As 2016 draws to a close, most of us are busier than we'd like. Between Christmas shopping, visiting friends and family, and looking forward to the New Year, we find ourselves strapped for a free moment. With so much extra activity, it’s easy to lose track of time, and watch December 31st come and go without making your donation to Kurn Hattin. We gladly accept donations all year round, and starting the New Year with a generous donation is always appreciated. We wanted to make you aware of a potential benefit if you are planning to give. Postmark your donation by December 31st to make it a charitable tax deduction on your 2016 taxes. When you get your donation in and postmarked by December 31st, it allows you to include this gift in your 2016 taxes, so you won’t have to wait an entire year. If you’re like most taxpayers, you want your charitable deductions to take effect as soon as possible, and luckily there’s still time to make that happen for your 2016 taxes.
Where Does My Donation Go?
If you’re new to Kurn Hattin Homes for Children, we provide a safe environment for children who are experiencing a challenging time in their home lives and may be missing that sense of belonging that is so important early on in life. Our programs and services include residential care, health services, professional counseling, family outreach, complete schooling and academics, music and arts, and athletics. We also have a farm where children interact with animals, learn horsemanship, and the value of planting and harvesting their own food.
Helping Create a Better World for Everyone
Kurn Hattin provides a safe and nurturing environment, whether enrolled as residential or day student. Our goal is to teach children critical life skills that will allow them to go out into the real world and succeed. The Homes has been around for over 120 years. The work we accomplish is due to donations from people just like you. The financial support we receive has allowed us to continue our work transforming the lives of children. Every child deserves the opportunity to grow and learn in a safe and peaceful environment; every donation increases the likelihood of reaching more children.
Easy Online Donations
Keep in mind that in 2016, December 31st falls on a Saturday, so be sure to check with your local post office to ensure your donation is postmarked in time. If it seems as though your holiday schedule just won’t allow for you to get to the post office, you can take advantage of our convenient online donation platform and still be able to claim your donation on your 2016 taxes.
Whichever method you choose, feel at ease knowing your money is going to a wonderful cause, and that you are helping to shape the lives of the adults of tomorrow.
