CARES Act Supports Charitable Contribution Deductions

Under the CARES Act, the federal government's coronavirus relief package, charitable contributions up to $300 (or $600 for those married filing jointly) are tax deductible even for individuals who do not itemize their deductions. This means that you can lower your income tax by making a gift to the LSA even if you take the standard deduction. As you think about the range of causes you support during this challenging moment, please consider making a contribution in support of student linguists and those suffering economic hardships. 

You can maximize your donation to the LSA by sending a check instead of using a credit card (which results in processing fees charged to the LSA). Please see the menu links at right for more details on donation options.

The Linguistic Society is a non-profit organization exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The LSA Federal Identification Number is 74-6043371. As a non-profit organization, the LSA may qualify for corporate donation-matching programs. Prospective donors may review a copy of the LSA's federal tax return (Form 990) and audited financial statements here.
