INVEST IN CALIFORNIA’S FUTURE LEADERS.
CONTRIBUTE TO Y&G WHEN YOU FILE YOUR CALIFORNIA STATE TAXES.
Did you know you can contribute to California YMCA Youth & Government when you file your California state income taxes?
California law allows taxpayers to contribute money by checking a box on your state income tax return. Contributions will be deducted from your return or added to the amount owed. Donations made through the tax checkoff may be claimed on a charitable contribution on your returns the following year.
HOW TO CONTRIBUTE:
When completing your State Tax Form 540, look for the California YMCA Youth & Government fund online under “Voluntary Contributions”. Indicate an amount, ($1 increments) that you would like to contribute. That amount will either be deducted from your refund or you will add it to the amount you owe when making your payment.
If someone else prepared your income tax returns, remember to tell him or her that you want to donate to the California YMCA Youth & Government online (TBD).
Funds received through the Tax Checkoff for California YMCA Youth & Government will be used to expand programming offerings and fund scholarships for underserved youth.
California YMCA Youth & Government celebrates the successes of our graduates by recognizing the following:
- 88% received a bachelor’s degree or higher
