YSS Giving Tuesday Campaign
GIVING TUESDAY IS HERE!
During this time of year we look forward to spending time with our loved ones and giving thanks for all of the blessings in our lives. Unfortunately, not everyone has had the good fortune to experience the same blessings. As the season for giving thanks is upon us, we can’t help but think about the children and families who will be left out in the cold without shelter, food, and warmth.
With winter quickly approaching, this becomes a matter of life and death. This is the perfect time for you to be a blessing. Today is Giving Tuesday, an annual day to give to non-profits and help others. Thanks to an anonymous donor, every donation you make today will be matched dollar for dollar up to $15,000. All donations will go to providing assistance to those in need. You can also make an in-kind donation of boots, shoes, coats, blankets, hats, gloves, scarves, or any warm clothing. To make an in-kind donation, please call 304-233-9627.
Every year, YSS applies for tax credits through the West Virginia Development Office’s Neighborhood Investment Program (NIP). This year, YSS was granted $48,000 in NIP tax credits that they can distribute to anyone who files a WV tax return and donates $500 or more.
The Neighborhood Investment Program was established by the West Virginia legislature in 1996 to increase charitable giving to local non-profit organizations. The program allows 501 (c) (3) charitable organizations to apply for tax credit vouchers, which they then distribute to individuals and businesses who contribute to organizations. Contributions can be in the form of cash, personal property, real estate, stock, and in-kind professional services and the minimum donation is $500. You will receive 50% of your charitable contribution in tax credits. For example, a donation of $500, you would receive $250 in tax credits. Credits are distributed on a first come, first served basis.
To make a monetary donation, please visit HERE, send a check to P.O. Box 6041, Wheeling, WV 26003 or you can drop off a check at 87 15th Street Wheeling, WV 26003.
Any donation is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your continued support!
