Colorado Gives Day – Please support Shining Mountain!
Colorado’s largest, one-day online giving event, presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, is coming up and we need your help. On Tuesday, December 8, 2015, thousands of donors will come together to support Colorado nonprofits like ours. Last year, a record-breaking $26.2 million was raised for Colorado nonprofits.
This year, our goal is to raise $70,000 on Colorado Gives Day to help us reach our Annual Fund goal of $260,000. Participating in Colorado Gives Day is a quick, easy way to make a year-end gift to Shining Mountain. Please encourage your friends, family and neighbors to do the same.
Colorado Gives Day is Dec 8, but you can schedule your gift today. Your donation will be processed on Dec 8 and be counted in the total for this special day.

Colorado Gives Day features a $1 Million Incentive Fund. Participating nonprofits receive a percentage of the incentive fund to help your dollar go farther. If a nonprofit receives 10% of the total raised on Colorado Gives Day, that nonprofit receives 10% of the $1 Million Incentive Fund.
Your contribution helps us continue to provide a top-notch Waldorf education for our students. Our vision is to develop thoughtful, fulfilled citizens who have the capacity to think imaginatively, communicate effectively, relate compassionately, and take initiative to effect healthy change in our world.
Potential Tax Savings
Every dollar counts and we appreciate all donations made! Donations are tax deductible.
If you are able to contribute $500 or more and live in the state of Colorado, you might be eligible for our Colorado Child Care Tax Credit (CCCTC). The CCCTC lets you deduct 50% of the total contribution from your state income tax filing, while still claiming the full contribution to Shining Mountain on your federal tax returns.
If you have any questions on the CCCTC or Colorado Gives Day, please contact Julie Marr at JulieM@smwaldorf.org or 303-951-8583.
Thank you so much for your support!
