There are nearly three million men in the U.S. living with a prostate cancer diagnosis. That number is estimated to climb to four million by 2024 as men in the baby boom generation age. Every one of those men and his loved ones will need access to education and support to make informed decisions on the best approach to minimize the impact of the disease and maximize the quality of life. Your donation helps

CARES Act Deduction In response to the devastating impact of the Coronavirus on jobs and families, Congress enacted the CARES Act. As a result, your donation to Us TOO International may be tax deductible.
If You Take the Standard Deduction Before this law, those taking the standard deduction didn’t get any tax benefit for their charitable donations. Under this new law, if you take the standard deduction when doing your taxes, the CARES Act allows for a one-time, above-the-line deduction of up to $300 in donations to qualified charities in 2020. This deduction is in addition to the standard deduction of $12,400 for an individual and $24,800 if filing jointly. What this means for you: Because this is an “above-the-line” deduction, it will reduce your total taxable income by up to $300.
If You Itemize Your Deductions This new law treats your first $300 of charitable giving as extra special. Prior to the CARES Act, an individual itemizing their deductions could only deduct 60% of AGI for charitable giving. If you itemize deductions when filing your 2020 taxes, the CARES Act allows you to deduct up to 100% of your AGI in contributions to qualified charities. Deductions of gifts in excess of 100% of AGI can be rolled over for use in future years.
Please check with your tax advisor for the latest information.
