BENEFITING: City-Wide Tax Assistance Program
Did you know that many families live on $15,000 and still have a smile on their faces? Did you know that there are many really nice volunteers who want to help those families by doing their taxes and helping them get thousands of dollars in refunds and credits each year?
Even if you know both of those things, you might not know that it is getting harder for Ladder Up to set up these sessions so that volunteers can connect with Chicagoland residents who are working really hard and need help with their taxes this year. Funding is down across the board, but our investment in them has a 2900% return in financial benefits for working families and students. That's right - $29 go into the community for every dollar that goes into the organization.
If you can give to Ladder Up RIGHT NOW (read: by January 11th), there will be some immediate benefits for you:
- If you donate $25 or more, you will be entered in a drawing to receive a hand-crafted card from me.
- If you donate $50 or more, in addition to being eligible for the card, you will also be eligible to receive a pizza of your choice, delivered to your house.
