Here is a great idea which one of our donors started. For her birthday, she asked her friends to donate to the Siskiyou Community Food Bank instead of buying her a gift and she donated as well. She requested her friends donate $40.00 each in hopes of raising $400.00.
This is perfect especially for those that do not want or need a gift (birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, in memory of, graduations, holidays, in honor of, etc.)
And, donations are tax deductible. Make sure to provide us with your name and mailing address and a donation statement will be mailed to you.
Helping others in need gives you a bonus on your taxes!!
Need a great reason to donate...Here it is!
Charitable Giving Incentives: On March 9, 2021, Senators and Representatives introduced the Universal Giving Pandemic Response and Recovery Act, 618 and H.R. 1704. When enacted, the legislation would allow taxpayers who claim the standard deduction, rather than itemizing deductions, on their tax returns to take a deduction for charitable giving valued at up to one-third of the standard deduction which is about $4,000 for an individual filer and $8,000 for married joint filers! This added giving incentive would be available for the tax years of 2021 and 2022!
