Support YWCA Today
During this time of isolation and stress, the threat of domestic violence may increase for many in our community. Thank you for supporting YWCA during the COVID-19 epidemic to ensure our services remain steady and available when needed most.
The recently passed law includes several charitable tax provisions to encourage giving. These include:
- A new deduction for charitable donors who do not itemize when filing their tax returns. If you do not itemize but make a gift to charity, you will be allowed to take a special tax deduction, up to $300, to reduce your tax liability.
- An increase in the deduction limit up to 100% of a donor’s annual income for cash gifts (previously the deduction was capped at 60% of annual income). If you make a gift you will be able to deduct more this year.
What your gift can do:
- $100 provides one week of food and nourishment for a survivor and child in our emergency shelter. ($9 a month.)
- $500 provides a survivor fleeing a violent relationship with 10 days of a hotel stay when our shelters have reached maximum capacity or when a survivor identifies as male. ($42 a month.)
- $1,000 provides beds, blankets, linens, and household essentials for a survivor and her children when they move out of our shelter and into their new home and away from their abuser. ($84 a month.)
- $5,000 provides one year of safe housing and supportive services for a survivor and child including counseling, legal support, job readiness, and emergency childcare. ($417 a month.)
You are about to make an incredible difference in the lives of the women, children, and families we serve at YWCA Spokane. Thank you for your cherished support!
As shared in a thank you card received by a client recently, our passion at YWCA Spokane is to create safe spaces for those we serve to heal, learn, grow, and thrive. This passion can only become a reality with your support.
