If you itemize deductions on your tax returns, you may also be able to deduct your donation from your federal and state taxes, too. (Consult your tax advisor to determine the deductibility of your donation.) That means for your $100 gift to Bright Futures, you end up paying a lot less!
Bright Futures is a workforce development program established by the Weld County Board of County Commissioners to assist Weld County high school graduates and GED earners with money for college, training, or certification programs.
Data shows skilled graduates tend to remain in the area where they went to school. If they can receive help to go to school in Weld County, they are likely to stay here and contribute to the Weld County skilled workforce.
Since 2015, Bright Futures has given more than $21 million in free money for college or trade school to more than 5,875 students. This could not have been accomplished without support from Weld County residents like you.
Donations are accepted in any amount. If you are a Weld County property owner, you may receive a property tax credit of 50% of your donation on a portion of your taxes, even if your property taxes are paid through your mortgage company.
