Committed to a brighter future for children, neighbors and communities.

We consider a healthy neighborhood to be one that is safe, clean, and diverse; one in which it makes economic sense for people to invest and one where neighbors manage change successfully.

End of Year Giving

Grassroots-End-of-Year-Giving

As we near the end of the year and enter a season of holiday cheer and charitable giving, we wanted to share a few ways that you can maximize your gift to your favorite nonprofit this year. The CARES Act passed earlier this year for COVID-19 pandemic relief impacts year-end giving in the following ways:

  • A new charitable deduction is available to individual taxpayers who do not itemize their deductions. This benefit allows for a charitable deduction of up to $300 per individual as an above-the-line deduction against adjusted gross income.
  • For those who itemize, the CARES Act increases the adjusted gross income limitation from 60% to 100%.
  • For corporations, the CARES Act increases the adjusted gross income limitation from 10% to 25%.

 

To qualify for these increased limits, your charitable contribution must be made in 2020.

Last Friday was a busy time of celebratory events in East Waco. JH Hines hosted a Muffins for Moms event, where over 100 moms, grandmothers, aunties, sisters, and mother figures attended. Community partners and other volunteers also showed up to support this effort.
At the same time, just across West Waco Drive, was the Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new GW Carver Middle School. Alumni, current students and staff, public officials,Waco ISD, residents and other community members gathered for this historical event. We enjoyed being able to participate and support these exciting moments.
