Give Where You Live

Now more than ever, the need in our community is great. The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered an extreme economic downturn, extraordinary business closures, and record level of unemployment. But there is still much we can do to help our community to heal and recover.

Fully 80% of the contributions given in the United States are given by individuals like you who decide to make a difference. People who have a little extra to share are helping their neighbors in need every day. Those who truly want to see the Valley prosper and to improve our local way of life can make a meaningful difference by giving locally and generously.

To encourage local giving for causes in the Valley, we are conducting the Give Where You Live campaign from now through December 31, 2020.

It is time to act fast to take advantage of unparalleled giving incentives enacted by the federal government through the CARES Act to incentivize charitable giving in this time of economic crisis:

  • Eligible individuals who do not itemize may deduct up to $300.
  • The maximum deduction for those who do itemize has been increased from 60% to 100% for this year.
  • The maximum charitable contributions for C Corporations has increased from 10% to 25% for 2020.

Eligibility and restrictions apply. Consult your tax professional for advice.

If you have the means to share in this important work that builds our neighborhoods into thriving communities, then there is no better time than now and now better place than The Valley Economic Alliance. Please complete the form below to make your tax-deductible contribution today.

Establish Your Legacy

Have you ever considered what the Valley of the future will look like? In the tradition of Dr. David Burbank, Isaac Newton Van Nuys, Isaac Lankershim, and so many others, you can make your mark on the future forever by including a planned gift in your estate plan today. Through a gift of real estate, highly appreciated stock, or life insurance we can help you to establish a trust, donor-advised fund which creates your own family foundation by which you can contribute to the long-term growth and well-being of the Valley long into the future.
