Nonprofit Opportunities


Nonprofits have the opportunity to interact with Give Next students in various ways throughout the program; including participating in Give Next Kickoff Day, hosting or making visits, providing volunteer opportunities, receiving grants, and attending award ceremonies.

Apply for a Grant

After Give Next Kickoff Day, students identify as a group, a single most important issue and develop a mission statement. In the fall, classrooms accept applications for Give Next grants from nonprofits providing services in Larimer County. Nonprofits are notified of award determinations that following spring.

There are two ways that nonprofits can apply for Give Next grants.

  1. By invitation. Once Give Next classrooms have created their mission statement, they will research and reach out to local nonprofits related to their mission. Through this process, Give Next classrooms may invite relevant nonprofits to apply for funding.
  2. Unsolicited grant application. Nonprofits providing services in Larimer County that are aligned with a Give Next classroom’s mission may apply for funding. The online application opens each year in November, listing each classroom’s mission statement. Local nonprofits are welcome to submit an application to any classroom with mission alignment.

The 2020-2021 Give Next grant application will open in November 2020.

Give Next Kickoff Day

Give Next Kickoff Day is the official start of the Give Next program year for students. Held annually in early October, it is a one day mini-conference for the Larimer County (Poudre and Thompson School Districts) middle and high school students participating in Give Next. Students hear from inspiring speakers, meet and learn from local nonprofit staff, and participate in a career/post-secondary panel.

Nonprofits can apply to represent their organization at either a booth in the nonprofit fair or presenting in a nonprofit workshop during Give Next Kickoff Day.

Students will leave the event with:

  • Greater awareness and understanding of community issues
  • Knowledge of how nonprofits and individuals work together to address these issues
  • Opportunities for service and community connections
  • Understanding of what they have to offer their community

Give Next Kickoff Day is held annually in October. To learn how to participate in Give Next Kickoff Day, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 970.221.2636.
