Help Free & Care For the Innocent

Since July 2017, Miracle of Innocence has helped to free four innocent men and women. Miracle of Innocence supports retrials for incarcerated individuals and continuously provides care for the exonerated when they return to society. State departments of corrections and reentry programs do not have adequate assistance when they are freed. With your help, Miracle of Innocence can help provide these individuals with the following care services: habilitation, identification, communication, transportation, occupation, mental health counseling, adult mentorship, food, and clothing. Recently, we have a total of 6 new cases of innocence to prove. With the help of local law firms, we aim to advocate and support these cases only with your full support.

Would you like to finish this year with a gift that maximizes your impact and reduces your taxes? Consider the innovative options below.
Make an Immediate Difference
When you support Miracle of Innocence by simply writing a check, you make great things happen and may receive a federal income tax charitable deduction. If you itemize, you can write off the amount you’re donating, resulting in lower taxable income. Unsure of whether your gift is tax-deductible? Contact your financial advisor or tax consultant. Did you know? Your envelope must be postmarked on or before Dec. 31 for your donation to qualify this year.

Use Appreciated Securities

By donating appreciated securities that you have owned for longer than one year, you receive the same income tax savings as you would by making a gift of cash. You also eliminate any tax on the appreciation.
Did you know? If the securities are electronically transferred to us, the gift date is the day the securities enter our account—not the date you ask your broker to transfer.

Contribute to Your Donor Advised Fund (DAF)

Add funds to an existing DAF or open a new one with Miracle of Innocence that is professionally managed by the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation and does not charge fees – 100% of your contribution goes to support the charities you want to support.
Did you know? You qualify for a tax deduction when you make a gift to a DAF, without immediately having to choose the organizations you want to support. If you are ready to start making an impact with your DAF, consider recommending a grant (or recurring grants) to support us. Learn more about Donor Advised Funds by clicking here.
Make a Gift From Your IRA
If you are 70½ or older, you can give any amount up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to us. (Note: This amount will be higher in subsequent years to adjust for inflation.) You will not pay income taxes on the transfer. If you are required to take minimum distributions, you can use your gift to satisfy all or part of your obligation. Your IRA administrator must remove the funds from your account by Dec. 31 for your donation to qualify this year.
Did you know? If you have check-writing features on your IRA, your check must clear your account by Dec. 31 to count toward your required minimum distribution for the calendar year.

Employee Matching Gift Program

Employee match programs are a benefit that companies offer to encourage and reward giving among their staff. Think of this as free money you are empowered to employ on behalf of your community and the world. Most companies will match an employee’s gift to a charity one-to-one, but others match gifts two-to-one, and some even match donations three-to-one! This means that your gift to a charity can be worth two to four times as much as you donate. Click here to see if your employer will match your donation.

Thank you again for your support and generosity. You are a vital part of our community and our success. Together, we can positively impact the world and change the lives of those who this tragedy has shattered.
