SafeHaven CEO on New Tax Law

Dear SafeHaven Friend,

We are so thankful for you.  Nationwide, this has been a rocky time for victims of intimate partner violence.  In some instances, offenders are being held accountable for the first time in history.  On the other hand, it seems more and more offenders are being identified each day.  With every news cycle, we at SafeHaven hold our breath to see how intimate partner violence has swept over communities small and large, old and new.

Our country is also digesting a sweeping new tax law.  Those who work with donors and finance at SafeHaven have attended a variety of trainings on the impact of that law with regards to charitable giving.  If you have questions about how the new tax law impacts your giving to SafeHaven, please seek assistance from a trained accountant.  That conversation can bring a lot of clarity to the issue.

Regardless of your specific situation, I write you today to insure your donations at any level will continue to support the same high quality of service delivery, level of thoughtfulness, and community impact as they always have.  SafeHaven staff are consistent and considerate stewards of your financial donations.  We remain fully committed to our mission of ending domestic violence through safety, support, prevention, and social change.

Thank you in advance for your continued financial support of SafeHaven.  Victims depend on you to keep them safe and hold their offenders accountable.  We are confident in the work SafeHaven does with your support and we boldly look to the future in a strategic and thoughtful manner.

With best regards, I am

Sincerely yours,

Kathryn Jacob, LMSW
President & CEO
