You can view personal donations, re-send receipts, and download annual giving statements from this section of your ColoradoGives.org user account. All donors have access to a donation history through their user account.
At the top, you will see a breakdown of the total donations you have personally donated with using the email address associated to your user account. Donations that are associated to another email address will not be located here.
Underneath, you will see a list of all of your donations. You can search for a particular donation using the field ranges and search bar, or you can simply scroll down.
You can also resend receipts, access a year-end Giving Statement, or make any necessary updates to your previous donations.
Through your user account, if you are set up as an administrator for an organization, you can quickly head to your organization page through the "Managed Nonprofits" section
If you do not have a Managed Nonprofits section, the email address you are logged into is not set up as an administrator.
Underneath "Created Campaigns" any fundraisers you've created on ColoradoGives.org will be listed here. To navigate to a fundraising page, click "Manage" next to the particular campaign.
