In March 2020, Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, also known as the CARES Act. Intended to address the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, this bill includes two provisions that increase the tax-deductibility of donations to charities.

1)    Individual taxpayers are now allowed to deduct charitable donations of up to $300 on their 2020 federal tax return even if they take the standard deduction. Married taxpayers who file jointly may deduct up to $600.

2)    For individuals who itemize their deductions, the deduction cap has been raised from 60% to 100% of adjusted gross income. The deduction cap for corporations has been raised from 10% to 25%.

We hope you will be inspired to take advantage of these temporary measures as you consider making a donation to Omega or any other 501(c)(3) organization during this difficult time.

Please contact Veronica Fitzgerald at or 845.266.4444, ext. 402 to discuss how your gift can help further Omega’s mission.
