Giving Tuesday: Help us Help Wild Quail

By November 29, 2020 Articles

Dear Friend,

December 1, 2020 is Giving Tuesday, a day we hope you will consider making a special gift to the Rolling Plains Quail Research Foundation (“RPQRF”). Especially this year, nonprofits face many challenges and RPQRF depends on your charitable donations to fund our quail-saving work.

Will you help us help wild quail by making a year-end, tax deductible donation today?

Giving now means RPQRF’s work can continue uninterrupted to meet the needs of wild quail and provide landowners and other stakeholders with timely, relevant management recommendations for enhancing wild quail populations. And thankfully, there are more ways (and reasons) than ever to include RPQRF in your #GivingTuesday donations and year-end gifts.

Direct Donations: The Easiest Way to Give

Our website is ready to receive your online donation and will even let you schedule monthly recurring gifts to support RPQRF on a year-round basis. If you’d rather mail your gift, you’ll find the key details there, too. Click the button below to make a gift.

Limited-Time Tax Incentives

For the remainder of 2020, individuals may deduct monetary donations of up to 100% of their adjusted gross income (up from the previous limit of 60% of one’s AGI). This means your charitable gift to RPQRF can reduce your taxable income more than ever before! Corporations are similarly incentivized to donate to public charities, as they may deduct up to 25% of their taxable income, up from the previous limit of 10%.

This Temporary Suspension of Limits on Charitable Contributions only applies to cash gifts to public charities (like RPQRF). The new deduction limits do not apply to gifts to a private foundation or gifts of appreciated stock.

Corporate Matching Programs: Double Your Donation!

Many corporations offer employee matching gift programs to encourage their employees to give back to their communities. The programs vary from company to company, but under most programs, the companies financially match donations by their employees to nonprofit organizations like RPQRF. 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.

The impact of these corporate matching programs can be substantial, but many employees may not know their companies offer these matching gifts. If you are unsure whether your employer offers a matching gifting program, please inquire with your supervisor or human resources department to assess your eligibility. Then make a gift to RPQRF and ask your company to match it! Gifts can be mailed to:

Rolling Plains Quail Research Foundation
