It’s mid-December and the year is quickly coming to a close, but before you wave good-bye to 2020, consider making a gift to help your neighbours in need this holiday season.
“This year has been especially challenging for many living in our community,” said Kelly Ziegner, CEO & President, United Way Elgin Middlesex. “People are taking the time to reflect on the unique difficulties of the past year and want to give back.”
While few people choose to make a donation purely for tax reasons, just as many don’t realize that the true cost of making a gift is less than they imagine. That’s why United Way has updated its Tax Calculator for the 2020 calendar year. It can help you make smart decisions about your giving and the amount that is right for you, while maximizing your impact in the community.
For donors who make a first-time gift of $1,200 or more, United Way’s Leadership Challenge Grant matches the investment dollar for dollar, doubling your impact in the community! And for donors already at the Leadership level of $1,200, all increases to the gift are fully matched. Learn more about the Leadership Challenge Grant.
If you’re able, please give what you can. Every donation, no matter the amount, helps ensure United Way funded programs and services are there when people in our community need them most.
Thank you for are improving lives locally. Happy Holidays!
