End Of Year Giving Opportunities

Scott Anderson

Every year, Colorado sees an increase in cases of child neglect and abuse. For more than 115 years, Tennyson Center for Children has been providing safety, healing, and hope to children experiencing extreme trauma from neglect and abuse. You can read a few of these children’s stories here.

None of the hope and healing our dedicated staff have provided for over a century would have been possible without the immensely generous support of our donors and volunteers!

Your tax-deductable donations will go to support Tennyson programs like Life Skills. Read about all of Tennyson’s programs.

There are many ways to support Tennyson’s kids this throughout the year, including:

  1. Donate at Tennysoncenter.org Of course you can always visit our donate page and gift a one-time or monthly donation, as well as learn about the many other ways to give such as planned gifts and volunteering!

  2. Amazon Smile + Amazon Wish List Enhance our programming by purchasing items on our Amazon Wish List. These items are used in our classrooms and cottages every day. Items range from curricular book sets to toys and towels. You can also support us year-round every time you shop on Amazon! Go to smile.amazon.com, select Tennyson Center as your favorite charitable organization, and Amazon will donate .5% of the price of eligible purchases. Every little bit helps!

  3. Personal Fundraising There are many websites that allow you to start and run a personal fundraiser and choose the charity/organization you want to support, including Facebook and ColoradoGives.

  4. GivingTuesday GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world on December 1, 2020 and every day. You can start personal fundraiser for GivingTuesday on Facebook, learn more here.

  5. Colorado Gives Day Colorado Gives Day is December 8th, 2020 and is our state’s largest day of giving. Your gift goes farther with #COGives because of the $1.5 Million Incentive Fund. You can schedule your donation ahead of time or give on the day at https://www.coloradogives.org/tennyson/.

  6. Operation Santa Operation Santa is a long-standing program at Tennyson Center dedicated to bringing the magic of Christmas to the more than 250 children and families we serve. We rely exclusively on gift donations from businesses, donors, and our local community. There are four primary ways you can get involved, learn more here.

THANK YOU to the individual donors, corporate partners, volunteers, and other organizations who have given to Tennyson throughout the years! Without you, we could not change lives and bring hope to the children we serve.
