A lot happens at the end of the year- people are taking back gifts they didn’t ask for, accounting departments are scrambling to get in those last numbers, and Christmas trees are coming down. But, what are we missing? What about nonprofit organizations? Lucky you, we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, so we have some great advice.
At the end of the year, nonprofit organizations are in a unique position. Not only are we working to start off the next year ahead, but they are able to help others with tax return deductions. Did you know that giving a donation now will pay off in just a few months when you begin filing your 2017 taxes? We would encourage you to find a nonprofit that exemplifies the passions you have. However, chances are that our passion at the ēCO Credit Union Foundation may match yours if you are reading this right now.
We want to be very open with you. We would be honored to be the nonprofit organization that is chosen to receive your gift in these last few days of 2017. Let us show you some of the impact our donors have had in the greater Birmingham community just in ONE YEAR.
We are so proud of the accomplishments 2017 has given to us. But, we are nothing without our donors. Literally. We are at $0 without our donors. I don’t know if you’ve heard, but $0 doesn’t get you very far (even if you are a master at budgeting). Would you consider making a donation to increase financial literacy in the greater Birmingham area in 2018? Click anywhere above or below where you see the word “Donate” to be routed to our PayPal account. We are watching financial education change lives- young and old, upper and middle class, every race and background. Consider giving today to change legacies to come.
(P.S. If you’re still on the fence about giving to the Foundation, just click the “Donate” tab and watch the video. Let the people who have benefited from donations tell you how much your donation matters!)
