The holiday season is upon us, and in the spirit of this season of giving, we humbly ask you to consider making a donation to the Medieval Fair this year.
Your donation to the Medieval Fair will help us to continue to present our unique, interactive, educational—and free—family-friendly fair for many more years to come.
The COVID-19 pandemic has hit everyone hard this year—especially live, in-person events that bring together people from all over the state and region like Medieval Fair. We would appreciate your help ensuring the long-term future of the fair, so our families can continue the tradition of gathering each spring to celebrate the culture and history of the Middle Ages.
This year, making a donation to Medieval Fair has never been easier! The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act provides increased tax incentives for charitable giving in 2020:
Individual taxpayers who claim the standard deduction on their taxes may claim a charitable deduction up to $300 in 2020.
For those who do itemize their tax deductions, individual taxpayers may deduct charitable contributions up to 100% of their adjusted gross income in 2020.
Corporate taxpayers may deduct charitable contributions up to 25% of their taxable income in 2020.
If you wish to make a monetary expression of your fealty and loyalty to support the Medieval Fair, tax-deductible donations may be made to the Medieval Fair’s OU Foundation account. Every dollar you donate to Medieval Fair will be used exclusively to ensure that the fair continues to flourish and thrive for years to come.
Donations can be made online via credit card, PayPal and wire transfer. You can also submit your donation via mail—just fill out the online donation form and printable instructions with mailing information will be generated when you submit your donation.
The 2020 tax year ends on Thursday, Dec. 31. For your gift to be considered a 2020 tax-deductible charitable donation, it must be made, received and/or postmarked before Dec. 31. The OU Foundation office will be closed beginning Thursday, Dec. 24, and will re-open Monday, Jan. 4, 2021. For information about the deadlines to qualify for 2020 tax incentives, visit the OU Foundation’s Holiday Giving information portal.
Have a safe, happy and healthy holiday season, and thank you for your continued patronage and support of the Medieval Fair!
