As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, your donations can be tax deductible. Your gift, no matter how small (OR LARGE), is very much appreciated and will be put to good use.


Have your stock and mutual fund investments done well, as many have seen in the past year?


Tax advisors tell us you should strongly consider donating appreciated securities instead of cash. If you donate appreciated stock that you have held for more than a year, you can deduct the full market value of the stock from your taxable income without paying any taxes on the capital gains. It results in a "triple bonus": a charitable deduction AND avoiding tax on the unrealized capital gains of the donated stock for you, AND it may allow you to make a bigger gift in a year when we need it most.


Check with your tax advisor, and then contact us for instructions



Double the impact of your gift!  Many employers match charitable contributions and volunteer hours made by their employees, and in some cases will also match donations made by spouses, retirees and board members.  It is important to know that often times the matching gift process must be initiated by you, the donor. Please check with your company’s Human Resources Department on how you can make a matching gift possible. This simple process has a tremendous impact on the strength of our programs.
