Celebrate 2010 with a Gift in 2009

Before you ring in 2010, take a moment to maximize your 2009 tax deductions and your effect on our communities. Please consider becoming a member of Smart Growth Vermont, or making an additional gift to support our programs. The full value of your gift can be added to your itemized deductions. Not only that, each gift to Smart Growth Vermont brings us one step closer to our goal – a state where we can breathe easy, appreciate our scenic beauty, and have affordable homes and thriving downtowns.

There are several ways to make a gift. Click on our Donate Now button to make a cash contribution securely online. Consider becoming a Sustaining Member and help us save paper as well! Have some stock that’s appreciated? You can save in multiple ways. Donate the stock and avoid the long-term gain tax AND get a charitable deduction. If you’re over 70 and faced with mandatory withdrawal from your IRA, donate it instead and avoid the added income tax while using your hard earned funds to make a difference.

However you choose to give, know that your support will go directly to our core programs. Already a member? Thank you!
And don’t forget — celebrate downtown at a First Night! Burlington, St. Johnsbury and Montpelier are all planning celebrations.
