Charitable Giving under the CARES Act

The federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act expanded tax deductions for charitable giving. For taxpayers who take the standard deduction, the CARES Act created an above-the-line deduction of up to $300 for cash donations made in 2020. For taxpayers who itemize, the deduction limit for charitable donations was increased. Consult a tax advisor for additional information on how you can support Children’s Hospital Colorado under these expanded charitable giving rules.

Give through your Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)

A donor-advised fund, or DAF, is a personal charitable vehicle that donors can establish at a public charity such as a community foundation or financial institution. A DAF allows donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate income tax deduction, and recommend grants from the fund over time to qualified nonprofits, such as Children's Hospital Colorado Foundation.

Currently, donors can recommend grants to Children's Hospital Colorado Foundation from Fidelity® Charitable, Schwab® Charitable, and Greater Kansas City Community Foundation through the link below. More sponsoring charities may be added in the future, so please check back if your fund isn’t currently listed. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact us at 720-777-1700 or
