Incentives to Give in 2020
The CARES Act lifted the cap annual contributions from 60% to 100% of adjusted gross income (contributions must be itemized). It also created a new above-the-line deduction for charitable cash contribution up to $300.
For Major Donors – CARES lifts the existing cap on annual contributions for those who itemize, raising it from 60% of adjusted gross income to 100%. Any excess contributions can be carried over for five years.
For Non-Itemizers – CARES includes a temporary, non-itemizer charitable deduction up to $300. In other words, you can deduct up to $300 over your standard charitable deduction for gifts made in 2020.
Spartina Society Levels
The large, fan-shaped leaves of the sawtooth palmetto dominate many of Georgia’s coastal landscapes. They create their dominance on the forest’s understory by sending their stems horizontally across the forest’s surface and covering every inch of space. They have also created a close relationship with fire; the fronds are quickly consumed by the flames and help spread the fire. Once the fire moves on, they regenerate with all the new nutrients added to the soil. On close inspection, you can see the small saw teeth that run up and down the fronds’ stems. These “teeth” help protect the fronds from being devoured by grazing animals. On the other hand, fruits of the sawtooth palmetto are an important food source for bears, dear, mice, and birds.
