First, thanks to an incredible $65,000 match, your gift today will have double the impact.
When you donate to the Ed Foundation today to support important staff and programs for all students, their match donors will make a dollar-for-dollar matching gift to fund tutoring for socio-economically disadvantaged youth in Santa Monica schools, up to $65,000. This match will run through December 18 and ensures students receive the academic help they need during distance learning.
Second, donating now ensures that your gift will be fully tax-deductible for 2020. And, don’t forget that because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the CARES Act allows you to deduct up to 100% of your adjusted gross income for charitable gifts this year.
You can make your donation online at smedfoundation.org.
Giving appreciated stock or donating through a donor advised fund can also be a very tax-advantageous way to support kids. Please call the Ed Foundation at 310-396-4557 to make arrangements.
