We can do this together!


LATEST NEWS


ASGA’s mission is more critical than ever as we serve one of the most vulnerable populations in our community – individuals with autism and their families – at a time when we cannot physically come together. Like all Ohio families, this is tough. For families with a child with autism, who often have communication challenges, thrive on routine, and depend on the village of teachers, therapists, and other support professionals – it can be a disaster! 

The Autism Society of Greater Akron’s Board of Directors and staff have worked hard to re-prioritize our budget and programs to respond to the many requests we have received for help and support that meet people’s needs today. Our goals have not changed, we are just doing them a little differently.

We have always supported each other, and we will now, too!  We are still only a phone call away.  

We can do this together!

Donor Information

 

In the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES) Congress provided incentives for taxpayers to support their favorite charity!  We hope you will support ASGA!
 
There is a new deduction for total charitable contributions of up to $300 made by an individual taxpayer. This is an “above the line” deduction so all taxpayers would be eligible to take the deduction, even those who use the standard deduction. The deduction would not apply to noncash gifts or to gifts contributed to donor advised funds. It would apply to contributions made in 2020 and therefore would be claimed on tax forms/filings next year.
 
In addition, for those individuals that itemize their deductions, the Act would suspend for 2020 the usual limit from the existing cap on annual contributions from 50 percent of adjusted gross income (AGI) or 60 percent for cash to 100 percent.
 
For corporations, the annual charitable contribution limit for 2020 that is usually 10 percent of AGI, is increased to 25 percent.
