We are happy to announce that the Capital Campaign for FCMoD is now complete! We are so grateful for all of your support which helped make this wonderful new museum possible. From large to small, every gift was important to help us reach our goal. Please see FCMoD Capital Campaign Champions and FCMoD Corporate Supporters for all of the people and organizations who contributed to the campaign.
While we celebrate the end of the campaign, we look forward to the future, which means there will always be work to do. Building the museum of tomorrow is an ongoing process. When you support FCMoD, you’re part of creating a place where everyone can learn about and enjoy science, history, culture, and nature; you help create opportunities for kids to be inspired to become future leaders in science and technology; and you’re part of building a world-class attraction that will be an economic benefit to our community for many years to come.

FCMoD is an Enterprise Zone Project, which permits a Colorado 25% tax credit for Colorado taxpayers who make cash contributions to Fort Collins Museum of Discovery. Your gift can benefit your family and your tax dollars!
The Enterprise Zone Program is a tax incentive to encourage job growth and contributions in our area. On March 11, 2010, the Office of Economic Development and International Trade approved Fort Collins Museum of Discovery (FCMoD) to be an Enterprise Zone Project.
Colorado State’s Enterprise Zone legislation permits a 25% tax credit, with an annual credit limit of $100,000, for Colorado taxpayers who make cash contributions to FCMoD. In-kind and stock contributions receive a 12.5% tax credit. The following example illustrates how a contribution of $1,000 may impact your federal and state tax liabilities thereby lessening the cost of your donation.
Please consult your financial advisor regarding deductibility as individual situations vary.
State law requires a Social Security or Colorado State ID number be provided to receive this credit. Download the Colorado Department of Revenue’s DR-0075 form here to complete with your name, address and social security number. Alternatively, you may call the Development Department with your social security number at (970) 416-2726. Please return the form or call us with your social security number within 45 days of donation date. Please know that FCMoD will keep your social security number in the highest confidence.
Pending final approval, you should receive a copy of the approved and executed form from the Larimer County Enterprise Zone Office within eight weeks of receipt of your completed form.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to call the Development Department directly at (970) 416-2216.
The digital dome theater is a high-impact venue to explore astronomy, biology, paleontology, physics, earth and climate science, as well as natural and cultural history, music, art, and many other subjects. The possibilities are limitless.
The digital dome theater is a remarkable community resource, and we invite you to help us to maintain and develop its full potential in the years to come. Your contribution to the fundraising drive will bring the stars that much closer. Are you ready to reach for the stars?
The goal of the community “Be a Star” campaign is to give our patrons an opportunity to sustain this important part of the museum experience. More people are becoming “Stars” every day. Consider becoming a star, or building on previous gifts to attain a higher level in the Digital Dome Universe by donating today!
