Thanksgiving and Giving Tuesday are right around the corner and so I am going to take a moment and share some gratitude despite the continued turmoil of our world.
First, we are on target to fund and drill 60 projects this year. A number I was skeptical about reaching 12 months ago based on COVID and the economy.
Second, after 17 months I was able to travel to India on special Business Visa and see a few of our partners and travel with them into the villages to open some recently completed projects.
Third, we have made strides this year towards standardizing our pump equipment with a manufacturer from Delhi who supplies UNICEF, so I am thankful for the quality and price point we have received for this product.
Fourth, everyone who has given to Wells for Life because it is your gifts that enable us to do what we do, and I take this responsibility seriously.
For all of you who are considering participating in GIVING TUESDAY, you do not need to wait for November 30, feel free to give today either on our site by visiting our Donate page or click on this special site https://wellsforlifegt.funraise.org
One donor asked me a few months back if Wells for Life could manage a donation of Stock as this was something he was considering due to his portfolio experiencing some nice gains. 100% was my response and then he wondered why I didn’t promote this as another donation stream?
I do not have a good answer on this but I can correct it now.
If you are in a position where your portfolio has grown nicely like my friend, and the thought of a tax bill is not appealing, then why not donate the shares to Wells for Life and take a deduction for its market value?
