What is Tax-A-Thon?

The Ladder Up Tax-a-Thon is a massive one-day event, on February 5, 2022, that pairs low-income individuals and families with qualified volunteers who assist them in filing their taxes and securing the tax refunds owed to them. The event has an enormous impact in underserved communities, giving families a degree of financial freedom, thus encouraging consumer spending in neighborhoods that need it most. Share your passion for helping clients with others in your network and help Ladder Up raise critical funds to ensure that we can continue to deliver benefits to families.

Your Volunteer Time Will Help Fund Our Programs

Volunteers at our tax sites returned an average of over $1,500 to clients for every hour they spent at a tax site.

In February, your volunteer time will also help fund Ladder Up’s programs through our Tax-A-Thon event. Sign up today for volunteer sessions through VolunteerHub to make sure we can serve as many clients as possible. If you or your company would like to sponsor Tax-A-Thon and become our Match Donor for the month of February, please email Aneta Pietraszek at

With every dollar raised come bragging rights, not to mention that for every $1 donated to Ladder Up, the organization returns $30 in economic benefits to clients.

Prizes, of course

Did we mention that there are prizes? Each week, we will draw the name of a volunteer for a special prize! At the end of February, anyone who volunteered for 12 or more hours will be entered into a drawing for a grand prize!
