Donate Your Tax Refund to Charity

You can donate to a qualified organization with your Colorado income tax return by entering their ID on the Voluntary Contributions Schedule (DR 0104CH) of your Colorado Individual Income Tax Return. There are two ways to look up the information you will need to enter on your DR 0104CH form: the Charity Lookup Tool and the List of Qualified Non-Profits/Charities

How to Use the Charity Look Up Tool

  1. Go to Colorado.gov/Tax/CO-Non-Profit-Number
  2. Enter the full or part of the charity's name in the Search Box. It is not case sensitive.
  3. Enter the Tax Year you are filing for. 
  4. If you cannot find the charity you are looking for, the Advanced Search may help. Click Advanced Search under the "Search" button. Enter specified information to narrow down the search results.
  5. Once you find the charity you wish to donate to, enter their 11-digit Registration Number on the DR 0104CH. If using a printed form, enter the 11-digit Registration Number and the charity's name as it appears in the Charity Lookup Tool on the form.
