Changes to our annual donation letter

By: Suzanne Holwitt

You should have recently received your 2018 tax donation letters from Jewish Federation of Greater Binghamton. Although the tax laws at the federal level have changed, under New York state law there are still deductions that are allowed, so the letters should be helpful.
Moving forward, we are making a change that we hope will help make things easier. Instead of getting an end-of-year letter showing your donation(s), we will be sending you a letter when we receive any donation that you make to the Federation (i.e. your generous pledge, or PJ Library, or in honor of, or in memory of, or for a special pledge drive). This letter will need to be placed in a folder by you with any other tax/donation information collected during the year. If you have made a donation since January 1 of this year, you should start to receive these letters.
Those of you making structured monthly contributions will receive your tax statements as usual in January.
I also want to thank our generous community for the support you have given to the Federation with your continued giving. This lets us know how much you appreciate all that we try to do for our community. I look forward to seeing you at many community events.
