The CARES Act’s Charitable Giving Provisions

Universal Charitable Deduction
The CARES package includes a temporary universal charitable deduction. This deduction will
allow all taxpayers to claim an above the line charitable deduction for cash donations up to $300 through December 31. Donations to donor advised funds and supporting organizations are not eligible for this deduction.

Adjusted Gross Income Limitation
The law also lifts the cap on annual deductions for cash contributions for those who itemize,
raising the cap from 60% to 100% of adjusted gross income. The cap for corporations has been
increased from 10% to 25%. For food donations, the corporate cap has been increased from
15% to 25%.

What this Means for You
Kids need your help now more than ever. For many, childhood has been suspended. The Club
is a source of stability, consistency, and connection for teens. We are providing access to
remote learning, virtual homework help, mentorship, and enrichment activities with friends and trusted mentors.

Your gift helps us maintain and grow these programs. And with these new tax incentives, there
has never been a better time to support BGCC.
