Give a larger gift benefiting kids at no extra cost to you.


Colorado residents who make qualifying gifts to Children’s Hospital Colorado are eligible for a generous tax benefit through the Enterprise Zone Tax Credit.

What is the Enterprise Zone Tax Credit?

The Colorado Enterprise Zone Tax Credit is an opportunity to donate to Children’s Colorado and reduce the amount of state income tax you pay, in addition to federal and state charitable deductions you may receive for gifts to charity. You can nearly double the size of your gift – and the impact of your generosity – without increasing the net cost to you.

Colorado residents who make qualifying gifts to Children’s Colorado are eligible to receive up to 25% to use against your state income tax if giving an outright gift of cash, or 12.5% for gifts of appreciated assets, such as stocks and securities.
