Important note regarding Bent County Development Foundation's Additional Colorado State Tax Credit(s): All donations to the Bent County Development Foundation are eligible for the Colorado Enterprise Zone Tax Credit. Enterprise Zone Contribution Projects are managed by local Zone Administrators to encourage public private partnerships to improve the economy for the benefit of the broader Enterprise Zone. Contribution Projects aim to focus community engagement on an economic issue or opportunity to elicit a shift and accomplish a targeted economic development goal within a defined time period. Enterprise Zone Administrators are focused on managing this program with a strong ethic and focus on job creation/retention and business expansion in the Enterprise Zone.
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.
