Last season LBO launched a successful new series of “UnGalas.” This year we continue to redefine what a fundraiser can be with “The 2020 Songbook,” a live and fully virtual new music extravaganza featuring 20 world premiere pieces.

The 20 composers have each written a piece reflecting on 2020. The entire event is hosted by Anthony Roth Costanzo.

The CARES Act & Charitable Giving

The CARES Act & Charitable Giving

The CARES act has made some changes in your charitable deduction allowances: 

You can now take a new deduction of up to $300 per taxpayer ($600 for a married couple) in annual charitable contributions until December 31, 2020. For those who take the standard deduction on their taxes this is an “above the line” adjustment that reduces your adjusted gross income, and thereby reduces taxable income directly.

For those who itemize, Individuals can deduct cash gifts*, up to 100% of their 2020 adjusted gross income, up from the previous limit of 60%. Corporations may deduct up to 25% of taxable income, up from the previous limit of 10%.

*These are for cash gifts to public charities only and do not apply to private foundations, donor advised funds or gifts of appreciated stock.
