Can I see the financial reports of your organization?
Is my donation tax deductible?
Yes! Eastside Meals on Wheels is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, so your donation is 100% tax deductible. Our tax ID is 41-1228367.
How can I find out if my employer matches donations?
Even if you’re not aware of a matching donation policy, check with your human resources or payroll department to see if a program exists. Some companies have matching gift policies that aren’t broadly advertised.
Taking advantage of a workplace giving program is a great way to multiply the impact of your donation. Many employers provide matching gifts, so it pays to check with your company to see if they’ll match your contribution.
