Happy Holidays from Cindy's Legacy. As we embark on our 10th anniversary in 2021 we are reflecting on just how far we've come and the hundreds of people we have helped throughout the years and across the country. In 2021, we'll be making some changes to our giving strategies as well as our fundraising endeavors. Some of these changes are due to the pandemic and some reflect our desire to have a greater impact in our local communities. We're looking forward to everything 2021 brings and hope you all will continue to join and support us! **Note, our patient application process is currently closed and will reopen in early 2021**

💌GRANTS GOING OUT💌

It’s been a tough year but today we were able to get another round of grants out to cancer patients in financial distress! This may be our last round of the year as funding looks bleak but we will continue doing what we can to raise money and continue our mission in 2021. 🎗💝

🎗It’s hard to believe that in 2021 we will celebrate 10 years of providing financial aid to cancer patients. But unfortunately this year has not been anything close to what we expected. Our fundraising events are halted. Our donations are down and our giving is limited.

➰We go into 2021 with a ton of uncertainties but one thing remains certain, cancer patients still need our help, and moreso than ever before!

🤝We are seeking new corporate and individual support of some upcoming initiatives that will help us continue raising vital funds while increasing our profile.

💝You can help! Send us a DM to discuss these opportunities or work with us to create custom partnerships that will not only help us but will elevate your brand.

Support Cindys Legacy by shopping at AmazonSmile.

Greetings! With the current state of the world right now and much being unknown about when we'll be able to get together again, it's unlikely that we as a charity will be hosting any fundraisers again until 2021. In the meantime, we'll stay busy applying for funding and doing many online campaigns so that we can continue to fund our important mission. But, there is one way that anyone can support us whenever they shop online at Amazon.com! And, we're all doing a lot of that these days. So, the next time you shop please consider using Amazon Smile and selecting Cindy's Legacy! It's a big win-win because you pay nothing! Amazon does the work by donating a small percentage of your total purchase to us. These percentages can certainly add up! Thanks for your support. and, remember you must use the smile.amazon link and choose Cindy's Legacy as your charity of choice.

When you shop at AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate to Cindys Legacy. Support us every time you shop.

This is a tough time for our local businesses right now, especially our favorite restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues. Cindy's Legacy has been fortunate over the years to have staunch support from so many of these businesses who've helped with our fundraising efforts by donating cash, goods and services.
.

We simply couldn't do what we do without their help. So, we'd like to take this time to give a shout out to some of those businesses and ask that if you are able to support any of these establishments, or the local businesses in your communities, please do so. They truly need it!
.

We will get through this together. Stay safe and be well! 💝💝

New Universal Tax Break For Charitable Donations Included In Final $2 Trillion COVID-19 Stimulus Package

Beneficial information for our donors this year and for all who have or will make a charitable donation this year... be sure to make note of a benefit included in the new stimulus package. It now let’s non-itemizers take up to a $300 above-the-line charitable income tax deduction for cash donations made in 2020. So, if you take the standard deduction and you give $300 to charity, you’d get the $300 tax break in addition to the standard deduction. Something to keep in mind for next year’s taxes! https://www.forbes.com/sites/ashleaebeling/2020/03/25/new-universal-tax-break-for-charitable-donations-included-in-updated-2-trillion-covid-19-stimulus-bill/#75dd4c4c66a2

The latest stimulus bill includes a tax incentive that charities have been seeking since the Trump tax cuts of 2017 hampered charitable giving.

Hello all! We hope everyone is staying home (if they can) and remaining healthy and safe! We were very much looking forward to our @kendrascott Kendra Gives Back wine down Wednesday in-store fundraiser this week, but as with all events right now, that will have to wait until later in the year.
.
.
But, you can certainly wine down and shop online while still helping to support Cindy’s Legacy. We have so many patients who are in more desperate need than ever as they too face job loss, safety and immense health concerns.
.
.
So, during April 8-9th you can shop kendrascott.com and use the included code to have 20% of your purchase donated back to Cindy’s Legacy. They have wonderful gift items as well for all of the upcoming occasions! So take a peek and see if something catches your eye.

Our Story

Cindy’s Legacy is a 501(c)3 charitable organization founded in honor of Cynthia “Cindy” Martin, a Northern Virginia native, long-time community hairstylist, and mother of three who lost her battle to brain cancer in 2011. It is her story that has inspired her family to act... While undergoing intense treatment plans, Cindy not only had to battle cancer and the physical and emotional pain that comes along with it, but because she was unable to work in her profession and lacked adequate health or disability insurance, she and her family were confronted with ongoing anxiety and frustrations while navigating the muddy waters of doctors, hospitals, health insurance providers, patient advocacy groups, and governmental assistance organizations. Despite all of the "resources" out there, very few actually provided the help that was so desperately needed. While some organizations were good at connecting them with resources, there was a lack of actual hands-on assistance. And, while household and medical bills continued to mount because she was unable to work, financial assistance was desperately needed. Cindy’s family vowed that no one should have to wade their way through administrative nightmares, and endure added mental, physical, or financial stress while they are fighting a deadly disease. It is because of this that they decided to start a charity that will lend personal and financial support to cancer fighters and their families, so they can focus on one thing – surviving.
