AVON, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Checkoff Colorado allows taxpayers to make voluntary contributions to
their favorite charitable organizations when they file their state
income tax return. This year, eighteen nonprofit organizations,
including Roundup River Ranch, are eligible for taxpayer contributions
and are included on your Colorado 104 individual income tax form.
Roundup River Ranch provides children with serious illnesses, ages 17
and under, an old-fashioned, pure fun camp experience where they are not
defined by their illness. At camp programs held throughout the year,
children from the Rocky Mountains 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 peace 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, Roundup River Ranch family. “At family camp, our family is
able to forget about cancer and focus on togetherness, connecting and
most of all fun.”
This year, Roundup River Ranch is excited to celebrate their 10-year
anniversary. Celebrating their 10th year, more than 1,000
campers and their families will experience Roundup River Ranch as well
as welcome their 4000th camper, a significant milestone
within the camp community.
It’s easy to give to Roundup River Ranch right on your 2015 tax form.
