Giving That Gives Back | The Colorado Child Care Contribution Credit (CCCC)
Updated: Nov 16
With the season of giving approaching, now’s the perfect time to be thinking about end-of-the-year donations and their impact on your personal finances. For those filing taxes in Colorado, the generosity you provide to organizations like Brent’s Place may be offset by a unique tax credit opportunity: the Colorado Child Care Contribution Credit (CCCC).
This beneficial tax credit can provide considerable savings on gifts of $250 or more made during the given calendar year. When you give to an accredited CCCC program or agency, such as Brent’s Place, 50 percent of your qualifying cash donation is offset dollar-for-dollar against your Colorado income taxes, meaning that the more you give, the greater your tax credit. While stock or other securities and in-kind gifts, such as labor or equipment, are not eligible, individuals, estates, trusts, partnerships, and corporations that file a Colorado state tax return are eligible to claim the credit for qualifying contributions. Here’s an illustration of how this credit could impact your tax savings:
Your contribution can help provide families that find themselves far from home in search of life-saving treatment with hot meals, a warm bed, individualized support programs, and so much more – regardless of their financial situation. Give today and see your gift – and your tax savings – go further.
