Main Street Waterloo is a non-profit, volunteer driven organization that is dedicated to maintaining and enhancing the vitality of our downtown center.
The organization is able to support downtown businesses, hang flower baskets, decorate for the holidays, host events and more because of the generosity of our community.
Main Street Waterloo is kicking off our 2023 fundraising campaign and asking the community to come together and challenging 100 people to donate $100 to make our City Center stronger and more vibrant. The money raised from this campaign will go towards downtown beautification (clean up days, flowers, holiday lights, banners, and more).
Friends of Main Street Waterloo will receive a Downtown Waterloo vinyl sticker, a thank you coupon to be used at an event, and a private thank you event at the end of the year. Friends will be recognized on our website, in our e-newsletter and more.

Section 2204 of the CARES Act provides that taxpayers who do not itemize deductions may take an above-the-line deduction on their 2020 return for qualified charitable contributions in an amount not to exceed $300.
Modification of limitations on charitable contributions

Qualified contributions do not include contributions to a donor advised fund. The law also provides that a corporation can take a deduction in amount up to 25 percent of taxable income for donations of food inventory to charitable organizations in 2020. The food must be used for the care of the ill, needy, or infants. The usual deduction limit for these contributions is 15 percent.
