Smart Planning. Creative Giving.

2020 has been a year of challenge and change. We are grateful for those supporting Providence Tarzana Medical Center Foundation, and encouraged by their generosity and compassion. As you plan for year-end and beyond, please consider the following information:     

The impact of the CARES Act.

  • A $300 above-the-line deduction is available to those who do not itemize.
  • An increased limitation on deductions is available to those who itemize (from 60% of AGI to 100%).
  • RMDs from an IRA (and certain defined contribution plans) are not required in 2020. IRA owners over age 70½ can make a tax-free transfer up to $100,000 to charity.

Federal discount rates are at an all-time low — get lifetime income from your gift.

  • In exchange for your gift of cash, stocks and/or real estate, we will pay a fixed lifetime income to you and/or another beneficiary (two person maximum).
  • This secure planning choice gives you an annual fixed lifetime income and a tax deduction. See the rate table below.
