In 2019, Colorado returned more than $1 billion in refunds to 1.9 million state taxpayers.
In 2020, Coloradans who receive a state income tax refund will have a chance to donate all or some of it to a local nonprofit they trust like the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center.
Imagine if state taxpayers chose to donate just a portion of their refunds; this outpouring of support would re-energize local community causes across Colorado and make a massive positive impact on our state.
The ReFUND CO awareness campaign shows how you can directly support a local nonprofit that is doing important work in your community. If you get state income tax refund, this new program puts you in control of deciding to donate some or all of it and choosing exactly which Colorado-registered charity will directly benefit.
For our organization, this provides a new way to fund our ongoing work in the community.
Whether you do your taxes yourself or use a tax preparer, RefundWhatMatters.org provides simple instructions for how to make sure your refund donation goes to your chosen nonprofit.
As we get closer to 2020 tax season, you’ll get more information on this program and how it works.
We’re grateful for your past support for our organization and we hope you’ll consider continuing your support in this new way.
