Since 1953, World Medical Relief has provided medical assistance to those in most need. In addition to monetary donations, we accept donations of medical supplies, prescriptions and various items on our wish list.
A couple of key provisions of the CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act were extended into 2021. Here’s what the new stimulus package means for you.
Tax Incentives when you give to charity:
An expansion of the universal charitable deduction for cash gifts. The new deduction is $300 for single filers and $600 for married couples filing jointly. This is available to taxpayers who take the standard deduction.
Contributions to public charities are generally limited to a percentage of a taxpayer’s adjusted gross income (AGI). The CARES Act lifted the cap on annual contributions for those who itemize, increasing it from 60% to 100% of AGI for 2020 (and now for 2021). Any excess contributions available can be carried over to the next five years. (For corporations, the law raised the annual limit from 10% to 25% of taxable income.)
World Medical Relief greatly appreciates your support - we cannot do our work without you!
