There are a number of ways to give to Friendship Bridge, and our high charity and financial health ratings are proof that your support is used efficiently and effectively. We have a Guidestar Gold rating, the program’s highest distinction that is awarded to less than .5% of charities. We also have a four-star Charity Navigator rating, the program’s highest rating, and participate in the Combined Federal Campaign.
In our Microcredit Plus program, the women we serve are on a journey that culminates each month, or cada mes, in Spanish. They meet with their Trust Banks, make payments on their loans, and participate in education sessions — each month. Join the Cada Mes Club and support them on this journey — each month.
To join the Cada Mes Club, head to our donate page and choose the monthly giving option with the amount you’re most comfortable with. You can modify your monthly gift at any time by calling our office at 303-674-0717 or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Here is sample bequest language to share with your lawyer:
“After fulfilling all other provisions, I hereby give, devise, and bequeath to Friendship Bridge (Federal Tax ID# 84-1141078), a charitable organization duly existing under the laws of the Colorado and located at 405 Urban Street, Suite 140, Lakewood, CO 80228, _______percent of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate [or $________ if specific amount] to be used in the areas of greatest need as the board of directors may determine.”
It may make smart tax sense to consider a charitable gift of appreciated securities instead of writing a check—especially for gifts of $1,000 or more. The IRS allows a charitable tax deduction for the full market value of the appreciated security and you avoid capital gains tax. Please contact us at for stock giving instructions.
