The response to the coronavirus/COVID-19 from the CCAE community has confirmed what we've known all along -- that we are a special community. As a non-profit, we depend on you more than ever right now. A gift right now to CCAE will ensure that our mission can survive, begin again to thrive, and continue to be an anchor in the community.

*Stimulus legislation related to COVID-19 allows all non-itemizer taxpayers (close to 90% of all taxpayers) to deduct up to $300 in charitable contributions from their 2020 tax return and lifts the cap for itemizers from 50% of adjusted gross income to 100%. You can consult a tax professional for more information.

We suggest consulting your Human Resources department to inquire if your company will match your contributions to CCAE.
