Tax program supports Bong Center fund
H&R Block's nonprofit referral program generated donations for a local nonprofit this year, The Bong P-38 Fund. The program awarded area nonprofits with $20 for each new client they referred to H&R Block for tax preparation. The Bong p-38 Fund received a total of $4,920 through the program.
"Nearly 2,200 nonprofit organizations nationwide participated in the H&R Block nonprofit referral program," said Sandra Newman, district general manager. "Giving back is part of H&R Block's culture. Whether it's free tax advice, a community service project or a financial donation, H&R Block invests in the communities it serves."
Nonprofit organizations often see charitable donations increase toward the end of the year as taxpayers maximize their yearly tax deduction for donations. This program provides area nonprofits with an opportunity to raise funds at the beginning of the year when private donations traditionally decline.
Organizations may sign up now to benefit next year by contacting their local H&R Block or Block Advisors office or visiting www.hrblockreferrals.com.
