JWHA will celebrate its 50th Anniversary in 2022.

In preparation for the celebration, the JWHA Board of Directors set a strategic plan goal that states, “Begin planning to create a dynamic and memorable 50th Anniversary.”

At the spring 2019 board meeting a 50th anniversary fundraiser, $50,000 for the 50th (50K for the 50th), was approved. This fundraiser will continue over the next four years, 2019 to 2022. The JWHA finance committee asked our current board to make matching contributions before the 2019 fall conference to get things started.

The board responded to that request … resulting in $21,500 in pledges. So future donations of $21,500 will be double the amount to $43,000.

We are inviting JWHA members to participate in the 50K for the 50th fundraiser. You can donate now or pledge thru 2022. We just started and we are about half-way toward our goal before the official kickoff. GREAT!

Please use the donate button to help us track our goal and update the membership of our progress and how these funds are proposed to be used for the celebration. Choose to a one-time contribution or a make a pledge for 2019-2022.

Donations and pledges will be accepted through 2022 to allow current and future members a chance to participate.

JWHA does not give tax advice, but as a 501(c)3 organization it is possible under certain tax codes that a donor could claim a charitable deduction.

While JWHA will issue receipts, it is incumbent on the individual member (and would solely be the responsibility of the member) to consult with a tax preparer for the appropriate way to make any claim.

The issuance of a receipt is ordinary practice for any 501(c)3 organization, and does not in itself constitute “tax advice.”
