How to Help
Ways to Contribute
To continue the work we do at the Colorado Neurological Institute, we need your support.
Just as our physicians and researchers touch lives and change the future through patient care, education and research, our donors touch lives and change the future through their sharing and generosity. Because of contributions, CNI is able to continue providing world-class care and hope to patients with neurological disease. Your philanthropic support helps CNI achieve its mission to deliver excellence from diagnosis to treatment to rehabilitation and recovery.
Since our founding as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 1988, we have been proud to earn the support of our patients, our community and our donors. CNI is funded by tax deductible donations from our patients, companies, foundations, and interested individuals. There are many ways to support our mission, including:
25 for 25 Campaign
The Colorado Neurological Institute invites you to join us as we celebrate a rich history of providing excellent service and care to those experiencing neurological conditions.

Pay it Forward Match Program
Help support CNI's mission by participating in our Pay it Forward Match Program. If you or your company donates to CNI, we encourage you to find another individual or group who is willing to match your gift. This ripple effect greatly benefits our efforts in patient services, education, and research. Start a movement today!
Many employers match charitable contributions made by employees. CNI may qualify for your company's matching gift program because we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law. Please contact Steve Washington, Director of Development at CNI at email@example.com, if you wish to make a matching gift.
Annual gifts support the highest priorities at CNI, sustaining our mission: To enhance the delivery of personalized, comprehensive and state-of-the-art care to patients with neurological conditions through coordinated patient care, education, research, and outreach activities.
Planned giving can be as simple as naming the Colorado Neurological Institute as a/the beneficiary in your will. There are many ways beyond a bequest to make a planned gift to CNI, including gifts of stock, tangible personal property, charitable gift annuities, and many other options.
Cause marketing refers to targeted marketing campaigns that strategically align corporations and businesses with a specific cause their customers care about. The campaign is geared toward increasing sales, with a portion being donated back to Colorado Neurological Institute. It's a win-win for both CNI and your company; CNI benefits from the proceeds, while your business benefits from sales!

A legacy gift to the Colorado Neurological Institute is special and unique to your needs and desires. Usually the legacy is established through the inclusion of CNI in your will, via an insurance policy, or through a planned giving instrument. An endowment is a gift that provides a powerful message: I believe in the Colorado Neurological Institute and trust CNI to use my gift for my legacy once I have passed away. The message of trust and charity left behind is where the greatest treasure lies.
Each year, CNI holds a number of special events raising significant support of our mission. These include our annual Hope Award Celebation, golf outing and gala. These events provide visible corporate sponsorship opportunities.
CNI enjoys a long history of volunteerism. CNI Volunteers are encouraged to use their skills and training to assist with our various needs and events. Volunteers may participate in the organization and/or implementation of educational seminars and CNI educational and social functions. Volunteers are also given opportunities to meet and interact with many of the patients and families who have been touched by CNI.
