For our wonderful volunteers and supporters:
Please make sure that you are recording your mileage and contributions. Especially folks who volunteers day in and day out like Uniform sales folks and others. Since we are a 501c3 organization, some of the expenses you incur can be considered tax deductible. Record mileage especially. You can learn more about it at https://www.irs.gov/uac/newsroom/tips-for-taxpayers-who-travel-for-charity-work

Another publication, although a bit long, is also worth looking at.
https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p526.pdf

You can confirm our PTO's tax deductibility at this link

If you have not watched it already, please take time out to watch PBS's Nova that was broadcast tonight, especially the parts about middle school and Highschool. A lit bit long but every bit useful.
