Your generosity stretches even farther with year-end incentives in 2020 CARES Act legislation

Posted on December 18, 2020

Thank you for supporting Innovia Foundation. When considering year-end giving, the following information may be of interest to you:

  • In 2020 only, if you do itemize your deductions, you may deduct cash gifts up to 100% of your adjusted gross income (AGI) instead of the usual 60% limitation.
  • No change was made for the age at which you can make a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). If you are at least 70 ½, you can still direct a QCD from your retirement account up to $100,000 without recognizing the income.
  • The Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) age was increased from 70 ½ to 72 for retirement assets, and RMDs may be suspended in 2020.
  • If you take the standard deduction on your taxes, you can also take a charitable deduction for charitable contributions up to $300 per tax return.
  • You may grant a one-time or recurring gift through your Donor Advised Fund.
  • Consider naming Innovia Foundation as a beneficiary of a retirement account, donor-advised fund or life insurance policy.

Please consult with your professional advisors on how these suggestions may impact you.
