Celebrating with the Salvation Army for 150 Years of Service

November 17, 2015

On July 2, 2015 the Salvation Army celebrated its 150th Anniversary!  The Intermountain Division marked this milestone with a special event in early October, remembering the times of service all the way back to the early days with founder William Booth in the streets of east London.  Today, the Salvation Army offers hope and help to millions of people every year in 127 countries around the world.

M.J. Smith and Associates was pleased to be one of the sponsors of the event.   The night held live music and a special live performance from Nik Wallenda, acclaimed high-wire tightrope walker. In addition, Mark Smith gave a talk about the power of charitable giving from an income tax planning perspective, including the benefit of the Colorado Child Care Tax Credit. 

Mark Smith has supported the Salvation Army Intermountain Division for a number of years and is currently serving as an advisory board member.  He was able to help The Auction Divas Benefit Auctioneers as they assisted the Salvation Army at their 2014 fund-raising auction by explaining the Colorado Child Care Tax Credit.  By coupling the donors' dollars with this program, the Salvation Army was able to double their fund raising goal!
