2016 might be quickly (how is it almost New Years Eve?!) coming to an end, but there is still plenty of time to give back and make the future of a youth in Larimer County bright. So while there still might be gifts to buy and stockings to hang, the year isn't over yet. Together, we can give back before getting from others.
Here are five reasons why end of the year giving will always land you on the nice list.
It makes you feel good.
There's a lot of bad things in this world, but that doesn't mean you have to succumb to it. You know what makes you feel good? Doing good. No matter the amount of money or the length of time, giving to charities helps put a little sunshine and warmth back into the world. And who doesn't like sunshine and warmth? (Especially in these Colorado winters...)
Donating to the BGCLC qualifies for the Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit.
When you make a donation to the BGCLC, you can reduce your taxes through the Colorado Child Care Contribution Credit. This means that in addition to the standard Federal and State Income Tax deductions, the credit provides a 50 percent state tax credit for donations made to the BGCLC. Learn more about the CCCCTC here.
As little as a $10 donation gives one youth a full-year membership to a Club Unit.
$10! That's all it takes to give one youth in Larimer County a full-year of programs, hours of fun and a safe environment to grow in. While $10 might not seem like much, it supplies 365 days of having somewhere to call home.
You'll be a leader/motivator for others.
Have kids or a partner who looks up to you? Be their #givingback leader this holiday season. Make like Rudolph and lead that sleigh of holiday cheer.
Volunteering counts as #givingback if you can't give money.
Aren't able to part with funds this year? Totally OK! Grab some friends and volunteer for a few hours this holiday season...the more the merrier we always say. #timeismoneytoo
