Tax form allows charitable donations to local nonprofit

EAGLE COUNTY — Checkoff Colorado allows taxpayers to make voluntary contributions to their favorite charitable organizations when they file their state income tax returns. This year, 18 nonprofit organizations, including Roundup River Ranch, are eligible for taxpayer contributions and are included on the Colorado 104 individual income tax form.

Roundup River Ranch provides children with serious illnesses, ages 17 and younger, an old-fashioned, fun camp experience where they are not defined by their illnesses. At camp programs held throughout the year, children from the Rocky Mountain region and their families discover the healing power of love, laughter, friendship and shared experiences. Campers realize they are not alone, find the courage to try new activities and build confidence. With full medical, physical and emotional support from healthcare professionals, staff and volunteers, campers and their families have the piece of mind to relax and experience the joys of childhood. And best of all, no camper or their family ever pays a penny.

“One silver lining out of this cancer journey is Roundup River Ranch. I simply cannot put into words the gift camp has given our family,” said Kelly Gates, a Roundup River Ranch family member. “At family camp, our family is able to forget about cancer and focus on togetherness, connecting and most of all fun.”

How to Donate

This year, Roundup River Ranch is excited to celebrate its 10 year anniversary. This year, more than 1,000 campers and their families will experience Roundup River Ranch. The camp will also welcome its 4,000th camper, a significant milestone within the camp community.
