Giving Tuesday: Support Quail Research!

By November 30, 2021 Articles, Media

Today is Giving Tuesday, a day we hope you will consider making a special gift to the Rolling Plains Quail Research Foundation (RPQRF). As a non-profit, RPQRF is dependent on the generous contributions of individuals, agencies, foundations, and corporations. These annual commitments are incredibly important for our research and scientifically sound management recommendations we provide for supporting wild quail populations. If you love these birds as much as we do, we hope you’ll consider donating – no gift is too big or too small. 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 makes it easy to make an 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 learn more about how you can support the effort.

Limited-Time Tax Incentives

For the remainder of 2021, 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 (extended) 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 may be mailed to:
