$1 billion-plus in play for Colorado nonprofits; now you can use your tax refund to support us
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 Project Sanctuary. 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.
For our organization, support like this provides much-needed funds so more families can participate in our therapeutic retreats (at no cost to them).
It’s as simple as 1,2,3:
- Decide how much of your refund to donate.
- Enter our information (choose Project Sanctuary) in the “Donate to a Colorado Nonprofit Fund line” on your state income tax return or tax software - or just give this info to your tax preparer when you share your tax documents. This is in the “Voluntary Contributions section,” and you’ll scroll past a short list of nonprofit names before you see the “Donate to a Colorado Nonprofit” option.
You will need to use our name AND our Secretary of State registration number;
Project Sanctuary: 20083007028
- Smile, knowing you’ve supported us in our mission to change how families heal!
A couple of important notes:
- You will only be able to “write in” one nonprofit.
- Because tax info is confidential, we will not receive any information about who has donated. Because of this, you will not receive a thank you letter/acknowledgment from us. If you would like a tax letter (because it could be tax-deductible on your 2020 return next year), you will need to give us documentation that you made the donation (e.g. the relevant page from the 2019 return).
