JON US IN MISSION
In fidelity to our charism, the School Sisters of Notre Dame Atlantic-Midwest Province, direct our resources and ministries toward transformative education. Your support will enable us to continue our mission to help women, children, and their families receive a Catholic education, job training, growth in self-esteem and spiritual maturity in safe, secure environments of respect, order, and peace. You enable hope.
CARES Act benefits donors
Among the many provisions contained in the $2 trillion aid package signed into law on March 27, 2020, is the expansion of certain tax deductions for 2020, including a new "above-the-line" deduction of up to $300 for individuals making cash donations to the Atlantic-Midwest Province of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, who do not itemize and will take the standard deduction on their 2020 tax returns.
For those who will itemize, the incentive to give is even greater. The Act removes the 60% of adjusted gross income (AGI) limitation for most cash gifts to public charities for 2020. That means you can offset up to 100% of your income in 2020 with charitable contributions. Contributions in excess of this amount can be carried forward for five years subject to the 60% of AGI limit in those years.
However, both the above-the-line deduction for those who take the standard deduction and the suspension of the percentage limitation in 2020 only apply to cash contributions and are not available for contributions to donor advised funds.
As always, please consult your financial advisor or accountant for details.
We ask for your continued support because you are a vital collaborator in our ministries. Your generosity on behalf of our common mission is a profound declaration of your love for one another. Please partner with us in our mission. If you would like to personally discuss your gift, please contact our Development Director, Laura Lang, 410 377-7774 x1154. Thank you.
