Telluride Rentals is very proud to donate $2,400 towards a new community initiative called ‘Telluride Gives’. From Thanksgiving through December 1st, we pledged to donate 3% of our rental income to this amazing cause. At a time of year when there is so much media frenzy on buying things, we wanted to shift that focus to a spirit of giving. Telluride Gives is organized through the Telluride Foundation, a local non-profit organization that raises funds and awareness for many causes in our local Telluride community.

This recent Telluride Foundation Press Release summarizes the Telluride Gives cause:

From December 12 -14, 2012, The Telluride Foundation and other local nonprofit organizations hope that every single citizen will log-on to the Telluride giving page and contribute for the benefit of local charities. Donors search for and choose a nonprofit and give directly to something that will make a difference and celebrate the magic of the Telluride region. This is an opportunity for everyone who cares about the Telluride region to give collectively to the community.

We are excited to be able to contribute towards this wonderful cause. Just another reminder of what it is to be part of this incredible mountain community.

Here is an invitation from the Telluride Gives crew:
