The Love Fund for Children is currently seeking donations in Kansas City of the following goods and services so that our kids in need can focus on their studies:

School Supplies

  • Socks and underwear for both boys and girls of all sizes and ages
  • Backpacks, calculators, notebooks, pens, pencils, etc
  • Bath and body products, including deodorant, soap, shampoo, etc

  • School-appropriate clothing
  • Bus passes
  • Bedding

In addition to tangible goods, there is a large need for services. Many of these children are facing considerable circumstances, and these services are desperately needed by far too many children this year:

  • Abuse Therapy
  • Mentoring
  • Dental Work including Orthodontics
  • Eye Exams
  • Life Skills Classes
  • Activity Fees
  • Tutoring
  • Transportation to/from school activities and events

Of course, this is far from being an exhaustive list. If you believe you have a service that would benefit children in need, we invite you to inquire as to how you can put your skills, talents, and resources to use.

It just might fill a need we haven’t thought of yet, and The Love Fund for Children is always on the lookout for your donations in Kansas City.

If you have the means and the desire, we’d love to hear from you. We invite you to give us a call at 816-932-9170 or send us a message at info@lovefundforchildren.org. Every little bit helps, and together, we have the ability to change the lives of every child in the community.

3 Ways You Can Earn Tax Deductions at a Charity Event

The Love Fund for Children grew from an idea that became a mission. Each and every year, our staff, volunteers, and, most importantly, our donors make a difference in our community that can’t be underestimated.

We are proud to say that our charity events in greater Kansas City have made the community stronger, healthier, and more educated than ever.

While the primary goal of any donation is to assist those in need, it should be noted that there are a number of tax deductions which can be claimed by donating to Love Fund for Children as we embark on our 30th year of serving the community.

Donors can claim tax deductions resulting from any of the following actions:

  • Donations of physical goods to be used in a charity auction. When you donate physical property to be auctioned, you can claim the fair market value.
  • Purchasing tickets to attend a charity event.
  • Placing the winning bid during a charity auction.
  • Donation of cash or other monetary gifts.

Please remember that if your donation is greater than $250, you must provide either a bank record or written acknowledgement. Naturally, we will be happy to provide you with such proof of your donation to be submitted with your tax documentation.

Finally, you should be sure to speak with your accountant regarding the pertinent IRS rules and procedures resulting from your yearly donation. This is especially important if your annual donations exceed $5000.

The Love Fund for Children hosts a number of charity events in greater Kansas City throughout the year. We invite you to contact us by calling 816-932-9170 to learn how you can contribute. We guarantee you that your donations will make a difference in the lives of children who will forever be grateful for your support.
