Are you itemizing deductions? You can now give more to KIND before reaching your adjusted gross income (AGI) limitation. For charitable gifts made in 2020, taxpayers can elect to deduct up to 100 percent of their AGI. For individuals not itemizing deductions, the CARES Act allows taxpayers to take an additional $300 above-the-line deduction for charitable gifts made in 2020.

Workplace Giving

Workplace giving allows employees to easily make donations to KIND via automatic payroll deductions without any loss of charitable giving tax benefits. We encourage you to reach out to your Human Resources Department to find out if your company or organization participates in a workplace giving program.

Meet Our Supporters

"In New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington DC, hundreds of supporters attended This is America fundraisers on the 4th of July, raising over $15,000 to protect migrant children while they reminded the world that the United States stands for diversity, inclusion, and opportunity."
"Even if you feel overwhelmed by an atmosphere of hate in America, I hope you always remember that here are countless people thinking about you every day, admiring your resilience and hoping for your speedy and successful transition into this country we call home."
“A”, donor from Washington State
"Some of our mightiest supporters in 2018 were our youngest. From neighborhood friends who set up lemonade stands on their street corner, to children who donated their monthly allowance, or sold their hand-made origami creations, the thoughtfulness of these youngsters helping their peers in need touched us all."
"I have a toddler and I cannot imagine the trauma if my little one was separated from me and detained without her parents. I am donating because no child should suffer like this."
"J.", donor from California
"Samantha Bee’s “Full Frontal” aired a holiday special on TBS, with proceeds benefiting KIND’s Family Separation Response Team. Thanks to Samantha and the thousands of donors who watched her show, KIND received over $300,000 in donations for our work in representing children who were separated from their parents at the border."
"I donated because my grandparents immigrated to this country seeking a better life."
"J.", donor from New Jersey
"Erik Mathy, a photographer and cyclist based in the Bay Area, biked over 1,200 miles on the historic Butterfield Overland Mail Route fundraising for KIND. Eric conducted interviews and took portraits of people along his journey who were impacted by the drastic shifts in this border route over time. Erik has raised over $4,000 for KIND and will soon have an Adobe documentary published about him and his journey!"
"Because no one would be fleeing their homes, leaving everything they know behind if their lives didn’t depend on it, and they deserve a chance for a better life."
"A.", donor from Illinois
"In October 2018, musical artists from across Southern California joined together to organize a benefit concert called MUSIC HUGS (Musicians United in Support of Immigrant Children Held Under Unlawful Government Separation). Together, these creative individuals used their talents to raise over $20,000 for KIND’s programs – and to make a difference."
"Because these children deserve a voice."
"D.", donor from California
