Tax refund donation program may boost state' nonprofits

Printer-friendly version

Coloradans have a generous spirit. We want to contribute in our own way to causes and nonprofits that are important to us.

In a recent statewide survey by the Colorado Nonprofit Association, 85% of respondents said they think of themselves as someone who supports charitable causes.

Now Coloradans have a new, innovative way to act on our generous intent and give to nonprofits during an unusual time of year for charity — tax season.

A new state program that allows Coloradans to donate all or part of their state income tax refund to one of more than 7,750 eligible charities can provide a needed infusion of resources to nonprofits doing good work in our communities.

Forty-one states have some form of tax checkoff program, but Colorado’s new Donate to a Colorado Nonprofit program is the first in the nation to give taxpayers such broad choice. Previously, taxpayers could choose only from one of 18 causes approved by the Colorado Legislature.
