Benefits of Donating

There are many benefits to donating to RHP. It just feels good, for starters, knowing you are supporting a local cause you believe in and want to see succeed. But there is one more benefit: Rutherford Housing Partnership has been designated a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), which offers tax benefits.

Now keep in mind we are not tax professionals and, therefore, cannot give tax advice on how your particular donation can help you on your taxes. When you donate to RHP, we will provide you with a tax-deduction letter documenting your donation and reporting our designation as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and you can take that to your tax professional. 

There also are some good articles online that explain the benefits of donation far better than we can. Here are a few of our favorites:
