What you may not know is that newly-passed government stimulus also extends the tax benefits of the CARES Act into 2021! When you donate any amount (up to $300 in total donations for individuals, and up to $600 for those filing jointly), you will be eligible to claim a deduction of equal amount in addition to the standard deduction. For our donors who itemize, there are even greater potential benefits. As always, please speak to your tax advisor for details.
