Fight Fund has a new benefit: for YOU

Your $5 for the Fight donation to help a union brother or sister in need now has a personal benefit for YOU: it’s tax-deductible.

The Missouri AFL-CIO has registered the Fund as a 501(c)3 charity which it was not previously. As a result, all donations now are tax-deductible to the donor.

Now you can help a union family in crisis and at the same time help yours with a tax savings.
