Charitable Giving Deduction in 2021! A charitable deduction of up to $300 per taxpayer ($600 permitted for joint filers) is available when you make a charitable gift in 2021 and take the standard deduction when filing your taxes. This deduction is an “above the line” adjustment to income, reducing your adjusted gross income (AGI) and taxable income. The charitable gift(s) must be cash and must be made to a public charity – cannot go to a donor advised fund (DAF) or private foundation, and can be given anytime from January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021.


When you invest in Wayne County, you transform dreams into realities by supporting non-profit arts, civic, cultural, educational, environmental, faith-based, health, and human service organizations.
