Be a Champion for TEA
Empathize with us. Advocate for us. Collaborate with us to Champion our CommuniTEA.
Our TEA Champions Campaign will help us make up for the unexpected and uncontrolled loss of $500,000 from our postponed Simply Mad About TEA Auction and projected $250,000 decrease in revenue for this spring’s activities and this summer’s camps.
In response to these anticipated losses we are actively engaged in cost saving measures, have applied for Federal Relief Aid through the CARES Act, and have pivoted to a completely virtual admissions process. We also need your help.
As a Champion for our CommuniTEA, you can help us navigate this real world problem and be stronger in the end. We are already more than halfway to our $750,000 goal, thanks to the tremendous generosity of a handful of families.
Taylor Simmers, co-founder of TEA, shares more details about our Champions Champaign in the video below.
Please show your support for TEA by donating today.
Please note that in addition to facilitating direct financial relief to affected nonprofit organizations, the CARES Act also creates charitable giving incentives for donors to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. Section 2205 of the CARES Act lifts the existing cap on annual contributions for those who itemize, raising it from 60 percent of adjusted gross income to 100 percent. Section 2204 of the CARES Act includes a new above-the-line deduction (universal or non-itemized deduction that applies to all taxpayers) for total charitable contributions of up to $300. The incentive applies to contributions made in 2020 and would be claimed on tax forms next year. We encourage you to consult your tax advisor for the tax treatment of your donation.
In order to maximize the impact of your gifts over $1000, please consider mailing a check to: Tahoe Expedition Academy, Annual Giving Campaign, 9765 Schaffer Mill Road, Truckee, CA 96161. Online donations include a credit card processing fee of approximately 3%. If you’d like to cover that 3% fee, please add the 3% and use the “other” option.
