2020 CARES Act Deductions
In the event you are considering a year-end donation to the ASCRS Foundation, in accordance with the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security Act, you'll be able to deduct your donation. For the 2020 tax year only, the CARES Act temporarily suspends limits on charitable contributions to the ASCRS Foundation and most other public charities, and allows taxpayers who do not itemize deductions to take a charitable deduction of up to $300 for cash contributions made by December 31. Please talk to your financial advisor for more information.

Thank you for your generosity and support of the ASCRS Foundation. Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year.
