Donation Information

Thank you for committing to a better York County by supporting our LGBTQIA+ Community!

Your donation allows the Rainbow Rose Center, a small, volunteer-based organization, to provide resources for this community in York and across the country! Contributions made by incredible people like yourself, allow the Rainbow Rose Center to:

  • Coordinate programs and support groups
  • Work with Gay-Straight Alliances in York County schools
  • Allow us to celebrate with our annual events
  • Provide valuable information to the community on resources available to them and to educate our allies in supporting the community

We are proud to say we are a 501(c)3 organization recognized by the federal government, meaning your donation is tax-deductible.

The CARES Act allows for an additional, “above-the-line” deduction for charitable gifts made in cash of up to $300. This provision is extended into 2021 for taxpayers filing single/separately. New in 2021 is an additional “above-the-line” deduction for those married filing jointly. Joint filers (who aren’t itemizing) will be allowed to take an above-the-line deduction of up to $600 in cash contributions to charity this year. (from Fidelity Charitable
