Year End Giving for Tax Savings

With the end of 2015 quickly approaching, you may be considering a charitable gift that can generate income tax deductions which could help reduce your income tax bill. Please consider that a philanthropic gift to Trident Academy could produce tax savings for you while providing vital resources for students with learning differences. Time is short — only gifts made by December 31, 2015, can help reduce the amount of taxes you will owe this coming April. Since our school is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, your gift to Trident Academy is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
