NEW LAW: Special rule for contributions in 2020 only!
For cash contributions you make in 2020, you are allowed to deduct up to 100% of your adjusted gross income. And, even if you do not itemize your deductions in 2020, you still can reduce your taxable income by up to $300 to offset cash contributions. Learn more about the CARES Act.
Some of the most common ways to make a gift to Buckingham Browne & Nichols School are to write a check, or make a gift online with a credit card.
A gift of cash could be right for you if:
How it works
You make a gift of cash directly to BB&N and you receive an income tax deduction.
What is an outright gift of cash?
An outright gift is any gift where you make a gift to Buckingham Browne & Nichols School. The most common way for donors to make an outright gift is to write a check payable to the charity.
Gift provides immediate support
Unlike some other gift arrangements, your outright gift will provide resources that BB&N can put to immediate use. If you prefer to restrict our use of your gift in any way, please contact us so that we can be sure that we carry out your wishes.
Maximum tax savings
You may deduct the full amount of your donation up to 60% of your adjusted gross income, providing tax savings if you itemize. You may carry forward all of your unused deduction for up to five additional years.
Ways to give cash
Most donors make an outright gift by writing a check payable to Buckingham Browne & Nichols School and mailing it to us. You may also make a cash gift using your credit card.
