Your donation actually costs you very little, but gives back a lot! Here is how it works:

Find the Weld County portion of your property tax.

Tax Statement example. 

Decide how much you would like to donate to the program; you will receive 50% of your donation amount in the form of a property tax credit on the Weld County portion of your property taxes.

See your donation work for you as it allows you to enjoy State and Federal deductions, in addition to your Weld County property tax credit.

PLEASE NOTE: You have until JUNE 15 to donate to the current property tax bill (2015 payable 2016). After June 15, we will move on to the next property tax year (2016 payable 2017). Essentially, you can donate twice a year and use both contributions on your State and Federal returns as deductions.

The Weld County Bright Futures Grant Program is dedicated to building a strong local work force that will ensure the ongoing success of our county.

Your property tax bill includes taxes from other entities such as municipalities, library districts, fire districts and other special districts. By making a donation to the Weld County Bright Futures Grant Program, you can reduce the Weld County property tax portion of your bill which translates into a lower tax bill overall.
