Project GiveBack: Make a difference and win for YOUR charity!

Last Updated on

Times are hard, financially, for a lot of people today. Charities are seeing a significan drop in donations as more and more families struggle to put food on their plates and pay their bills. Everyone has their own personal issues that are important to them…child abuse, homeless pets, saving the environment, getting medical care to underprivilidges countries…there are just so many causes to support and people who need help. I just wanted to write a few words to bring awareness to a new foundation called Giveback.org  which will make charitable giving a little easier. In 2010, Stephen launched the Give Back Foundation, a 501(c)3 public charity created to help people give back. Here is some more information about them from the website:

The Give Back Foundation (EIN 26-2449481) was established to allow any person to join GiveBack and set up their personal foundation account. The funds that accumulate in that account are part of the Give Back Foundation. Each member has the ability to direct the funds from their account to any charity in good standing with the United States Internal Revenue Service.

Together, all of the members’ accounts are gathered under one Give Back Foundation account awaiting the direction of each member. The members can give their money away whenever they choose, either as a single donation or as part of a group of people coming together to support a cause. 100% of the money that is directed to a charity is sent to the charity. The Give Back Foundation doesn’t charge you or the charity anything for the transaction.

Any money that a member adds directly into their GiveBack account is immediately tax deductible to the full extent allowed. Any additional money that may be added, either by our corporate sponsors or other individuals, is not deductible by the member. At year end the Give Back Foundation will issue every member a consolidated giving statement that may be used as an IRS tax receipt.         

Right now, the Give Back Foundation is having their 100 days of giving campaign!
Every day for 100 Days through July 16, 2011, one GiveBack member will be randomly chosen to win $1000 which will be contributed to their personal foundation. They have also created an Impact Points system to track members who spread the word about GiveBack and get others to join. At the end of the 100 Days of Giving campaign, GiveBack will award a $50,000 prize for the member who has earned the most Impact Points. Winners will have the money deposited to their GiveBack account and can then donate it to a charity or charities of their choice.
