As part of our "go green" strategy, we started posting recognition of our donors on the website in the fall of 2010.  Lists can be accessed through the links below.


Cash donations received August 1, 2013 through November 30, 2013



In-kind donations are accepted at Under the Rainbow Resale Shop

You can download and use our In-Kind Donation Form if you plan to use your donation as a deduction on your income taxes.  The U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires donors to value their items rather than the recipient.  As a guide, the form provides ranges for items commonly sold in thrift/resale stores.  Assume the items are in good condition, and remember - prices are only estimated values. 

Please understand that Underground Railroad, Inc.  does not provide tax advice, and we recommend that you check with a tax professional if you are seeking tax advice.
