Sustain Scouting by utilizing the
CARES Act Federal Deduction!

We hope that you and your family are continuing to remain safe during this national health crisis. Our thoughts and prayers are still with you as we navigate these difficult times. We wanted to assure you that the San Francisco Bay Area Council is continuing to work to deliver quality programming to our Scouting families. We are confident that today’s Scouts will be the next generation of leaders across the United States. You can still help us today by investing in our youth through a unique opportunity recently created by Cares Act.

The CARES Act allows you to donate up to $300 (or $600 for a married couple) to a qualifying charitable organization such as San Francisco Bay Area Council, BSA and reduce your adjusted gross income (AGI) by up to $300 (or $600 for a married couple) on your 2020 Federal taxes!

How it works

Normally, only those who itemize their deductions qualify for the charitable contribution deduction. The deduction reduces taxable income after your AGI has been calculated. This new deduction from the CARES Act, on the other hand, is specifically for those who don’t itemize their deductions and would typically not get any tax benefit for donations. 

In short, if you donate up to $300 (or $600 for a married couple) to The San Francisco Bay Area Council, BSA you can deduct your donation amount from your 2020 Federal taxes!

Take note, if you normally itemize your deductions you won't be able to take advantage of this. But we'd still love your support!
