If you are due a Colorado income tax refund or are assisting with tax preparation, taking action is simple:

  1. Decide how much of your state income tax refund to donate (all or a portion of it).
  2. Enter “Eagle River Watershed Council” and our registration number “20073006621″ in the Donate to a Colorado Nonprofit Fund line on your state tax return or tax software – or give this info to your tax preparer when you share your tax documents.

We made a handy sheet you can print off and turn in to your tax preparer with this information – just download and print or email to the preparer along with your tax documents!




This year, Coloradans will again have a chance to donate from their state income tax refund to a local nonprofit they trust, such as Eagle River Watershed Council.

Through the Donate to a Colorado Nonprofit program, taxpayers can choose to support any eligible Colorado-registered charity with a simple designation on their state income tax return. Previously, taxpayers could choose only from one of 18 causes approved by the Colorado Legislature.
