Highlights of Community Foundation Week 2020
To celebrate the week, the Foundation organized a number of events and announements that took place November 12-18 – here’s a recap:
Additionally, during the week, the Foundation issued a call for proposals for the 2021 CBK Small Grants Program, announced the creation of the Rizzo Family Memorial Fund – a new scholarship fund, and shared a special “Thank You” to Robert Schneider – our now-retired Executive Director – for his years of service to the Foundation and the community.
Our Interim Executive Director Jane Harrington-Heide joined Kenneth Fellman, President of the Foundation’s Board of Directors and Tom Clark, a Foundation donor, on WGTD Radio’s “Community Matters” program on November 14 at 11:15 am to discuss the Community Foundation’s programs and charitable giving options.
Something to Consider: #$300before2020ends
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act provides increased tax incentives for charitable giving for both individuals and corporations, signifying an intent to stimulate philanthropy throughout America.
For 2020 only, all taxpayers can claim an additional, “above-the-line” deduction for charitable gifts made in cash of up to $300 to not-for-profit organizations.
Please consider donating #300before2020ends to the not-for-profit organizations that you believe in.
