Twin Valley Senior Center joins with Community Thrives to raise funds for their new Community Pavilion.
As a strong supporter of Twin Valley Seniors, help us raise funds to build a pavilion to serve you and your neighbors. The pavilion will give the center a place for serving food, holding classes and hosting a variety of events. Also, it will be a place for our community to hold weddings, family reunions and other gatherings.
We are participating in A Community Thrives program sponsored by Gannett Media foundation (USA Today , Burlington Free Press). To be eligible for a grant between $25,000 and $100,000 we must raise funds between September 21st and October 16th. Donations after this period will also help, but do not count in this challenge period. All donations, regardless of date given will go toward the project.
Your donation by credit card or Pay Pal can be made at the following web site:
Every dollar counts. We thank you for your support.
Twin Valley Seniors is located at 4583 Route 2 , East Montpelier in the building known as Blueberry Commons. We do not charge any membership or service fees to our seniors since we believe this encourages the maximum number of elders to get involved with our Center. We also have free door-to-door transportation for residents in the towns we serve.
Therefore, we depend heavily on your generosity!
You can donate via PayPal or send your check to:
Twin Valley Senior Center
P.O. Box 152
East Montpelier, VT 05651
You can also drop your donation at our Center on Route 2 and we will be happy to show you around.
Twin Valley Seniors Inc. also has an account in place at Edward Jones to receive donations of securities and investments. TVSC can be designated as beneficiary on any IRA account you may have. If you would like to have more information or are considering supporting the Senior Center in this manner, please feel free to contact Edward Jones in Berlin at 223-3846 and speak directly with them. All proceeds in this account would help ensure the continued operations of the Twin Valley Senior Center.
Charitable contributions and your Vermont taxes
A recent change in Vermont tax law (Act 11, enacted July 2, 2018), provides for a nonrefundable charitable contribution credit against the Vermont taxpayer's tax liability. This credit is 5 percent of the first $20,000 in eligible charitable contributions made during the taxable year. It applies whether the taxpayer itemizes deductions on their federal tax return or uses the standard deduction.
Since the law and credit are retroactive to January 1, 2018, taxpayers should keep any documentation of charitable contributions made in 2018, for use in preparing the 2018 tax return.
For example: If your 2018 charitable contributions total $1,000, the credit is $50 ($1,000 x 5% = $50). This credit reduces your taxes by $50, whether or not you itemize deductions.
