Take Advantage of the CARES Act

List of 2 items.

  • What you need to know about the CARES Act

    Here’s what you need to know about the CARES Act, and how you and others may be able to use it to maximize charitable giving to Mount de Sales when it means the most.
    On March 27, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was signed into law to help combat the far-reaching impacts of COVID-19. The bill may provide increased tax incentives for charitable giving for some donors, but these benefits apply only in the 2020 tax year, so you must act by December 31.
    Although there are a number of potential benefits, we wanted to highlight the benefit below.
    • Donors who itemize can deduct cash contributions to MDSA to offset up to 100% of their income. Ordinarily, this income tax charitable deduction for cash gifts is limited to 60% of income. The 100% limit allows especially generous donors to reduce their 2020 federal income tax to zero. Existing carry-over rules still apply, so those who are even more generous can carry forward unused cash contribution deductions for up to five years.  This makes it easier now more than ever for our most generous supporters to make a gift of a lifetime to MDSA.  Please note that this only applies to “cash” donations.  
  • Who should you contact with questions?

    We advise our philanthropic partners to check with their tax advisor to learn more about how the CARES Act may specifically apply to their tax situation.  We would also be happy to have a conversation.
    We know that our supporters have important priorities for their families and loved ones, and that their health and financial well-being comes first. We are here to help shape a charitable gift plan that suits our donor’s needs and allows them to support our important work. Please contact Beth Saverino '87, director of advancement, at or 410.744.8498 x139.
    Thanks again for your generous support of Mount de Sales Academy.
