CARES Act Provisions for Year-End Giving

Did You Know? Changes to charitable giving were enacted in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which was passed into law in March 2020. This important legislation contains one-year provisions that encourage charitable giving to organizations like The Raleigh Ringers.

The CARES Act provides for a $300 above-the-line deduction for taxpayers who use the standard deduction. While many give generously to nonprofits regardless of whether they receive a tax benefit, this temporary universal charitable deduction is an encouragement to donate to nonprofits this year.

For those who itemized their deductions, the CARES Act temporarily eliminates the 60% of adjusted gross income cap on deductible charitable contributions. For example, a taxpayer with $1 million in adjusted gross income would normally only be able to deduct $600,000 in charitable contributions, but this year, they could deduct $1 million in contributions. This means that these donors may have a tax incentive to make significantly larger charitable contributions before December 31, 2020.

IRS Circular 230 Notice: You are advised to seek your own legal and tax advice in connection with charitable gift planning matters. The Raleigh Ringers does not provide legal, financial or tax advice. This communication, including any attachments, is not intended or written to be used, and cannot be used, for the purpose of avoiding tax-related penalties.



* While we'd love to have all of our Friends at our concerts in Raleigh, we know that's not always possible. We now offer our out-of-town Friends the option of tickets to performances near them! You may choose to redeem ticket benefits for season tickets in Raleigh OR a like number of single show tickets to a performance of your choice. (subject to availability)
