Year-end giving update

Year-end giving update

With the deadline for making a year-end gift coming soon, we wanted to share important information about giving in 2020.

CARES Act and your contributions

As part of the CARES Act that was signed into law earlier this year, individuals who do not normally itemize deductions may deduct up to $300 in charitable cash contributions. This universal charitable deduction is an above-the-line deduction and is deducted from the taxpayer’s income prior to the calculation of adjusted gross income. This deduction is in addition to the standard deduction.

Lima Rescue Mission is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and your contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law. We are also accredited by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA). As a member, we must faithfully demonstrate compliance with established standards for financial accountability, transparency, ethical fundraising and sound board governance.

Our source of funding

The Mission is a faith-based organization. All funding comes directly from individuals, businesses, churches and other organizations who want to be involved in helping the homeless and less fortunate in our community. We do not receive any funding from the government or other agencies. Your support allows this ministry to continue, and we are thankful for faithful friends who join us in caring for the needs of others.

Sending your gift

To support our ministry, you can donate online now, or mail a check to:

Lima Rescue Mission
216 E. Wayne Street
Lima, OH 45801

Please be sure checks are mailed early enough to be postmarked by December 31. Thank you for joining us to help others in a time of need!
