H&R Block Helps Nonprofits Raise More Than $1 Million For Second Straight Year

Participating Nonprofits Receive $20 For Each Client Referred To H&R Block Or Block Advisors

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - May 01, 2018 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // - H&R Block’s (NYSE:HRB) nonprofit referral program generated donations for more than 2,400 nonprofits this year, totaling more than $1 million for the second straight year. The program awarded nonprofits with $20 for each new client they referred to H&R Block or Block Advisors for tax preparation.

“More than 2,400 nonprofit organizations nationwide participated in the H&R Block nonprofit referral program,” said Jennifer Snyder, program manager for H&R Block. “Giving back is part of H&R Block’s culture. Whether it’s free tax advice, a community service project or a financial donation, H&R Block invests in the communities it serves.”

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

In 2018, H&R Block’s nonprofit referral program contributed 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 next year by contacting their local H&R Block or Block Advisors office or visiting www.hrblockreferrals.com.
