Looking for a last-minute tax deduction for 2017? Why not consider a donation to Access Press? A $30 gift can provide a one-year subscription to a reader in need.
Access Press provides the in-depth news and information Minnesotans with disabilities and the elderly rely on. We cover happenings at the state capitol, at city halls, and around the state. We provide information on upcoming fun events and on opportunities to help people lead better, and more inclusive lives in their communities.
Our People and Places section celebrates accomplishments by community members. Viewpoints are shared on the From Our Community pages. We bring you a regular Radio Talking Book sampling, as well as fun events and information you need on our Opportunities and Enjoy! pages.
We’re also pleased to bring you Minnesota disability history, thanks to our History Note sponsored by the Minnesota Governor’s Council on Developmental Disabilities.
Many of our readers have disabilities that keep them from easily getting out of their homes. Reading news online can also be impossible due to physical or financial limitations.
We often hear from readers who would very much like a subscription, but even a $30 fee is out of financial reach. Generous donors and often just the cost of doing business in our community has allowed us to pay for many gift subscriptions for readers in need. Would you like to be one of those helpers/donors just to help your brother and sister on fixed incomes?
By making a tax-deductible donation for a gift subscription or subscriptions you can help Access Press give the gift of access to vital news and information delivered right to someone’s doorstep. You may have someone in mind, and we would honor that or it would allow us to say yes, of course, when a request has been called in. You don’t even need to have someone in mind for the gift subscription. Your gift can help us meet requests for the newspaper when those requests come to our office.
We also honor gift subscriptions for newspapers for libraries, schools, places of worship, activity centers or other places and organizations that advance the inclusion of the disability and elderly communities.
Please contact Access Press, Executive Director Tim Benjamin if you have questions, at 651-644-2133, [email protected] or just mail it in with a note to put it into the Access Press free subscription fund. The mailing address is Access Press, Capitol Ridge OfficeS, 161 St. Anthony Ave., Suite 910, St. Paul, MN 55103.
