Join a community of champions in supporting ASA students, of today and tomorrow, as they pursue a high-quality education informed by the performing arts.
Strike a beautiful chord in our hearts! Your annual fund dollars make possible the innovative performing arts curriculum and exceptional academic teaching we see happening especially now during this historic time. ASA will provide 21st Century tools and artistic opportunities that will help our students flourish. As a non-profit public charter school, we rely on private donations to “fill the gap” not covered by state funding. Every gift made to the annual fund holds great importance in the life of all ASA students and contributes to the growth and future of our academic and arts programs for years to come.
To ensure that ASA’s highest priorities are met each year, we must raise at least $1 million through the Annual Fund.
Your tax-deductible annual fund gift directly supports our mission at ASA, where creativity, critical thinking, and innovation are encouraged, developed, and celebrated! An annual fund gift goes immediately to:
CARES Act benefits for charitable giving extended through 2021!
For individuals who do not itemize their tax deductions (roughly 85% of us), the legislation for 2021 extends the $300 above-the-line charitable deduction implemented in the Cares Act. It also allows twice the deduction for couples who file their tax return jointly.
Extension and expansion of the above-the-line charitable deduction
Extension of the charitable contribution limitation
The CARES Act suspension of the required minimum distribution from most retirement plans for 2020 does not appear to have been extended into 2021.
Please note that the above applies to federal taxes only. For more information about how the extension of these CARES Act provisions may impact your specific financial situation, please consult with your tax, legal, or financial advisor(s).
