Can’t Never Could encourages year-end giving opportunities

The season of giving has arrived in Coweta County, and the local nonprofit Can’t Never Could says that charitable giving is going to be more important than ever because of the pandemic this year.

“Uncertainty has never been more present in people’s lives than it has been during 2020, and if more donors will consider gifts to nonprofits this holiday season, that’s going to benefit everyone,” said Christi Estes, co-founder of CNC.

The end of the year is a great time to make charitable gifts, she noted, because donors can be sure their year-end giving is tax deductible, while at the same time knowing that their gift will make a difference in the life of an individual who truly needs assistance.

Estes noted that donations are the lifeblood of any nonprofit.

“Because of our donations over the last year, we were blessed to make a difference in the lives of more than 60 families whose everyday way of life had become uncertain and uncomfortable because of a life-altering diagnosis or adversity,” Estes said. “Even without a worldwide pandemic, these families are struggling to maintain some of the most basic human needs, like a roof over their heads, transportation to their doctors’ appointments and treatments, and electricity in their homes.”

Through its online giving portal, Can’t Never Could allows gifts to be made in honor or in memory of someone, and a note acknowledging the gift is sent to the recipient.

Can’t Never Could has a goal of raising $5,000 during this year’s Christmas gift-giving season and has already received donations totaling $1,750, which they note is a good start.

Founded in 2013, Can’t Never Could Inc. is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to helping individuals and groups who are facing adversity and personal battles. Through monetary donations, support and faith in Jesus Christ, Can’t Never Could wishes to instill determination and hope in those who are experiencing these challenges.

Can’t Never Could makes these contributions with the desire to glorify Christ, who provides strength in all circumstances.
