Respite Care is a nonprofit organization serving Colorado children, meaning every contribution made to Respite Care is eligible to receive a Colorado Child Care Contribution tax credit. Your donation qualifies you for a tax credit equal to 50% of the donation, as well as state and federal tax deductions. Here's an example of how a $1,000 donation can cost a donor only $210: Colorado tax credit: $500 State tax deduction: $23 Federal tax deduction: $267 Actual cost of investment: $210
Third-party vendors charge credit card and electronic check processing fees when you make an online donation. Two percent of each donation helps to cover these fees and ensures the program's long-term sustainability. The two percent processing fee is one of the lowest processing fees in the country.
You will automatically receive an on-screen acknowledgement letter and an e-mailed copy for your donation. Every donation is tax deductible as a charitable contribution to the full extent permitted by law. If you make a donation to a charity that offers Child Care or Enterprise Zone credits (additional Colorado state tax credits), Community First Foundation will acknowledge that your donation was processed successfully, but the charity will issue you an additional receipt pursuant to that. To learn more about these tax credits, contact the specific nonprofits.
