Support the Carousel on Colorado Gives Day

Colorado Gives Day is coming up quickly, on Tuesday, Dec. 8th.

Schedule your donation to the Carousel of Happiness today and help us reach our goal of $80,000 by the end of the year to keep the Carousel spinning for years to come.

Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. Donations are accepted for qualified nonprofits through ColoradoGives.org.

Carousel donors of $150 and above will receive access to view Carving Joy, a short film about Scott Harrison, the artist behind one of Colorado’s most beloved attractions. In Carving Joy, Scott reflects on how this Front Range landmark began with a wind-up music box on the front lines of the Vietnam War.

Anyone donating to support the Carousel at this level also will receive a beautiful, hand-carved bird by the artist himself as a thank you gift.
