Hooves for Hope = Steps for Change
The tax legislation currently pending in Congress will impact most taxpayers and also presents a unique opportunity for 2017 year-end giving.
Here are few tax implications you might consider as the year comes to a close:
- The tax reform increases the standard deduction so that fewer individuals will itemize deductions in 2018. If you are unlikely to itemize your deductions under the proposed new law, consider making a gift in 2017.
- In 2018, many taxpayers will have a lower tax rate. To maximize the charitable deduction, consider making or accelerating your gifts in 2017.
- Donor-advised funds allow you to make a gift now and choose in 2018 which one of our causes to support. We can help you create a donor-advised donation before the year ends.
- The last day of donation 2017 is SUNDAY, December 31.
Beyond Boundaries provides therapy services that utilize horses to help local children and adults conquer the physical, mental and emotional boundaries associated with disabilities. Our clients are your friends and neighbors with the greatest need, who gain the most benefit from the services we provide. These services could not be provided without the support of our donors and no matter how large or small, EVERY gift we receive is important to us. We pledge to honor your donation by being good stewards of the funds we raise to directly support the children and adults that depend on us.
With your support we can continue to provide the best treatments and support to children and adults, who might otherwise not receive therapy.
Expenses related to caring for our herd are constant: veterinary costs, farrier (horseshoe) costs, food and equipment. Is it in your heart and budget to sponsor a member of our herd and cover these costs on a monthly basis? Sponsoring one of our riders will cover monthly riding fees if you prefer!
Donations that could cover a new helmet, safety belt, halter or other necessary equipment are also needed and equally appreciated. Below is the 2018 Beyond Boundaries Wish List which includes the approximate cost required to fulfill each wish.
We have many exciting and ambitious plans for 2018, but cannot reach our full potential without YOU and your support.
Thank you for your time and consideration in helping to improve the lives of others and allowing us to continue our amazing programs for our riders.
We wish you the happiest of holidays and many blessings for the New Year!
