Redemption for 2020: Oregon Charitable Checkoff

Date: Wednesday, February 3 2021
   Tax-filing season is upon us. With it comes a final opportunity to redeem 2020 by donating to an organization that truly looks out for its neighbors in communities across Oregon. Ask your tax  preparer to include 2020 Schedule OR-DONATE in your state forms, and consider a donation to charity code number 7, St. Vincent de Paul Society of Oregon. 
     When fully collected for 2020, the donations designated for St. Vincent de Paul of Oregon will be offered to volunteer groups (also known as conferences and district councils) as grants to expand existing programs or start new ones, either on their own or with a community partner. Entities in good standing that did not receive a grant in the previous cycle are eligible to apply, with decisions rendered by a committee of SVdP representatives from throughout Western Oregon. The committee goes to great lengths to fund every request at least partially.
