YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE AMERICAN INDIAN TO BE A MEMBER OF THE AIEBC
OR TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY EVENT

There are significant numbers of organizations asking for support, especially in Kansas City, Mo. so how are we any different? They believe their cause is just and every bit as important as anyone else’s and they are as passionate about what they believe in as we are, whether its to feed, clothe, train, job develop, business develop or simply to raise awareness, they are willing to call, meet or have breakfast, lunch or dinner to talk about it and so are we.You do not have to like me or the AIEBC personally as your reason not to help and It’s simply not enough to let the numbers, percentages or comparisons speak for themselves, since the AIEBC has been established I am quite sure that everyone is well aware of just how disenfranchised and fractured the American Indian community is and we are committed to bringing the same services and assistance to the American Indian Community.

Benefits to You for Giving to a Charity such as the AIEBC

While we believe at the AIEBC that your primary motivation to donate to charity should be altruism, we also think you should know that great tax benefits exist for those who give. Here are some of the benefits you should know about.

A gift to a qualified charitable organization may entitle you to a charitable contribution deduction against your income tax if you itemize deductions.

If the gifts are deductible, the actual cost of the donation is reduced by your tax savings. For example, if you are in the 33% tax bracket, the actual cost of a $100 donation is only $67 ($100 less the $33 tax savings). As your income tax bracket increases, the real cost of your charitable gift decreases, making contributions more attractive for those in higher brackets. The actual cost to a person in the lowest bracket, 15%, for a $100 contribution is $85. For a person in the highest bracket, 35%, the actual cost is only $65. Not only can the wealthy afford to give more, but they receive a larger reward for giving.

There are limits to how much you can deduct, but they’re very high.

For most people, the limits on charitable contributions don’t apply. Only if you contribute more than 20% of your adjusted gross income to charity is it necessary to be concerned about donation limits. If the contribution is made to a public charity such as the AIEBC, the deduction is limited to 50% of your contribution base. For example, if you have an adjusted gross income of $100,000, your deduction limit for that year is $50,000.

Rules exist for non-cash donations.

If you contribute property owned for more than one year, the value of the deduction is normally equal to the property’s fair market value. You have an advantage when you contribute appreciated property because you get a deduction for the full fair market value of the property. You are not taxed on any of the appreciation, so, in effect, you receive a deduction for an amount that you never reported as income.
