Every cloud has a silver lining. Congress has granted their long-held wish for a universal non-itemized “above the line” charitable deduction so that all taxpayers can fully deduct at least some of their donations --- even those who don’t itemize!
Among its many provision of the CARES Act is a brand new universal deduction for charitable contributions.Taxpayers who don’t itemize may now deduct up to $300 per year in charitable contributions. If you are married and filing jointly, your deduction can be up to $600.
Such deductions must be:
• in cash (no property like old clothing), and
• given to a 501(c3) public charity like Santiago Retreat Center
Since this is a universal “above-the-line” deduction, taxpayers don’t have to file Schedule A (itemize) to claim it. Instead, taxpayers deduct it from their gross income (along with all other adjustments to income) on the first page of their Form 1040.
Your $300 tax credit will send a child to camp for a full week! If you are married and filing jointly, your $600 credit can send 2 children to camp!
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to use your CARES Act tax dollars to bring a young soul closer to Jesus.

& SCHOOL RETREATS
Due to current events, many parishes are unable to offer their usual Confirmation programming. To make sure your Candidates are well-formed in the faith, Santiago Retreat Center is developing a unique program to supplement parish confirmation retreats.
We offer frequent Confirmation weekend retreats, as well as school overnight and day retreats in the great outdoors, compliant with social spacing rules and health directives. Our programs will ensure that the participants meet God where they are, with hands-on training in the faith.
