Donations

Mujeres en Cambio is truly an all volunteer organization, therefore all contributions. except for minimal administrative costs, go to our scholarship recipients. We are proud to announce that in 2018 90.92% of our donations went directly to our students.   

Your donation will go far with us.

In 2016 Mujeres en Cambio became a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the US Internal Revenue Code thereby making US dollar donations fully tax=deductible and making us eligible to receive QCD’s.

Mujeres en Cambio raises approximately $80,000 USD each year.  From this amount are deducted costs which include accounting and legal fees, taxes and occasional expenses such as rentals and transportation.  We do our own fundraising.  Additional costs such as mailings, printing, postage, gas. food and thousands of volunteer hours are contributed by individual members.

Planning Your IRA Withdrawal Strategy?

Please Consider Making a Charitable Donation through a QCD
 
If you are 70-½  or older, you are eligible to make a Qualified Charitable Donation (QCD). This a direct transfer of funds from your IRA custodian, payable to a qualified charity such as Mujeres en Cambio. The main benefit of making a QCD is that the amount donated is excluded from taxable income, which is unlike regular withdrawals from an IRA. Keeping your taxable income lower may reduce the impact to certain tax credits and deductions, including Social Security and Medicare. 

For additional information about QCDs, please speak with your tax adviser.

We appreciate all donations, no matter how they are received, but if you can pay by check we do net more money for the scholarships.
