Dear RESET Supporter:
We’re releasing this special edition of our BLOG to share a few new opportunities you have to make a donation to RESET before the end of the year. Please consider participating in one or all of these programs, and make a difference in the lives of DC-area school children now and in the future.
December 1 is Giving Tuesday
Giving Tuesday is a global giving day that takes place every year on the first Tuesday in December. If this is the time of year you typically give to your favorite charities and nonprofits, please consider making a holiday donation to RESET on December 1. You can make donations on our web site: www.resetonline.org (click on the DONATE button on the right-hand top of our home page), or make a check payable to RESET, and mail to P.O. Box 9400, Washington, DC, 20016. Subject line: Giving Tuesday. Your gift is tax deductible and starts the giving season off on just the right note.
RESET is now registered with Amazon Smile, a charitable giving program that allows you to make a donation to RESET every time you make an online purchase with Amazon.com. It costs you nothing, signing up is a breeze, and you can continue to shop from Amazon’s wide range of products using your existing account. Log on to Amazon Smile at www.smile.amazon.com and then type “RESET DC” in the box to designate RESET as your charity of choice. Once you’ve designated RESET as your preferred charity, every time you buy something, the Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase to RESET. While you’re recovering from that second piece of pumpkin pie, take a few moments to sign up!
RESET recently initiated a new Planned Giving program that allows past and current volunteers, as well as other friends and supporters, to make RESET a beneficiary in their wills or estate plans. Making a bequest to RESET is an excellent way of ensuring that our work lives on well into the future, and it is a wonderful testament to what you value most. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Lyndi Schrecengost at 202-365-5963 or John Meagher at 703-250-0276.
Thanks so much for the many ways you give!
Stay tuned . . . RESET will be participating in the Washington area’s Combined Federal Campaign, so you’ll have another opportunity to give in 2016!
