Special Deduction This Year: The CARES Act allows you to take a one-time deduction this year of up to $300 for gifts made to charities (like Make Shift Coffee House) even if you don't itemize your deductions. That’s like: you get to reduce your tax bill by whatever you give to charity this year, up to $300.

Here's what we need money for.

More Make Shift Coffee Houses in more places! Both Online and In-Person. Especially to reach places that are typically underserved. If you would like to sponsor one or more Make Shift Coffee Houses, let's talk about your goals. Anonymous gifts are welcome.

We believe that Make Shift Coffee House is replicable and scalable. And we can see that it's making an impact. These events and online forums are helping us get along better, in spite of our differences.

Make Shift Coffee Houses should be happening across the country in all kinds of settings and on all kinds of screens.

Thank you for joining our dream. All gifts are deeply appreciated, no matter the size.
