The Agudah Tzedakah Scrip program is endorsed and encouraged by Baltimore’s Vaad Harabbanim.
What is Tzedakah scrip?
Tzedakah scrip is given to mishulachim instead of cash or a check. The mishulachim then exchange it at the Agudath Israel of Park Heights for cash. Since it was purchased at a premium, the extra money goes to our school! Scrip is tax-deductible and it ensures that a portion of your tzedakah dollar stays local. This provides an easy way to track your maaser and to always have ready “cash” or “check” to distribute at shul or at your door.
|You pay:||Meshulach gets:||Toras Simcha gets:|
|$ 0.75||$ 0.50||$0.25|
|$ 1.25||$ 1.00||$0.25|
|$ 3.00||$ 2.50||$0. 50|
|$ 5.00||$ 4.00||$1.00|
Advantages of using Agudah scrip
- Document your maaser – The new IRS tax law states that all donations made by cash or check (even less than $250) must be documented to be claimed as a charitable donation on your tax return.
- Simplify your tzedakah record-keeping and distribution.
