Did you know that you can make a donation to Planned Parenthood PAC of Oregon…at no cost to you?

It’s true! Every year, the Oregon Political Tax Credit allows individual Oregonians to give $50 to their favorite political cause and receive this full amount back at tax time. (Couples filing jointly can get a refund for up to $100!) In other words, the state gives you a $50 or $100 gift to donate to the political cause of your choice. It’s a full 100% dollar-for-dollar credit, not a deduction!

With your contribution, Planned Parenthood PAC of Oregon can continue to get results like these:

Most importantly, Planned Parenthood PAC of Oregon plays a key role in holding politicians accountable. We’ve seen an alarming increase in hateful rhetoric and smear campaigns against abortion providers and patients over the past year — and that environment breeds acts of violence, like the recent tragedy in Colorado Springs. Now more than ever, we must stop politicians who engage in, condone or excuse the vitriol that has created a toxic environment around reproductive health.

With the end of the year fast approaching, now is the time to claim your Oregon Political Tax Credit before it expires. Please click here to make a donation today.
