Giving to The Art League

Ways to Support

We’re all seeing the massive impact that COVID-19 is having on our daily lives—personally, professionally, and creatively.

Things are changing quickly but one thing that has not changed is our mission and our belief in YOU, our creative community.

Your generosity and creative spark are what make The Art League’s exceptional programs possible and broadly accessible. We gratefully welcome contributions of every kind and encourage you to be an enduring part of our mission. We invite you to explore our giving options, such as the Annual Fund or Seurat Society, to find the perfect fit for your philanthropic goals.

How does the recently passed CARES Act affect you as a donor?

Charitable Contributions deduction under CARES

  • CARES modified the charitable contribution deduction.  First, it provides non-itemizers the ability to deduct up to $300 of contributions from Adjusted Gross Income (AGI).
  • For those who do itemize, percentage limitations are eliminated. The prior limit for contributions was 60% of AGI, now it’s up to 100% of AGI; excess contributions can still be carried forward and used in future years.

Check if your employer matches

Did you know that your employer may match your contribution? Check the Corporate Matching Programs PDF to see if your employer is listed. 

This is not an exhaustive list – if you don’t see your employer listed here, please inquire about their Matching Gift Program availability.

Wondering how the Tax Cuts and Job Act (TCJA) will affect your charitable giving?

  • For non-itemizers, one option is to make a gift of appreciated marketable securities, to avoid capital gains tax. A second is the charitable IRA rollover gift.
  • For donors who itemize in 2019,  the adjusted gross income (AGI) limitation on charitable gifts of cash to public charities will be 60% of AGI.
  • Charitable split-interest trusts remain a powerful planned giving tool for donors who want to support The Art League and benefit non-charitable beneficiaries in a tax-efficient manner.
  • For more chariable giving tips and information, here are some additional resources:
