CARES ACT and 2021 charitable contributions

The CARES Act included language that makes giving to DCFYI easier in 2020!

This is true for people who take the standard deduction or itemize. 

New Deduction Available: Up to $300 per taxpayer ($600 for a married couple) in annual charitable contributions. This is available only to people who take the standard deduction (for taxpayers who do not itemize their deductions). It is an “above the line” adjustment to income that will reduce a donor’s adjusted gross income, and thereby reduce taxable income. 

Evaluation Committee seeks new member/s

We are seeking someone interested in joining our Program Evaluation subcommittee of the Family & Youth Initiative board.

If you have experience with research, program evaluation or performance measures and would like to give back to an amazing organization, please consider joining our team. Meetings occur monthly and cover analyzing program administrative data, identifying creative ways to conduct program evaluations, and dissemination of research on the program.

DCFYI Program Events

In March of 2020, the coronavirus changed the way we have been able to interact with each other. DCFYI misses your bright smiles, laughter and energy. We are excited to be re-starting small events while we can be outside.

Our goal is to hold at least one in-person event and one virtual event every month through the fall.

In order to host the safest events as possible, we have created these event guidelines:

Small group events only with priority for new teens and adults who are not yet matched with a teen.
