TAKE ADVANTAGE OF CHARITABLE GIVING INCENTIVES IN THE CARES ACT
The recently passed $2 trillion CARES Act allows taxpayers to claim up to $300 in cash contributions made to a qualified public charity this year as a deduction from their gross income, even if they take the standard deduction on their 2020 return.
The act also lifts the existing cap on annual contributions for those who do itemize, raising the charitable deduction for cash donations from 60% of adjusted gross income to 100% for contributions made to qualified public charities. It is important to note that cash gifts to donor advised funds or supporting organizations do not qualify for this special treatment.
For 2020, the act also increases the 10% of taxable income limitation on charitable deductions for corporations to 25%. Contributions must be in cash to a qualifying charity. Additionally, the act increases the deduction for food inventory to a qualifying charity from 15% to 25%.
USE FUNDS FROM YOUR DONOR ADVISED FUND OR PRIVATE FOUNDATION
If you are hesitant to make outright donations of cash or other assets, now is an excellent time to direct resources from your donor advised fund or private foundation to support organizations and individuals in critical need. Doing so can help you maintain liquidity and maintain your investment strategy while supporting meaningful philanthropic initiatives.
