Donate to NSCD
Thank you for donating to the NSCD! Sports and recreation activities are expensive, and our participants depend on us to provide adaptive equipment, specially-trained instructors and coaches. The NSCD receives only 16 percent of its revenue from participant fees. The remaining 84 percent comes from philanthropic gifts, grants, fundraising events and sponsorships. Without your support, we could not do what we do each day.
If you would prefer to donate via cash or check, please mail to:
National Sports Center for the Disabled
1801 Mile High Stadium Circle, Suite 1500
Denver, CO 80204
Any questions? Contact us at [email protected] or (303) 293-5711. Thank you!
The NSCD respects donor privacy and all donor information remains confidential. The NSCD will not share or sell a donor’s personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations. Donor information will only be shared if the donor has given specific permission to do so. Payments are securely processed by Blackbaud (click link above for details).
In 2019, Colorado returned more than $1 billion in refunds to 1.9 million state taxpayers. In 2020, Coloradans who receive a state income tax refund will have the chance to donate all or some of it to a local nonprofit they trust like the National Sports Center for the Disabled. The ReFUND CO awareness campaign shows how you can directly support the NSCD and the important work we do in the community.
If you get a state income tax refund, you are in control of deciding to donate to the NSCD! Through this program, you can help us continue to provide unforgettable experiences for our participants in 2020.
To participate, taxpayers should look for the “Donate to a Colorado Nonprofit” line of their tax return or tax software and enter the name and registration number of the eligible organization they want to support.
The NSCD’s registration number is: 20023003269
We’re grateful for your past support to the NSCD and we hope that you’ll consider continuing your support through this program!
