Maximize Corporate Tax Deductions with Charitable Donations

REDLANDS, Calif., March 06, 2020 ─ As corporations prepare for this year’s tax filings, there’s no better time to make strategic plans about how to maximize corporate deducations for 2020. And a great way to lower your tax burden is through charitable giving.

To encourage charitable giving, the Internal Revenue Service allows corporations to deduct the amount of both cash and noncash (in-kind) donations to charities – thus, lowering their own taxable income – as long as:

  • The nonprofit has tax-exempt status (ask for a copy of their 501(c)(3) documentation if unsure)
  • Donations reported on a single return stay limited to 10 percent of the corporation’s taxable income (excess donations can be deducted on future tax returns for up to five years)
  • The corporation retains documentation of cash donations, including written acknowledgement for any gift over $250

As part of your tax planning for the year, consider maximizing your deduction with a donation to Disabled Veterans Charities. Disabled Veterans Charities is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization per IRS classifications whose mission is to fund local Southern California programs that provide services and support to at-risk veterans and their families, with an emphasis on eliminating homelessness.

By making a corporate donation, your dollars will aid area programs that provide much-needed assistance to at-risk veterans, such as transitional and permanent housing, mental health counseling for PTSD, depression, and anxiety, employment and career support, and help for survivors.

“Corporate donations are a win-win by extending our impact and a company’s tax write-off,” said Disabled Veterans Charities General Manager Jo Anne Rodriguez. “We are grateful for the continued support of corporations that donate to Disabled Veterans Charities year after year and hope more corporations throughout the U.S. will take advantage of available tax breaks in exchange for helping at-risk veterans and their families in Southern California.”

A Quarter of Homeless Vets Live in CA. You Can Help.

According to the US Interagency Council on Homelessness, an estimated 40,056 veterans experience homelessness in America on any given day – with one third of them living in cars, encampments or on the streets.

Complicating their living situations is the fact that the majority of homeless veterans also suffer from other health issues such as chronic conditions, depression, PTSD, alcohol abuse and drug abuse.

With more homeless veterans (24.5%) living in California than in any other state, increasing opportunities for these veterans to access permanent housing is critical to promote their health and well-being. By donating to Disabled Veterans Charities, your dollars can make a difference.

Disabled Veterans Charities is a 501(c)(3) that awards grants to deserving programs in Southern California that support disabled and needy veterans, their widows and dependents, with an emphasis on eliminating homelessness. Funding supports groups that provide veterans:

Meaningful Emotional Support for At-Risk Vets

The US Department of Veterans Affairs says that up to 80% of homeless veterans suffer from mental health and/or substance abuse disorders, which often complicates the path into and out of homelessness. Underlying causes of these disorders are varied and can stem from the traumatic environments in which they served or their return home, including:

  • Difficulties returning to civilian life
  • Military sexual assault
  • Witnessing a death or suicide
  • Combat
  • Physical impairments
  • Unemployment, debt or other financial challenges
  • Other trauma

These events can have lingering effects that impact a veteran’s ability to secure affordable housing. To give at-risk veterans the best chance to get off the streets and stay off, Disabled Veterans Charities directs funding to local Southern California organizations that offer programs to help them better cope so they can improve their lives and those of their loved ones.

With grants earmarked towards organizations like US Veterans Initiatives, Disabled Veterans Charities aims to ensure homeless veterans have access to comprehensive mental health services and support that can help them reduce their emotional pain and reestablish positive relationships.
