The Village Fine Arts Association (VFAA) has been promoting the arts in the Village of Milford, Milford Township, Huron Valley and beyond since 1992. Our Mission is to promote the arts by providing fellowship, education and opportunities to artists and art lovers in our community.
Your donation supports the Suzanne Haskew Arts Center, “The SHAC,” and the many programs we provide in that makerspace. From Art Exhibitions, art classes and events for everyone, engaging art club meetings with Guest Artist speakers, a variety of community events, and a rental space worthy enough to host a wedding among many other things … the SHAC serves everyone. All are welcome. All are encouraged.
You can support us using PayPal, debit or credit card when you click the Donate button below. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, your donation is tax deductible. Thanks to the 2020 CARES Act, you get direct tax benefits when you donate. $300 per individual is a direct deduction, if you don’t itemize* (more below). We need you now more than ever.
Thank you for your support.
*From Forbes Magazine: Under the CARES Act, [individual] taxpayers can now take a deduction for up to $300 in charitable contributions if they don’t itemize on their 2020 tax form. This is a flip from the previous rule that required itemization for a tax break. According to Section 2205 [of the CARES Act] there is now no limit to the deductions you can take for charitable contributions if you itemize (list out) your contributions. Previously, you could only deduct up to a maximum of 60% of your adjusted gross income (AGI) via charitable contributions. But under the new guidelines, 100% of your donation would now be tax deductible, meaning if your taxable income is $500,000 in 2020, and you give away $500,000 to qualified organizations in 2020, you won’t have to pay taxes on your income. This change applies only to cash gifts made to charitable organizations qualified by the IRS (section 170(b)(1)(A),0).
