Reach Out and Read Colorado’s ReFUND Registration Number
In 2019, Colorado returned more than $1 billion in refunds to 1.9 million state taxpayers.
New this year, Coloradans who receive a state income tax refund will have a chance to donate all or some of it to a local nonprofit they trust like Reach Out and Read Colorado.
Imagine if state taxpayers chose to donate just a portion of their refunds; this outpouring of support would re-energize local community causes across Colorado and make a massive positive impact on our state.
For Reach Out and Read Colorado, this provides a new way to fund our ongoing work that supports children in your communities. Better yet, all donations received through ReFUND CO will be matched dollar for dollar (up to $75,000) by the Dean and Helen Witter Family Fund, doubling your impact! That means that a donation of just $100 will support four children in their entire Reach Out and Read journey, from 6 months to 5 years old.
Whether you do your taxes yourself or use a tax preparer, RefundWhatMatters.org provides simple instructions for how to make sure your refund donation goes to your chosen nonprofit.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
1. Decide how much of your refund you want to donate.
2. Find the ‘Donate to a Colorado Nonprofit Fund‘ line on your state income tax return or tax software, and enter ‘Reach Out and Read Colorado‘ and our registration number ‘20093013367.’
3. Your gift will matched, doubling your impact, and kids all across the state will build strong foundations for success!

“I want to thank you for all the wonderful books that our practice receives from Reach Out and Read Colorado. Your program is a gift to our families and their children, and truly promotes literacy and the mission of our profession. Our location in Green Valley Ranch is approximately 70% Medicaid, so Reach Out and Read is very much appreciated by our families, and may be the only books these kids own themselves. It has become an eagerly anticipated part of every well visit!”
