Auction 2020

Friday, November 20, 2020

To adapt to pandemic conditions, this year’s Auction, STA Strong, will shift to a virtual event. Please mark your calendars to join what is sure to be a special evening celebrating all that makes STA strong - the premier education, unwavering faith, the bonds of sisterhood, and the commitment to love the dear neighbor without distinction.

Proceeds from the Auction benefit students’ financial assistance, as well as the education, programs, and facilities provided by St. Teresa’s Academy. This year, more than ever, your support is needed.

Thanks to the CARES Act, donors like you may qualify for new tax advantages. When you support the premier Catholic, college-preparatory education offered to young women at St. Teresa's Academy, you can benefit from recently announced tax deductions.

  • New $300 Deduction: Individuals who take the standard deduction can claim an above-the-line tax deduction for cash donations to qualified charitable organizations, up to $300.
  • 60% of Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) Limit Suspended for 2020: For gifts made in 2020, individuals who itemize deductions can deduct up to 100% of charitable contributions. Deductions for cash donations were previously limited to 60% of the taxpayer’s adjusted gross income.
  • Corporations’ 10% Limit Increased to 25%: For the 2020 tax year, corporations can deduct up to 25% of the taxpayer’s taxable income for any cash contributions made to qualified charitable organizations. Deductions for cash donations were previously limited to 10% of the taxpayer’s taxable income.
