The Izzy Foundation wouldn't be able to provide these services and support without the wonderful support of those who contribute through cash and in-kind donations.  Here are some ways in which you can participate:

CASH DONATIONS can be made in numerous ways:  one-time donations, gifts in honor or memory of a loved one, recurring monthly donations, company sponsored match-gift programs, or sign up for workplace giving to make a pre-tax donation each pay period.


CARES Act:  Expanded charitable giving deductions for 2020

·         Individuals can deduct charitable donations up to 100% of their 2020 AGI, up from prior 60% limitation.

·         Corporations can deduct charitable donations up to 25% of taxable income in 2020, up from prior 10% limitation


Tax Deduction:

Individual donors who claim the standard deduction in 2020 will be able to claim a new non-itemized

deduction of up to $300 for cash charitable contributions made in 2020. It is estimated that generally around

85% of taxpayers claim the standard deduction each year, and this provision may encourage charitable giving

among such taxpayers. The Joint Committee on Taxation has indicated that a married couple filing jointly is

treated as a single individual for this purpose and is allowed only a $300 deduction for the couple
