Ways You Can Donate

Support us in closing the literacy opportunity gap by helping families across Massachusetts develop high impact home reading routines that lay the groundwork for a lifetime of learning, success, and productive, responsible citizenship.

With the new CARES Act incentives, you benefit more from your charitable contributions:

  • Limitations on charitable contributions by individuals who itemize, from 60% of adjusted gross income to 100% and for corporations by increasing the limitation from 10% to 25% of taxable income. Donations to DAFs would not qualify for the increased deduction.
  • Universal charitable deductions capped at $300 for donations made in 2020. Cash only, DAF and supporting organizations are ineligible.
