As an added bonus, if you are older than 72, your donation will count towards your required minimum distribution for the year.

Donate all or some of your state tax refund directly to CASA:

Once you have determined that you will get a Colorado refund, you will use the “Voluntary Contributions” schedule to choose an eligible nonprofit. Look for the new additional option of “Donate to a Colorado Nonprofit Fund” on that schedule and insert all three of the following:

  • CASA of Jefferson & Gilpin Counties
  • Our CCSA Registration Number: 20033002596 (Both name and number are required)

Note: Different tax filing software programs (like TurboTax) will display prompts for tax filers getting refunds in various ways, look for “Donate to a Colorado Fund.” If you are using a tax preparer, like H&R Block or a CPA, you will need to inform the tax preparer to include the nonprofit’s name, CCSA registration number and amount.

Take Advantage of the Colorado’s Child Care Contribution Credit

Colorado has created a unique state tax credit designed to encourage greater private contributions promoting child care throughout our state. The benefits of the Child Care Credit supplement, rather than replace, the tax benefits already in place at the state and federal levels. That is, a donor may still claim the federal charitable deduction and the state charitable deduction, with the Child Care Credit reducing any remaining state tax on a dollar-for-dollar basis.

When a donation is made to CASA Jefferson & Gilpin Counties, the Child Care Contribution Credit may allow a donor to claim a tax credit equal to 50% of the total donation, up to $100,000. See example of a donation to CASA Jeffco/Gilpin below.
