Tax Credits

Thanks to the Enterprise Zone Tax Credits, Colorado taxpayers may earn a 25% state income tax credit on any donation over $100.

For a $1,000 donation, you get a $250 tax credit!

Please note: the State limits the number of credits available to each participating organization each calendar year. Once the limit is met, additional credits will not be issued until the next calendar year.

Due to state regulations, donations made through a Donor Advised Fund do not qualify.

Please consult with your professional tax adviser to be sure the Enterprise Zone tax credit program will be of benefit to your specific tax situation.
