How does a taxpayer make a gift to the Alzheimer’s Association?
Making a donation is easy! Print the amount that you would like to donate on line 28 of your Colorado State Tax return form 104, then attach form DR0104CH and designate Alzheimer's Association Fund line 16 with the amount of your donation. You can do this yourself, or ask your tax preparer to do it on your behalf.
Not getting a return? You can still follow the same directions and include the amount with your check to Colorado Dept of Revenue, and they will send your contribution directly to us.
About Checkoff Colorado
Checkoff Colorado is a collaboration of 19 statewide non-profit organizations eligible for voluntary contributions on the Colorado state income tax form. Colorado was the first state in the country (1977) to allow a taxpayer to “checkoff” a voluntary contribution to a non-profit organization. Each organization listed on the Colorado tax checkoff has completed a rigorous review process and has been approved by the Colorado State Legislature. After three years, an organization must go before the legislature for renewal.
On behalf of the 67,000 individuals living with Alzheimer's and their 239,000 caregivers, thank you for your support. 100% of your donation to the Alzheimer's Association will fund essential education, training, and counseling services to urban and rural families.
