The Leadville Trail 100 Legacy Foundation invites our race family to support our efforts to address the ever-present needs of our community, creating a better, brighter tomorrow for Leadville, Lake County. Please join the Legacy's annual fundraising initiative by donating to us on Colorado Gives Day, December 5, 2017! 


Colorado Gives Day, presented by Colorado's Community First Foundation and FirstBank, is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy through online giving. The event is powered by, a year-round, online giving website that the Legacy Foundation is a member of. 

“The donations we receive on Colorado Gives Day help us do more to support our legendary Leadville and will ensure our commitment to continue our impact,” says Abby Long, Executive Director. “Our goal is to raise $10,000 during this campaign, which is a big part of our annual operating budget. Plus we will be thrilled to receive a match from the $1 Million Incentive Fund, furthering an individual's contribution!”

Community First Foundation and FirstBank each contributed $500,000 to create a $1 Million Incentive Fund, one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country! Every nonprofit receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day receives a portion of the fund, which increases the value of every dollar donated. For example, if the Legacy Foundation receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, the Legacy Foundation also receives 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund! Win Win!
