The Colorado Healthy Rivers Fund Needs Your Help!
Have you completed your taxes yet? If not, there's still time for you to make your filing process brighter by making a donation to the Colorado Healthy Rivers Fund on your State Individual Tax Form 104.
The Colorado Healthy Rivers Fund, a Colorado Tax Check-off Program, uses funds donated by tax payers to support local conservation projects throughout the state. It's easy to support groups like those on this map. You just contribute a portion of your tax return or make a donation on line 43 of your Colorado State Individual Tax Form 104! You can even have your accountant make the contribution for you when they file your taxes. Just be sure to tell them about it.
Since 2003, over 130,000 citizens have donated more than $1,099,000 from their tax returns to the Fund. Thanks to these donations, more than 80 projects have been granted funding from the Colorado Healthy Rivers Fund - projects that contribute to cleaner water, healthier wildlife habitat, and improved recreation throughout the State.
A Call to Action
The Colorado Healthy Rivers Fund is up for reauthorization as HB15-1252 by the state legislature. This means that the Fund will continue to collect donations via the tax checkoff program if the bill passes. We need your help. Please contact your state legislator today and tell them how important the Colorado Healthy Rivers Fund is to you, your community, and Colorado's environmental future.
