Mi Casa Resource Center is rapidly adapting to support our community needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

We stand in one of our values to be relentlessness in response to a changing world.

In response to COVID-19, we are working to provide critical support in English and Spanish to individuals and small business owners living in our most under-resourced communities.

Over the last several weeks, our dedicated staff have reached out to our community to assess their immediate needs. We are able to see not only the direct impact on our participants, but have a better understanding of the supports they need during this time.

How can you help us?

Our community needs your help. As Mi Casa Resource Center (MCRC) responds to our community,  you can have a direct impact. Your donation will:

  1. Link community members and families to services needed to stay afloat!
  2. Stop small business closures. Support Small Businesses!
  3. Provide guidance and connections to resources for workers and jobseekers using virtual tools so we won’t skip a beat!

MCRC is relentless to meet the needs of our community and every donation counts, no matter the size.

Gifts over $250 are eligible for an Enterprise Zone tax credit.

What is an Enterprise Zone (EZ) Tax Credit?

Colorado’s Enterprise Zone Program provides tax incentives to encourage job creating and capital investment in economically depressed areas of the state. This program makes it possible for Mi Casa Resource Center to offer its donors a Colorado state income tax credit on qualifying contributions which support our work within the Denver Enterprise Zone.

Does my donation qualify for an EZ Tax Credit?

Cash and stock gifts made to Mi Casa may be eligible for the tax credit if:

  • Valued at $250 or more
  • Made by a State of Colorado taxpayer directly or via a third party with 501(c)3 tax exempt status
  • Unrestricted or designated to a Mi Casa Business Development or Career Development program
  • The taxpayer did not receive any direct benefits in exchange for his/her contribution

What are the benefits of an EZ Tax Credit?

Donors who make a qualifying contribution to Mi Casa may claim an income tax credit of 25% on cash donations and 12.5% on stock gifts up to a maximum yearly credit of $100,000.

How do I take advantage of an EZ Tax Credit?

  1. Make a donation of $250 or more to Mi Casa Resource Center.
  2. Call Development Associate, Kathy Callender, at 303-539-5602 with your Federal Employee Identification Number, Colorado Taxpayer Account Number, or the last four digits of your Social Security Number.
