Recently passed legislation allows donors, who do not itemize on their annual taxes but make a cash gift to charity, to now take a special tax deduction, up to $300 (per taxpayer unit), to reduce one's tax liability. The CARES ACT also increases the deduction limit up to 100% of a donor's annual income for cash gifts (previously the deduction was capped at 60% of annual income). So, if you make a charitable gift, you will be able to deduct more this year!

For additional information, please consult your tax advisor or financial planner.

Endowment Gift

Endowment Gift
Pat and Shelly were recently married. They both had been dedicated volunteers at their favorite charity for many years. They wanted to make certain the charity's programs continued even after they were gone.

Pat: We appreciated the organization's work. We hoped to register our commitment and support by making a gift that would last well into the future.

Shelly: A staff member at the organization asked us to consider making a gift to the endowment. We learned that the endowment was a fund that served as a permanent source of income for the organization's projects.

Pat: I liked that giving to the endowment would help the charity continue its programs on an ongoing basis.

Shelly: I also felt that the gift would provide a legacy for us. We were both thrilled that our gift would keep on giving to a cause we love.

The support of donors like Pat and Shelly makes our work possible. When you make an endowment gift, your gift is maintained in perpetuity and creates a lasting, meaningful difference. Please contact us to learn how to create your legacy through an endowment gift.
