Nov 1 - Dec 312013 | Indy GIVE! 2013


Giving is as much fun as this looks!

Be a Cultural Champion, get your Give! on, and support GOCA!

GOCA is proud to be part of the Indy GIVE! 2013 campaign. It's our first time and the 5th year for this campaign which runs NOVEMBER 1 - DECEMBER 31, 2013.

We are excited to announce that GOCA has been selected by a community panel as one of 59 local nonprofits. Give! is a singular end-of-year philanthropy initiative sponsored by the Colorado Springs Independent newspaper and more than 100 allied organizations.

The goals of Give! are three-fold:

  • to provide publicity and community exposure to participating local nonprofits
  • to attract new donors and volunteers to these organizations
  • to encourage everyone to give back to local nonprofits, with a particular emphasis on young adults & teens to get involved in philanthropy

Your donation to GOCA will go a long way!

Where the traditional arts institution is about connecting people with art, GOCA is about creating contemporary culture and connecting people to each other through art. We love bringing world-class culture to our region, but we need your support to do it! GOCA fundraises independently for nearly 100% of programming costs.

Donate through the INDY GIVE! Campaign today and qualify for rewards plus help us win money and in-kind support from local businesses too!  Help us reach our goal of $10,000 raised through this campaign.

Your support of GOCA goes a long way!
