CARES Act Tax Incentives Extended
A couple of key provisions of the CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act were extended into 2021 (and, in one case, increased). Here’s what the new stimulus package means.

1. An expansion of the universal charitable deduction for cash gifts

The universal charitable deduction has not only been extended but given an upgrade. 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. This tax incentive is available for cash gifts to qualified charities (but not to supporting organizations or donor advised funds).


Fireside Friends Monthly Giving Program

Be the Flame that Lights Camp All Year Long!

Fireside Friends Monthly Giving ProgramJoining the Fireside Friends Monthly Giving Program is one of the best ways to support The Painted Turtle. Recurring gifts offer a more sustainable and predictable source of funding that allows us to plan ahead to bring even more children to Camp.


Gifts of Stocks or Securities

Gifts of securities are a great way to support The Painted Turtle while providing you with a tax deduction for the current, full market value of the securities. There are three main types of securities that can be donated to camp: publicly traded stock in a corporation, shares in a mutual fund, or bonds. A gift of securities is often advantageous to the donor who owns stock with a low yield, have been held long-term, and have increased in value.
