Giving grows up: Colorado tax credit encourages giving to CSU's Early Childhood Center

Did you know that gifts to the Colorado State University Early Childhood Center may be eligible for the Colorado Child Care Contribution Credit (CCCCC)?

The CCCCC was established to promote greater donations for Colorado child care programs in order to increase the quality and availability of these programs throughout the state. Colorado taxpayers who make cash gifts to the Early Childhood Center may be able to receive a 50 percent tax credit on state income taxes when the donation promotes a childcare program. For details, please consult your tax adviser.

For additional information, visit the Child Care Contribution Credit page on the Colorado Department of Revenue website. To give a gift to the Early Childhood Center, visit
