Our citizen-led initiative is a 100% grassroots effort. We welcome assistance in many forms – time and/or monetary donations. Running a successful grassroots campaign incurs expenses to reach every Lake Oswego voter and gather 4,365 Lake Oswego voter signatures required to qualify for the ballot. With your assistance, we can inform our community about this cause and their role in getting it on the ballot.
DID YOU KNOW – OREGON HAS A POLITICAL TAX CREDIT! USE IT TO HELP US GET 2020IN-1 TO THE BALLOT.
The Oregon tax system allows most Oregon voters a political tax credit. This is a dollar-for-dollar tax credit you can take once per year on your state tax return.
By donating $50 per person/$100 per taxpaying couple for individuals earning less than $100K (single filer) or $200K (joint filer) – you can use this tax credit to reduce your taxable income to the State of Oregon. If you qualify to use the tax credit, it won’t cost you to help our campaign.
