If you volunteer for any non-profit organization, or simply believe in the important work they do to make our communities the best they can be, please vote for SAVE, Support American Volunteer Efforts, at www.saveusa.info.



SAVE is a bill in Congress that would give a tax credit up to $2,000 per year to any American who volunteers for a non-profit organization, earned at the rate of the number of hours volunteered multiplied by minimum wage.



As you may know, many people who regularly volunteer are being forced take a second job instead to make ends meet. As a result, non-profit organizations are finding it increasingly difficult to find and keep volunteers. SAVE not only rewards volunteers for their contributions and thus increases volunteerism, but also helps provide sustainable funding to non-profits since volunteers are 2.5 times more likely to donate to the non-profit organizations they support.



SAVE also provides a great contrast to the tax benefits that are currently being pushed through Congress. For example, as few as 8,200 families would reap the majority of the benefits from the repeal of the Estate Tax currently being considered by Congress. The cost of the repeal of the Estate Tax in 2007 alone is greater than any other budget items in President Bush’s 2007 budget, including his stated priorities of Homeland Security, the War in Iraq and Education. As a contrast, for less money, SAVE would benefit the 89 million Americans who volunteer their time, hearts, energy and resources each week to fight our fires, care for our elderly, teach our children, preserve our environment and help out at our hospitals, schools, churches, animal shelters and much more!



Please vote for SAVE at www.saveusa.info to show Congress that America supports volunteer efforts!

Thank you very much to everyone who has supported SAVE, you have no idea how much it means to us! Recently, we have had a lot of success with having people going onto our website http://www.saveusa.info which is AWESOME!!! But we still need your help! All it takes is 30 seconds to go to the website and show your support for this amazing cause!

In case you don't know, SAVE (Support American Volunteer Efforts) is a grassroots effort that supports a bill in Congress (HR 4387) that would allow for up to a $2,000 tax credit for anyone who volunteers for any non-profit organization!

Why would volunteers be interested in getting money for VOLUNTEERING? Because volunteers are 2.5 times more likely to donate the money to organizations they know need it the most, like the places the volunteer for! Soup kitchens, churches, environmental organizations, fire houses, Volunteer EMT organizations, Hurricane Relief funds, and so much more!

There are over 90 million Americans who volunteer an average of 3.6 hours a week to fight our fires, care for our children and elderly, help improve our schools, take care of our sick and dying, help improve our environment and much, much more!!


All we are asking for is 30 seconds of your time to go to our website at http://www.saveusa.info! and then help spread the word to your family, friends, neighbors, teachers, and strangers who you meet on the street! :)

Thank you all for your support and keep up the amazing work!

Thank you very much,
The SAVE Volunteers!!

Did you know that 89 million Americans volunteer?

Better yet, did you know that 46% of 18-24 year olds volunteer 3 or 4 hours a week?

It's true! This shows a dedication to volunteerism and political action beyond what students are generally known for.

This age group is the incoming generation of voters, policy makers and future leaders of America, and absolutely vital to the continuing success of volunteer service in their communities.

S.A.V.E. (Support American Volunteer Efforts) currently has a bill before Congress that if passed would grant up to $2,000 in a tax rebate to people who volunteer for nonprofit organizations.

The only way to pass this bill is to let Congress know that Americans support it!

Go to the S.A.V.E. website and vote for the S.A.V.E. bill! You could win a case of Annie's Macaroni and Cheese and also help make the S.A.V.E. bill a reality.

Hi,
I am with a group called Katy Bishop's animal friends and we are based in Michigan. We are in need of foster parents and people to adopt some of our pets. We have sooo many kittens that need good homes.. Even if you can just foster ONE tiny little sweet kitten you would be a major help. Please check out www.katybishop.org to take a look at some of the great pets we have up for adoption or to sign up to be a foster parent! Or if you have any ideas on how to get more foster parents and people willing to adopt please email me at somavsmara@yahoo.com.

Thank you so much... anything you can do to help no matter how small makes a big impact!

S.A.V.E (Support American Volunteer Efforts) is a nonprofit organization campaigning to pass bill HR4387, which is currently under review in the Ways & Means Committee of Congress.

If the bill were to be passed it would offer up to $2,000 per year in a tax rebate to every volunteer.

Volunteers are two a half times more likely to donate back to non-profits where they volunteer, and their communities. Rather than giving tax breaks to the wealthiest 1% of society this would help to put money back where it is sorely needed.

SAVE is a grass-roots organization. Our office is staffed by volunteers who believe in our cause. We're in the midst of a nation wide press release, selling the idea of SAVE to the media, non-profit and volunteer agencies around the country.

The only way to pass this bill is to let congress know that Americans support it! The easiest way to do this is to vote for SAVE at our website.
