DCED is an investor-based 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. Your investment is tax deductible. Our investors include private and public partnerships. Working together we will develop a strong economy for Delta County and the region. Please consider becoming an investor or making a tax-deductible contribution to further our work. DCED is an approved Enhanced Rural Enterprise Zone Tax Credit Project, as such, a taxpayer who makes a monetary or in-kind donation to DCED may claim a Colorado income tax credit of 25% of the value of the contribution (12.5% for in-kind donations). As an example: a qualifying investment of $1,000 earns the investor a $250 tax credit while DCED benefits from the original $1,000 investment. This is the perfect way to invest in our County and its' economic future.
