Donate to the Region 9 Economic Development District of SW Colorado's Business Support Fund that will provide funding to regional businesses forced to close or limit services due to COVID-19. A combination of grants and low-interest loans will be available through this fundraising effort.
This fund was approved as a designated Colorado Enterprise Zone Project and any donation of $100 or more is eligible for a 25% State Tax Credit. In order to receive this credit, individuals need to provide the last four digits of their social security number and businesses need to provide their EIN number. You can enter this information under "Special instructions or comments for nonprofit" during the donation process, or Region 9 will contact you after your donation is made.
