Charities are feeling the squeeze

Times are especially tough for nonprofits, many of whom, because of COVID-19, canceled fundraisers that account for much of their annual revenue. We thought it was an opportune time to share selections from a list of nonprofits that appeared in a Last-Minute Giving Guide in our Dec. 27 issue, as well as links for newly formed funds established to address community needs due to the shutdown.

As part of the recently enacted federal stimulus package, taxpayers who take the standard deduction on their 2020 tax return will still be able to deduct up to $300 in charitable donations.
