COALITION FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS During the solicitation process, you may be posed with questions from your potential donors. We’ve outlined some sample responses to the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) we anticipate from donors for your use:

Q. WHAT IS CCTC? A. CCTC is Colorado’s Child Care Contribution Tax Credit. When you make a financial donation to a qualified child care provider, you get an income tax credit for 50% of your contribution, plus the possibility of additional standard state and federal deductions. You’ll want to talk to your financial / tax advisor to understand exactly what additional deductions you can claim.

Q. HOW DOES CCTC BENEFIT MY BUSINESS? A. Small Business: In addition to the tax credit, you/your business will benefit immediately from a stronger employee and customer base; parents who have access to high-quality, safe and convenient child care can seek employment, training, miss less work and are more productive. And in the long-term, children in quality care grow up to be happier, healthier and safer adults in your neighborhood. All of this results in a stronger community in which you can live and operate your business. Corporation: An investment in early child care will have such substantial returns on education, as well as health, poverty, workforce development and the economy. Chances are you are receiving funding requests for social problems that can be linked to the absence of adequate early education. We know that a child without it is 25 percent more likely to drop out of school, 40 percent more likely to become a teenage parent and 70 percent more likely to be arrested for a violent crime (ThinkProgress.org, 2013), resulting in significant remedial costs later. Bottom line—an investment in early education is good for your business, your employees and your future customers and workforce.

Q. HOW DOES CCTC BENEFIT ME/THE COMMUNITY? A. The effect of child care and early education on the community is vast. Children with it are less likely to become teen parents, criminals or develop health problems. Instead, they are more likely to do well in school, go to college, earn more money and own their own homes. All of this impacts your community’s health, safety and prosperity. These children will grow up to be your neighbors. OR A. We know from emerging research that a child’s development before age 5 is significant and crucial, yet public education dollars are still only allocated to kindergarten and beyond. Therefore, early education remains a shared responsibility of—and benefit to—everyone, and CCTC enables an ideal collaboration between the public and private sectors. As an example of public/private partnership, a business provides the space (real estate) for an early child education facility and the school district and/ or parents’ tuition pay for use of the site, thereby the early child education provider avoids the cost of constructing a building. CCTC brings government, private organizations, businesses and individuals together to work toward a better future for all. And it simultaneously provides incentives for investments, a substantial return on those investments and programs that meet the funding priorities of donors.

Q. HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT THAN MAKING A GIFT DIRECTLY TO A CHILD CARE PROVIDER OF MY CHOICE? A. It isn’t different. The funds still can be directed to any qualified child care provider—nonprofit or for-profit—and the money goes directly to that provider. But with CCTC, you get the bonus of the additional tax credit.

Q. WHERE CAN I FIND A LIST OF QUALIFIED CHILD CARE FACILITIES? A. Let me send you the list. The CCTC website contains an interactive map of Colorado which identifies licensed child care providers by county. Visit the CCTC Website and click on the map of Colorado.

Q. I DON’T SEE XYZ ON THIS LIST…(THEIR CHOICE PROVIDER) A. That means it must be undergoing the registration process—providers have to register first—so let me check in with the provider and see if I can help in any way. You can also send this link for more information www.ColoradoEPIC.org/CCTC.

Q. HOW CAN THE PROVIDERS USE THIS MONEY? A. The providers can use it in many ways that help the children right now; for example, to purchase enrichment materials or send staff to professional development. Other ways the funds can be used (use one of these if you know the donor has a particular interest in it):  Purchase enrichment materials  Send staff to professional development opportunities  Establishment or operation of a child care facility  Grant or loan programs for parents  Training programs for child care providers  Information dissemination programs that assist parents with child care information and referral services

Q. HOW DO I DO THIS? A. It is simple—after making a donation to a qualified provider, the provider will complete just one form and hand you a copy to attach to your tax returns. You can also visit www.ColoradoEPIC.org/CCTC for more information.

Q. CAN I MAKE A GIFT THROUGH MY BUSINESS, OR DOES IT HAVE TO BE AN INDIVIDUAL GIFT? A. Gifts can be made through a business, corporation or by an individual. The same 50% tax credit applies.
