There are many ways to give to Dilworth Center

On Friday, March 27, the House of Representatives and the President signed into law H.R. 748, the third relief package Congress has passed, and the President has signed into law to address the US response to COVID-19. The package, which was passed by the Senate on Wednesday, March 25, is the largest relief package in U.S. history and includes several provisions helpful to the social good sector.

This package assists social good organizations as employers and mission-driven organizations. Here is an overview of six specific provisions of this bill.

  1. Universal Charitable Deduction

This package includes a temporary universal charitable deduction. This deduction will allow all taxpayers, even those who do not currently itemize their deductions, to claim a 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.

  1. Adjusted Gross Income Limitation

In this package, adjusted gross income limits on charitable deductions are suspended or adjusted for cash gifts made by individuals and corporations. The adjusted gross income cap for individual taxpayers has been suspended, which increases the cap from 60% to 100% of adjusted gross income. The cap for corporations has been increased from 10% to 25%.
