H&R Block referral program helps nonprofits raise more than $1 million for third straight year

June 13, 2019

H&R Block program awards $20 to participating nonprofits for each client referral

H&R Block’s (NYSE:HRB) nonprofit referral program generated funds for more than 2,300 nonprofits this year, totaling more than $1 million for the third straight year. The program awarded nonprofits with $20 for each new client they referred to H&R Block or Block Advisors for tax preparation.

“Through our nonprofit referral program this year, we were able to help fund causes ranging from animal welfare to education to the arts,” said Karen Orosco, senior vice president of the retail business at H&R Block. “Whether it is helping these causes raise funds or donating time at corporate events throughout the year, H&R Block provides help and inspires confidence in communities everywhere.”

Nonprofit organizations often see charitable donations increase toward the end of the year as taxpayers maximize their yearly tax deduction for donations. The H&R Block nonprofit referral program provides local nonprofits with an opportunity to raise funds at the beginning of the year when private donations traditionally decline.

In 2019, H&R Block’s nonprofit referral program funded more than $1 million 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 from the client referral program next year by contacting their local H&R Block or Block Advisors office or visiting www.hrblockreferrals.com.
