All gifts to Eureka! are tax-deductible to the fullest extent possible! Not only may donors deduct their gifts on both federal and state returns, they also may be able to claim the additional Enterprise Zone tax credit on their State of Colorado return. This means that, depending upon a donor’s tax bracket and itemizations, a donation may cost the donor less than the amount of the contribution.
Cash donations of $50 or more may be eligible for a 25% tax credit on donor’s Colorado State Income Tax Return. In-kind gifts valued at $100 or above may be eligible for a 12.5% tax credit on donor’s Colorado State Tax Return. In-kind donations of $2,000 or more must be accompanied by valuation documentation.
