What a Year!
Dear Friends of The Next Stop,

The Next Stop has always existed to deliver adults with special needs from a life of loneliness, isolation and regression into a social, supportive and enriching community. Then the pandemic hit, and we were challenged to continue the effort without being together.

Your support through this unprecedented year has helped The Next Stop continue to serve our members in the best way possible. Weekly engagements on Zoom has given us the opportunity to provide this population with familiarity and camaraderie through stimulating games, music, crafts, fitness and cooking.

Our members depend on The Next Stop to help enrich their lives. We hope that you will consider an end-of-year donation to support them, their families and the endeavors of The Next Stop as we move into 2021 with high hopes for a better new year!
HOW and WHEN you donate matters . . .
to us and maybe to YOU!
In response to the pandemic, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was signed into law. The CARES Act includes provisions that will help both YOU and The Next Stop when you make a charitable contribution in 2020.

  • If you do not itemize your taxes, you can now deduct up to $300 in charitable gifts ($600 if married, filing jointly).

  • If you itemize your taxes, you can deduct cash contributions up to 100% (increased from 60%) of your adjusted gross income

Also, did you know that if you give to a charity directly from your IRA, it doesn't hit your income? You can donate to a charity AND save on tax liability.

On behalf of our members and their families, we thank YOU
because YOU make it all possible.
