New Tax Benefit For Donors
(in 2020 only!)

The CARES Act enables tax payers who take the standard deduction to deduct $300 in annual charitable contributions as an "above the line" adjustment to income. This increases to $600 per married couple, and can help reduce a donor's taxable income while giving to a cause.

Will you consider taking advantage of this unique tax benefit before the end of the year to help FoolProof create a more equitable future?


Note: a donation from a donor advised fund (DAF) does not qualify for this new deduction.
