A note about the CARES Act:
We want to let you know about a few key provisions of the new CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act and how it can benefit you. This new
law was designed to help you and has been extended and upgraded! These provisions include tax changes that allow donors to give more money to charity at a lower cost. 

For those who itemize their deductions, the charitable contribution limitation has been extended for 2021. The limitation for cash contributions, formerly set at 60%, has been raised to 100% of an individual's adjusted gross income (AGI). For those who don't itemize their deductions, the CARES Act extension also expanded above-the-line- charitable deductions. The new deduction is $300 for single filers and $600 for married couples filing jointly. Note that this deduction applies only to qualified cash contributions by non-itemizers. Contributions to new or existing donor-advised funds or private foundations don't qualify. Please consult with your financial adviser to see how your giving can be enhanced.   

 

If you have additional questions or needs, please contact the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden Development Office at 513-559-7716 or supportthezoo@cincinnatizoo.org.

 

Please be advised that due to US tax law, gifts made through Donor Advised Funds or charitable IRA rollovers are not eligible for memberships. (Please see your tax advisor)
