Annual Campaign 2020 - NATURE PROVIDES HOPE
YOUR GIFT IS SO IMPORTANT DURING THIS TIME OF UNCERTAINTY
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!
At a time when we all struggle to understand the events happening around the world, it is important to recognize the positive effect of nature to our physical and emotional well-being. When isolation threatens to disconnect us from the normalcy of our day-to-day lives, it is nature that can provide us connections to a greater purpose.
Know that with each dollar you give, you are facilitating the efforts of Grass River Natural Area to touch the lives of thousands each year through nature exploration and to 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 long after the uncertainty passes.
Federal Charitable Giving Incentive: The federal coronavirus tax relief bill allows taxpayers to claim up to $300 of total charitable cash contributions as a tax deduction on their 2020 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 60 percent of adjusted gross income to 100 percent. For corporations, the law raises the annual limit from 10 percent to 25 percent. "
