#GivingTuesday – Save Open Space in Newton!

#GivingTuesday - Save Open Space in Newton!


Tuesday, 12/01/2020    
All Day

#GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world that will take place this year on December 1, 2020. At a time when we are all experiencing the pandemic, generosity is what brings people of all races, faiths, and political views together across the globe. Generosity gives everyone the power to make a positive change in the lives of others and is a fundamental value anyone can act on.  Newton Conservators is proud to be a part of this global celebration of giving.  We hope you will consider supporting our advocacy, education, outreach, and efforts for our open spaces with a donation or membership on #GivingTuesday.

Perhaps consider joining the Newton Conservators (or renewing at a higher level if you are already a member), or purchasing a gift membership for someone else who is passionate about open space.  You can renew or join the Newton Conservators online  to help us to continue this important work in 2021, our 60th Anniversary year!  You may join by contributing as little as $35 a year, but larger contributions are gratefully appreciated!

Newton Conservators is a 501c(3) charitable organization, and all membership contributions and other donations are tax deductible as provided by law, as no goods or services are provided in exchange for your gift.  Did you know the recent CARES Act Expands Tax Deductions for Charitable Giving?

  • If you do not itemize deductions, you may nonetheless take an “above-the-line” deduction for up to $300 in cash gifts you make in 2020 to the Newton Conservators.
  • If you do itemize, you may deduct up to the entire amount of your adjusted gross income (AGI) for cash gifts you make in 2020, without reference to the 60 percent limitation that would otherwise apply.
