All Enterprise Zone donations must include a social security number or a Colorado Taxpayer Account Number in order to receive the Enterprise Zone credit.  Please note, taxpayers can use their Colorado Account Number in place of their Social Security Number on EZ tax credit forms if preferred.

All Colorado taxpayers have a Colorado Account Number and can request it by visiting www.colorado.gov/revenueonline .  Choose “Individual” of “Business” and then choose “Request Letter ID” and select “Sign Up.” Please include your social security or account number on your check when submitting your donation.


Murphy Center Endowment Fund

In 2018, we launched an Endowment Fund for the Murphy Center.  The Murphy Center is our community’s hub of services for individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.  It is also an initiative of Homeless Gear.  Our goal with a Murphy Center Endowment Fund is to ensure the long-term stability of the Murphy Center – to solidify funds that we can rely on, year-over-year, to carry out the Murphy Center mission.
