Refugee Women’s Alliance is registered as a non-profit corporation (EIN #91-1296964). Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent of the law.
UPDATE: Individual Taxpayers who take Standard deduction can deduct $300 in charitable gifts.
With the 2020 CARES Act, individual taxpayers who take the Standard Deduction can give $300 to charity ($600 for married couple) and take a deduction from their tax bill. Previously, only taxpayers who itemize their deductions could do this, but the 2020 law allows those who do not itemize their deductions to take a deduction, too. It is an “above the line” adjustment to income that will reduce a donor’s adjusted gross income (AGI), and thereby reduce taxable income. To qualify, you would have to give a donation to a qualified charity. All contributions made since January 1 count toward the $300 cap. A donation to a donor-advised fund (DAF) does not qualify for this new deduction.
