All of the nonprofits listed on ColoradoGives.org are recognized by the Internal Revenue Service and in good standing with the Secretary of State. This means that your donations are tax deductible as charitable contributions to the full extent permitted by law.
Additional Colorado state tax credits (defined below) may be available through several of the nonprofits on the site. Visit the "Financials" tab on an organization's profile under "Tax Credit" to determine if additional credits apply.
If your donations are made to nonprofits that offer these credits, Community First Foundation will acknowledge that your donations were processed, but your receipt for tax purposes will be issued by the charities that offer state tax credits. The nonprofits will also determine the extent to which your contributions are eligible. Please contact them directly for confirmation and instruction.
