Why You Should Donate to Educational Foundation for Independence

1. You really CAN make a difference!

Your donations will go towards providing educational opportunities to students with varying exceptionalities across a wide range of personalized environments. What can be more fulfilling than giving to someone who needs the help? Can you make any more of a difference than that?

2. Giving now is better than giving in the future.

It may seem like a small amount now, but a dollar today is worth more than a dollar tomorrow. Don’t wait to give to charity. The donation of $100 may have a sizeable impact on you now, but it will have more considerable impact on the charity than if you wait five years to give that $100. Inflation knocks that value down to about $85.

3. Charity donations are tax-deductible.

Charitable contributions made to qualified organizations may help lower your tax bill. Educational Foundation for Independence is a Nonprofit Corporation, 501(c) (3). The IRS Individuals who donate are able to deduct up to 30 percent of their adjusted gross income.

Corporations making a charitable contribution to 501 (c) (3) organizations are allowed to deduct all contributions up to an amount typically equal to ten percent of their taxable income.

4. You’ll help yourself at the same time.

Studies show that when individuals spend money on gifts for friends or charitable organizations, their happiness increases. Statistical analyses revealed personal spending had no link with a person’s happiness, while spending on others and charity was significantly related to a boost in happiness.

5. Be a leader, not a follower.

If your friends know you’re giving to charity, they’ll be encouraged as well. This is your chance to truly make a difference.
