Baby and Mother Items
Many of our pregnancy clients do not have the money to purchase clothes, diapers, maternity items, blankets, or the basics for a new baby. We give new moms a beautiful basket filled with many of these donated items. Please consider donating these items for an expectant mother to show her the support she needs at a time when she may be abandoned by others. You may drop off donated items at either our Escondido or Mission Valley locations.

- Smaller gifts, up to $300, now 100% deductible. With the new Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act individuals can deduct up to $300 whether or not they itemize their deductions. This deduction can be used for contributions of cash, credit card, checks, but not for gifts of stock.
- Larger gift deduction raised up to 100%. The new Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act allows individuals to deduct it up to 100% of their adjusted gross income (AGI) for the year 2020. Donors who use this provision must tell the IRS. This is helpful for individuals making major gift donations and could allow a person to make charitable gift eliminating their tax burden. Any contributions in excess of total AGI may be carried forward for up to five additional years.
- Corporations have much greater incentives to make charitable gifts. Usually giving is limited to 10% of taxable income for the corporation. With the new Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act that limit has been increased to 25% of the taxable income, making charitable gifts much more attractive to business donations.
