Taxes or Donations

Our nephew’s high school track team sent out a fund raising request. He lives in a Minnesota town. We live in Montana.

He’s a good kid and we believe in supporting youth development programs. There could be more private funding. I sent the following letter accompanying the donation.

Dear Alex:

We’re glad you are involved in sports as a means to increase in character and stature. ( Though ths is a school athletic program, it harmonizes with the goals of the Boy Scouts of America.We like the themes of the Scout Oath: Physically Strong, Mentally Awake and Morally Straight.)

We are happy to support your efforts. We would be able to contribute more to youth athletics if the government didn’t take so much in taxes.

Best wishes,

Uncle Tom and Aunt Melani
