Make Charitable Tax Extenders Permanent 

Friday, June 13, 2014 8:47:50 AM

Your simple advocacy efforts are needed today to help the Foodbank ensure that our generous donors will continue to receive beneficial tax breaks for their donations to charities. The U.S. House of Representatives is likely to vote soon on several important charitable giving provisions, which will:

  • increase charitable giving

  • improve food donation tax incentives, championed by Feeding America

  • protect tax benefits that have been in place by making them permanent

Please join the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank and Feeding America by sending a message to your local representative requesting that he or she vote "yes" on these critical measures. The message has already been prepared for you by Independent Sector- you only need to type in your zip code to find your representative and hit send. Make your voice heard now.
