Food For Thought's focus is on the alleviation of weekend hunger for students in Denver Public Schools (DPS) where 90% or more of the students qualify for free and reduced lunch programs. Currently FFT delivers PowerSacks every Friday to over 3800 students at eight elementary schools and operates a food pantry at South High School which serves over 100 students each week. The long term goal is to alleviate weekend hunger for students in 20 DPS elementary schools by the year 2020.
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.
