Everyone can get involved in helping people with celiac disease to live better, longer. Here are 6 things you can do right now to support Beyond Celiac and the 3 million Americans living with celiac disease.
1. Give and Raise Money
We have our sights set on a cure for celiac disease. Until we reach that goal, we’ll put our energy into helping people with celiac disease live better, longer.
Give today to support our life-saving work.
2020 Giving Alert:
As you plan your 2020 year-end giving, please consider a charitable contribution to Beyond Celiac, the only organization uniting patients, scientists and the pharmaceutical industry to accelerate research toward treatments and a cure.
Give to our 2020 End of Year Campaign (up to $20,000 will be matched!).
Since capital gains may be high for individuals as we close out 2020, there are clear tax advantages for our donors to make gifts of appreciated assets. If you donate long-term appreciated assets like bonds, stocks or real estate to charity, you generally don’t have to pay capital gains, and you can take an income tax deduction for the full fair-market value. It can be up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income.
In addition, the CARES Act (1)gives donors who plan to take the standard deduction the option to claim an above-the-line deduction of up to $300 for cash contributions to charities and (2) raises the limitation for cash contributions to a public charity up to 100% of AGI (adjusted gross income) for gifts given in 2020 only.
In both cases, the cash donations must be made directly to the nonprofit, not through donor-advised funds or private foundations.
Consult your tax advisor.
