Colorado Gives Day is a statewide movement to increase online giving. This year, Community First Foundation and FirstBank are presenting Colorado Gives Day on December 5, 2017. Donations are accepted at ColoradoGives.org, which features more than 2,000 nonprofits. Colorado Gives Day is one the most successful events of its kind in the nation. Since its inception in 2010, the event has raised more than $145 million for Colorado nonprofits.
This year, Colorado Gives Day is Tuesday, December 5, and features a $1 Million Incentive Fund, created by Community First Foundation and FirstBank. It is one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country. Every donation made through ColoradoGives.org on Colorado Gives Day is boosted by the incentive fund, which increases the value of every dollar. For example, if a nonprofit organization receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, that same nonprofit receives 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund. An additional $100,000 in prizes, sponsored by FirstBank, gives nonprofits an opportunity to win cash for their worthwhile causes.

Enterprise Zone and Bas Bleu
Bas Bleu Theatre Company is a designated Enterprise Zone Project, a state-designated area in need of ecomonic growth and diversification. The Enterprise Zone Tax Credits of 25% for cash donations and 12.5% for in-kind donations are designed to encourage private sector investment in creating and maintaining jobs in the designated zones.
How does Enterprise Zone work?
When you make a donation to Bas Bleu of over $100, we submit that dollar number to the county. We may have to contact you the first time to get Tax ID information. You will then get an official EZ tax credit letter from us, which is provided to us by Larimer County. You provide that letter to your tax professional. It will get you a tax credit of 25% of the donation on your Colorado taxes, even if you do not itemize deductions. If you do itemize deductions, you will still get the deduction for the donation to us, on both your Federal and State taxes, in addition to the EZ tax credit. This means a donation of $1000 can end up costing you only $350 if you are in the top tax bracket. Consult your tax professional for complete details.
