ReFUND CO: Supporting MVDS With Your State Tax Return
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 and for our local nonprofits like Mountain Valley Developmental Services. Our purpose is to provide persons served and their families with support that will promote skill acquisition, independence and inclusion within the community.
To fulfill this purpose, the organization is entrusted with the administration of public funds that are intended specifically to assist persons with developmental disabilities and their families, so it is exciting to know that 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.
The ReFUND CO awareness campaign shows how you can directly support a local nonprofit that is doing important work in your community. If you get a state income tax refund, this new program puts you in control of deciding to donate some or all of it and choosing exactly which Colorado-registered charity will directly benefit.
For our organization, this provides a new way to fund our ongoing work in the community.
Whether you do your taxes yourself or use a tax preparer, RefundWhatMatters.org provides simple instructions for how to make sure your refund donation goes to your chosen nonprofit.
Tax time creates a new season of giving to support our work
The new program described by the ReFUND CO initiative puts you in charge of where your donation goes. It’s as simple as 1,2,3:
- Decide how much of your refund to donate.
- Enter Mountain Valley Developmental Services and our registration number 20033006138 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.
- Smile knowing you’ve helped a cause that matters to you.
Because our important work is never done, we’re always in need of new funds to revitalize our organization and recharge our work. ReFUND CO shows you how you can support our mission at a critical time of the year and help us continue to encourage and support individuals with developmental disabilities, enhance their ability to live, learn, and work in an independent and inclusive manner, and to educate the community about their contributions and capabilities.
