Max the Match!

.
Don't leave FREE money on the table, maximize the benefit of your employer's matching program to support non-profits like The LOFT.
There's a high probability that your company will match what you've donated to non-profits like The LOFT.

See in seconds if your company has a match program: https://www.loftgaycenter.org/company_match_program
.
Corporate matching gifts are a type of philanthropy in which companies financially match donations that their employees make to nonprofit organizations.
When an employee makes a donation, they’ll request the matching gift from their employer, who then makes their own donation. Companies usually match donations at a 1:1 ratio, but some will match at a 2:1, 3:1, or even a 4:1 ratio.

Support The LOFT: Be a G.E.M. Donor

 

Make a HUGE impact over time by donating in smaller amounts every month that add up to a large amount that helps The LOFT, while getting you a nice tax deduction in the process! Start as low as $10 or $25 a month!

Special Tax Deduction Benefit

Under the temporary law, taxpayers don't need to itemize deductions on their tax returns to take advantage of this, which creates tax-favorable donation options not normally available to about 90 percent of tax filers.

Ordinarily, people who choose to take the standard deduction cannot claim a deduction for their charitable contributions. But this special provision permits them to claim a limited deduction on their 2021 federal income tax returns for cash contributions made to qualifying charitable organizations by year's end, December 31, 2021.
