Your Support Makes a Difference
You can play a key role in ASK’s 2021 season by donating! ASK relies on donations to bring visual arts, performances, art classes and other cultural events to the Kingston and broader Hudson Valley community. Your generosity helps enhance the quality of life in the area and in turn provides economic benefit to the community. The arts are an important complement to community development, enriching local amenities and attracting people and investment to area.
Note that due to the CARES act passed earlier this year, you can deduct up to $300 on your 2020 tax return for charitable donations even if you do not itemize deductions. In addition, the cap on how much of your income which can be deducted for charitable giving has risen from 60% to 100% for 2020 only.
If you would like to discuss donations as part of estate planning or fund a specific program area, please call or email Brent Felker.
