Each year, CFS plans multiple fundraising events to financially support our mission. With the current crisis, in person fundraising events are on hold indefinitely. We want you to stay home and stay safe.
While Giving Tuesday is typically held the first Tuesday after Black Friday, this new and urgent need brought the Giving Tuesday campaign to May 5, 2020 as GivingTuesdayNow. We are participating in this global campaign to draw awareness of the financial need that many non-profits are experiencing, as well as ask that you consider a donation to CFS during this critical time. In order for our operations to continue we need to seek new ways to provide revenue lost from events.
We hope you will support our agency today so that we continue serving our community in the future.
To bolster charitable giving in a time of economic downturn, a $300 above-the-line tax deduction for charitable giving was approved in the CARES Act, eligible to both itemizers and non-itemizers alike. This is not a permanent provision and will expire at the end of tax year 2020. The hope is that this will spur more charitable giving in our communities in 2020, to make up for lost revenue. Now is the perfect time to donate to CFS! Donations can be made securely on our website utilizing the button provided above.
