Giving

Sunrise Side Lifelong Learning (SSLL) is a 501(c)3 organization and as such can receive tax-deductible contributions under section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code. We can also receive tax-deductible bequests, transfers or gifts. Therefore, money or gifts received by Dec. 31, 2017 qualify the giver for a tax-deduction.

Lifelong learners value education - for themselves and others. Daily, we see the educational and social impact SSLL has on our members.

In order to sustain our quality programming, your financial support is needed. Although SSLL is tremendously fortunate to have passionate, qualified members, friends and others willing to volunteer their time and expertise, we still have many annual operating expenses necessary to offer such a program. These include liability and property insurance, technology and software programs, staff compensation, marketing and community outreach, Printing and publications, event speakers, event venue rentals, transportation concerns and course materials to name a few.

Our current membership fees cover approximately 50% of our ongoing costs. Therefore, the remaining 50% must be raised through donations, gifts, and grants. Our plans for development and an enhanced quality of programs depend 100% on charitable gifts.

Your consideration of a tax-deductible gift will benefit the program and help secure the SSLL legacy. You may consider a direct donation to SSLL or a contribution via Giving Tuesday sponsored by the ICCF (see below).
