Charitable Tax Incentives for 2020

Charitable Tax Incentives

The holiday season is a time to give, and with the passing of the CARES Act and SECURE Act, there are some excellent charitable tax incentives if you make your charitable gift before December 31, 2020.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • If you itemize your tax deductions, for 2020 only, you may deduct cash gifts to qualified organizations up to 100% of your adjusted gross income (AGI) instead of the usual 60% limitation.
  • You may take a charitable deduction on your 2020 tax returns for cash donations up to $300 to any qualified organization.
  • The Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) age has increased from 70 ½ to 72 for retirement assets and you may also suspend your RMD for 2020. However, you can still make a Qualified Charitable Distribution if you are at least 70 ½ from your retirement account up to $100,000 without recognizing the income.

Your year-end gift will help us make critical missions happen to get people to the life changing care they need!

Talk to your professional advisor to learn how these charitable tax incentives apply to you. If you would like to discuss making a donation, email or call 516-640-7200


You have the power to make critical flights happen

To help a child battling a medical illness get a free flight to a doctor who can save their life. To connect a wounded veteran with a service dog. When you donate to PALS SkyHope, you support people fighting for their lives, and pilots using their skills for the greater good. SkyHope pilots have flown more than 30,000 free missions, lifting the burden for families. With your help, the sky’s the limit for how many missions we can fly and how many lives we can impact. Help us continue to make these flights possible
