Membership fees alone do not cover the full administrative and program costs. ERCV must gain additional funding from other sources - foundations, grants, individuals, members, and non-members.
ERCV is an IRS designated 501(c)(3) charitable organization, thus gifts to ERCV are tax deductible. Gifts may be made in honor or memory of others, in support of the sliding fee membership program, or to underwrite general operating expenses. Membership dues, however, are not tax deductible when services are provided in return for payment.
Become an annual giver for general operations. We are grateful for generous annual gifts from service and social members, and others who want to provide some extra “insurance” that ERCV will be there for residents when they need it most. Since these gifts are over and above membership fees, the extra amount is tax-deductible.
Sign up for Social Membership. ERCV offers a Social Membership program (Basic ($200 - individual, $300 household) and Sustaining ($500 - individual, $750 household)) for those who wish to become part of the upper Ward 4 social network but don’t feel the need for volunteer services. Annual dues for the Sustaining Social Membership program are the same as for regular membership. This membership can be converted to a service membership at no additional cost. No services are provided, therefore all of the dues amounts is eligible for a charitable tax deduction on your federal and state income tax return.
