New, temporary deduction for charitable donations:

As part of the CARES Act, taxpayers can deduct up to $300 for cash donations given to charity even if they choose to take the standard deduction, rather than itemizing their deductions. The IRS estimates that about nine in 10 taxpayers now take the standard deduction. If someone makes a cash donation before the end of the year they can get a deduction of up to $300 when they file. A deduction lowers both adjusted gross income and taxable income for the taxpayer. Taxpayers can deduct up to $300 for cash donations to charity, even if choosing the standard deduction.


Gundega and Jim show their support!

“We’ll be gone, but a gift from us through our will allows St. Vincent de Paul’s love and work to continue on. Yes, we’ve provided for our family, but something more from us at the end to those who need it most in our community just feels right.” – Gundega and her husband, Jim

“To protect creation, to protect every man and every woman, to look upon them with tenderness and love, is to open up a horizon of hope; it is to let a shaft of light break through the heavy clouds; it is to bring the warmth of hope!”
- Pope Francis, March 2013
