Income Tax Checkoff for Nongame and Endangered Species
Help threatened and endangered wildlife by donating all or a portion of your tax refund to the “Colorado Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Fund.” Colorado is home to more than 750 species of wildlife that are categorized as “nongame” species—animals that are not hunted, fished or trapped. The Nongame and Endangered Wildlife program supports species conservation for black-tailed prairie dogs, boreal toads, Gunnison sage-grouse, lynx, black-footed ferrets and dozens of other species. The “Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Fund” checkoff box is located under the Voluntary Contributions section of the Colorado state income tax form. The donation itself is also tax deductible.
