Teens have the will. Help give them the way.
Wyman teens are growing to be the compassionate, capable, and connected leaders our region and nation need. And they need us all to stand with them. Our youth deserve equitable opportunities, and together, we are giving them the tools and supports to thrive. Your donations empower and give hope to the teens Wyman serves. Thank you for your generous support.

The CARES Act of 2020 changed charitable giving incentives for contributions made in 2020, and the Consolidated Appropriations Act extended these changes through 2021. These incentives are for taxpayers who do not itemize deductions – allowing them to deduct the first $300 of charitable donations from their taxes. In 2021, couples may deduct $600 in above-the-line deductions. This legislation also extends raising the cap on annual contributions for those who itemize, from 60% of adjusted gross income to 100 percent. For corporations, the law raises the annual limit from 10% to 25%. Please consult your tax advisor about how this can benefit you in 2021.
Now, More Than Ever
Human connection is a critical part of the Wyman experience. Wyman staff are committed to supporting teens as they navigate the world in the midst of this pandemic and respond to the racial injustices in our systems. In a time where teens may feel overwhelmed and disconnected, your donations allow us to continue programs that build life skills, develop a positive sense of self, and make healthy connections with others.
Our work continues in new ways, as we adjust to meet the changing needs of our young people. Even when we can’t be with them in person, we ensure Wyman teens are healthy, safe, and receiving the supports they need. We have promises to keep to our young people, and they need our support now more than ever.
