In the spirit of Dave Letterman's list of 10's, we offer this guide to wrapping up

10 Reasons to offer an "End of the Year"contribution to
Buckelew Programs.


10. You'll enjoy a tax write off. This will be important in April. (Rules may be changing next year.)

9. Be a role model. Teach your kids about philanthropy. 
They’ll learn that we can all make a difference.

8. Short on cash? Donate stock that has increased in value since you bought it
more than a year ago – and if you itemize deductions -- you can take a charitable deduction for the stock's fair market value on the day you give it away.

7. Get your cousin Fred's car out of your driveway.
Make a charitable donation of vehicles, running or not. Super easy!

6. Clear the cash that's cluttering your sock drawer-
We're continuing to fundraise to furnish The New Helen Vine Recovery Center.
Follow "the build".

5. Double your effectiveness.
Many employers will match charitable gifts made by their employees
– does yours?
