Our ID number is 123117. We are listed under our legal name, the Alta Vista Center for Autism.
  • Pension Protection Act: New laws permit donors aged 70½ or older to make certain tax-free distributions from Traditional and Roth IRAs to qualified charities for a limited time. Please consult your financial advisor to determine what is best for your situation.
  • Volunteer: Firefly Autism welcomes volunteers and has a number of opportunities available. Those wishing to help with our children are asked to make a commitment of semester or more. Please see "Volunteer Opportunities" located under "Forms & Information" on this page or contact for more information.


Information Regarding the Child Care Contribution Credit (CCCC)

The CCCC is available for gifts of $250 or more that are directed to a CCCC program or agency such as Firefly Autism. It is eligible for 505 tax credit on state income tax. Currently, the CCCC is deferred (but not eliminated) for gifts in 2012. Due to a 2011 change in Colorado State law, in 2013 and 2014, tax credits can be claimed at 50% and 75% respectively. In 2015, the credit allowed is 100%.
