Annual Campaign 2021 - NATURE PROVIDES HOPE
GRNA, Inc.'s Annual Campaign supports all that we do to meet our mission: to manage Grass River Natural Area, conserve and protect its watershed, and provide opportunities that increase knowledge, appreciation, and community-wide stewardship of the natural environment. This includes management of GRNA's natural resources, trail maintenance, invasive species control, stream surveying, wildlife monitoring, school field trips, wetland curriculum, summer camp, homeschool programs, and an abundance of public programming for all ages and abilities!
Over the last year, it became more evident than ever how vital the positive effect of nature is to people's physical and emotional well-being. Visitor numbers soared at GRNA despite the lack of on site programs. When isolation threatened to disconnect us from the normalcy of our day-to-day lives, it was nature that provided connection and solace.
Each dollar you give facilitates the efforts of Grass River Natural Area to touch the lives of thousands each year through nature exploration and helps us preserve the valuable GRNA lands for future generations. Please help us continue to sustain our solid foundation and send in your tax-deductible contribution today! As an added incentive you may choose to make payments so your donation becomes an affordable monthly contribution.
Two things are certain. Nature will always provide a place of hope, and Grass River Natural Area will be here to provide a place for you to immerse yourself in nature.
Federal Charitable Giving Incentive: The federal coronavirus tax relief bill allows taxpayers to claim up to $300 (or $600 for those who file jointly) of total charitable cash contributions as a tax deduction on their 2021 taxes even if they are not itemizing. This is known as an "above-the-line deduction", which means the donation is deducted from your taxable income before it is taxed. "The law also lifts the existing cap on annual contributions for those who itemize, raising it from 50 percent of adjusted gross income to 100 percent. For corporations, the law raises the annual limit from 10 percent to 25 percent. "
