Hospital foundation joins in tax refund program

Colorado taxpayers can donate part or all of their state income tax refunds to St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation and other registered organizations through a new program.

Under the Donate to a Colorado Nonprofit program, taxpayers can support any registered charity with a designation on their state income tax returns. Taxpayers decide how much of their state income tax refund to donate and the charities to which to donate.

Taxpayers can designate St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation and registration number 20023003998 on their returns or tax software or instruct their tax preparers to do so.

In 2018, Colorado returned more than $1 billion in income tax refunds, an average of $563 to more than 1.9 million taxpayers. An educational program called ReFUND CO promotes the Donate to a Colorado Nonprofit program. For more information, visit http://refundwhatmatters.org.
