The CARES Act and Charitable Giving


The CARES Act now allows for additional charitable giving than before. For those donors that itemize, their cash limitation to certain charities has jumped from 60% to 100% of the individual’s Adjusted Gross Income or AGI.
For those who do not itemize their deductions, the Act allows for $300 in cash contributions in order to receive an “above-the-line” deduction. All donations must be made in cash as opposed to stock.
