The committee was called to order. Senator Priola, prime sponsor, presented Senate Bill 17-287, which creates an income tax credit for contributions made to an endowment of a Colorado charitable organization. Eligible endowment funds do not include donor advised funds or funds for private foundations, which are typically funded by a single primary donor instead of the general public. The credit is equal to 25 percent of the contribution up to a maximum of $25,000 per taxpayer per year. The credit is non-refundable, but can be carried forward for five years, and is available in tax years 2017, 2018, and 2019.
