.
