Your membership is tax-deductible according to rules outlined by the IRS. Please note that acceptance of your membership benefits may affect the tax deductibility of that gift. The amount of the contribution that is deductible for federal income tax purposes is limited to the excess of any money (and the value of other property other than money) contributed over the fair market value of goods or services provided by the Texas Mountain Trail. Please consult your tax advisor with questions.
To keep our fundraising costs as low as possible and retain more funding for our programs, FirstGiving will ask you in the donation process if you'd like to add the processing fee to your membership gift. This is an entirely voluntary option we hope you consider. If you agree, the fee will equate to 7.69% of your gift. Thank you for considering this step!
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
