Roundup River Ranch is part of Checkoff Colorado

Colorado taxpayers can donate to 18 nonprofits

Checkoff Colorado allows taxpayers to make voluntary contributions to their favorite charitable organizations when they file their state income tax return. This year, 18 nonprofit organizations, including Roundup River Ranch, are eligible for taxpayer contributions and are included on your Colorado individual income tax form.

Roundup River Ranch provides children with serious illnesses, ages 17 and under, an old-fashioned, pure fun camp experience where they are not defined by their illness or by the things they haven’t tried before. In 2008, Roundup River Ranch went before the Colorado State legislature to be considered to be part of the Checkoff Colorado program. A select group of organizations participate each year and beginning with the 2014 tax return, Roundup River Ranch became one of them.

The funds represent a diverse range of causes that provide critical programs and services to communities throughout Colorado. Last year, taxpayers helped raise $45,000 for Roundup River Ranch through this effort; this year, the goal is to reach $60,000.
