Ways to Give
One child at a time, your gift will change the
trajectory of a child’s life forever.
Early Connections also welcomes non-cash gifts such as stock and bonds, real estate, retirement assets and insurance. Gifts can be made for example through a bequest, qualified charitable distribution, beneficiary designation, annuity or trust.

Colorado Tax Credit
The State of Colorado offers a 50% income tax credit for donations to child care centers. As a leader in early childcare and education, Early Connections Learning Centers donors are eligible to receive the maximum 50% tax credit.
What does that mean? This means that your individual or corporate contribution to Early Connections Learning Centers has a direct impact on the lives of over 700 children AND it has the additional benefit of reducing your Colorado tax liability.
Figures in the table are based on a 33% tax bracket.
The CARES ACT: a new tax incentive in response to COVID-19.
If you take the standard deduction, the CARES ACT allows you to deduct up to a $300 in charitable donations on your 2020 federal taxes. Any donation to qualifying charities of up to $300 in 2020 will be added to the standard rate of deduction.
For itemized deductions, the CARES ACT allows you to deduct of up to 100% of your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) for contributions to qualifying charities. The new law temporarily lifts the limits on charitable giving from 60% of a taxpayer’s AGI to 100% for 2020.
For corporations, the CARES ACT allows a deduction of up to 25% of Adjusted Tax Income for contributions to qualifying charities starting in 2020. The new law temporarily lifts the limits from 10% of adjusted taxable income to 25% for 2020.
I am committed to Early Connections because I believe that what Frederick Douglass said is true “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men”. Every child deserves to feel loved, valued, and receive a quality education at the earliest age possible and feel part of a community that cares so they can carry that forward in life.
