What $300 Can Do at Peoples’ Self-Help Housing


Central Coast, CA, December 18, 2020 – A new provision with the IRS allows for an additional $300 tax deduction for gifts made to qualifying charities before December 31, 2020. Even if you don’t itemize your charitable donations, you may still qualify for a $300 deduction on your IRS return.

“We are very excited to remind our supporters of this additional accommodation”, said Peoples’ Self-Help Housing (PSHH) Chief Financial Officer Griffin Moore, “$300 can do an enormous amount of good at PSHH, and I encourage everyone to look at every deduction they can to help our neighbors in our community.”

“Our nation’s charities are struggling to help those suffering from COVID-19, and many deserving organizations can use all the help they can get,” said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig. “We encourage people to explore this option to help deserving tax-exempt organizations – and the people and causes they serve.”

A donation of $300 to Peoples’ Self-Help Housing can make a great impact on families throughout the Central Coast. By making your generous gift, you will:

  • Assist with 3-5 months of utilities
  • Supply 2-3 families with gifts for the holidays
  • Purchase a month of groceries for housebound seniors
  • Provide 6 months of internet services for virtual learning
