Help Workers Keep More of What They Earn; This Means More to Spend in the Local Economy
Support Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)
VITA leverages volunteer power to ensure millions of lower income working families – including those who are ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) – have access to free quality tax preparation, asset-building resources and financial education services. This is an important program to our Lakeshore area working families. We appreciate your past support and ask that you please work to build on this successful public-private partnership by shoring up investments in the Community VITA Grant Program to $30 million in 2017.
Thank you!
