The Basalt Area Gives campaign is currently in full swing, and its founders are hoping Basalt residents will donate a portion of their TABOR tax refunds to local community organizations.

The campaign's goal is to increase local philanthropic giving by raising $1,000,000 or more through pledged TABOR refunds, with $500,000 specifically dedicated to longterm support of Basalt area nonprofits via the Aspen Community Foundation.

With dedicated coverage of stories and issues affecting Basalt residents, Aspen Public Radio is proud to be a beneficiary of the Basalt Area Gives campaign.
