H&R Block Turns Tax Filing into Fundraising

May 02, 2017

H&R Block’s (NYSE:HRB) nonprofit referral program generated donations for more than 2,000 nonprofits this year. The program awarded nonprofits with $20 for each new client they referred to H&R Block or Block Advisors for tax preparation.

“Nearly 2,200 nonprofit organizations nationwide participated in the H&R Block nonprofit referral program,” said Katie Burr, program manager. “Giving back is part of H&R Block’s culture. Whether it’s free tax advice, a community service project or a financial donation, H&R Block invests in the communities it serves.”

Nonprofit organizations often see charitable donations increase toward the end of the year as taxpayers maximize their yearly tax deduction for donations. This program provides area nonprofits with an opportunity to raise funds at the beginning of the year when private donations traditionally decline.

In 2017, H&R Block’s nonprofit referral program contributed more than $1,000,000 to participating organizations. 501(c)(3), 501(c)(6), 501(c)(19) and 501(c)(23) organizations, such as schools, chambers and veterans organizations, are eligible for the program. Organizations may sign up now to benefit next year by contacting their local H&R Block or Block Advisors office or visiting www.hrblockreferrals.com.
