How about a last-second tax break?

The SND Foundation is a 501c3 charity, and donations to it are tax deductible.

As a new year approaches, I hope you’ll consider a tax-deductible donation to the Foundation. Whether it’s $10, $50 or more, every penny has the potential to help shape or redefine another person’s career path.

Thanks to the Foundation, a whole slate of digital training will be available free of charge in 2011, helping members become more versatile and invaluable in their newsrooms. Thanks to the Foundation, deserving students will be able to attend SND St. Louis, where they’ll have the opportunity to begin building a professional network and pathways to success.

If you’d like to help support the next generation of visual journalists, send a check or money order to:

SNDF
424 E. Central Blvd., Ste. 406
Orlando, FL 32801

You can make a straight donation, or buy the 15-month SNDF calendar. It’s only $25, and features work from some of the world’s top illustrators. In fact, one of the illustrations from the calendar itself was recently recognized by the Society for Illustrators.

Act fast! Only a few days left in 2010!
