With available funds we are able to assist people in emergency situations such as help with shelter, rent, prescriptions, transportation, medical appointments, utilities, gasoline for employment or to get to out of town medical appointments. The need in rural Colorado is ever growing and funds are usually low. Our small town has no emergency shelter for those displaced or homeless and no public transportation system in place for those in need.
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.
