CARES Act
Now is an excellent time to consider a donation (or an additional donation) to the Fisher Center at Bard. Provisions for charitable giving in the CARES Act have been extended in the Continuing Appropriations Act for 2021. Those who itemize may consider using an adjusted gross income (AGI) limit of 100% for charitable deductions, instead of 60%, for the 2020 tax year.

Please check with your financial advisor regarding the deductibility of your contribution.
