Important note regarding Denver Kids, Inc.'s Additional Colorado State Tax Credit(s): Denver Kids is included in the Enterprise Zone Tax Credit program. This means that the State of Colorado allows you to take up to a 25% tax credit on your state income taxes when you make a donation to Denver Kids, Inc. of $250 or more via cash, check, or credit card, and a 12.5% tax credit on donations of $500 or more via stock or in-kind. EXAMPLE: If you donate $1,000 and receive a 25% tax credit, then your out of pocket donation is $750 while Denver Kids receives $1,000. Taxpayers claiming the Enterprise Zone tax credit must file their tax returns electronically. The Colorado Department of Revenue will use the taxpayer identification number provided on their tax return to verify the tax credit claimed on the DR0075 form (provided by Denver Kids via The Colorado Office of Economic Development). This means that these two numbers must match in order for the tax credit to be claimed. Taxpayers can use their Colorado Account Number in place of their social security number on the DR0075, if preferred. ** For donations to qualify for 2020 tax credits, Denver Kids must have the donor's FEIN, last four digits of your Social Security number, or Colorado Account Number.* Should you have any questions about the Enterprise Zone Tax Credit program, please contact Kelsey Grayson at NOTE: Denver Kids and The Colorado Office of Economic Development do not provide guidance on federal law or taxes. Taxpayers are advised to seek tax or legal guidance. Per The Colorado Office of Economic Development, EZ Contributions follow Federal Charitable Contribution rules. To learn more, see IRS Publication 526. See the "Recent Developments" section for information on the treatment of state tax credits for charitable contributions. As of 2019, donations from Donor Advised Funds are not eligible for the Enterprise Zone Tax Credit.

Third-party Processing Fees

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.

Receipts and Tax Credits

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.
