For Tax Preparers and Community Partners
You can make a huge difference by encouraging your clients to check the box next to “West Virginia Children’s Trust Fund” on Line 24 A of their 2020 state tax return and help support projects that prevent child abuse and neglect statewide.
For over 30 years, the Children’s Trust Fund has supported local efforts to help children all across West Virginia have safe, healthy and happy childhoods, and that did not change in the face of COVID-19 or the ensuing economic crisis.
In fact, in 2020, the Children’s Trust Fund provided more than $300,000 to support local programs as they adapted to meet the needs of vulnerable children and families.
Throughout the pandemic, these programs facilitated hundreds of hours of virtual tutoring sessions and delivered thousands of meals, activity packets, and other essential items to families in West Virginia.
Every donation to the Children’s Trust Fund stays in West Virginia’s communities and helps children grow up healthy, strong, and ready to learn. Donations are also tax deductible for federal income tax purposes.
Please help us support happy, healthy childhoods across West Virginia through COVID-19 and beyond by encouraging your clients to check the box for the WV Children’s Trust Fund. Taxpayers can donate whether or not they are receiving a state tax refund.
