Give to PBRC to Support Equal Access to Justice!
As we navigate beyond the impact of the pandemic, families continue to struggle. The Pro Bono Center of Maryland remains committed to assisting families in their time of need. Pro bono legal services are crucial to keeping a healthy, functioning society, to provide people who can’t afford the help they need.
In the past two years, PBRC expanded our services in response to the rapidly changing landscape. We increased free legal clinics in the courthouse and community locations, hired more staff to assist and address the challenges low-income Marylanders face. You can change a life today!
Your donation will support our work to help seniors age in place, offer safety for children, stabilize distressed neighborhoods, secure benefits for veterans, and assist at-risk homeowners. You can help PBRC engage and train legal advocates to speak for those unable to advocate for themselves.
Under the guidelines of the Federal Cares Act for 2022, the standard deduction amounts increased to $12,950 for individuals and married couples filing separately, $19,400 for heads of household, and $25,900 for married couples filing jointly and surviving spouses. The $300 ($600 for married couples filing jointly) above-the line charitable deductions for single filers who do not itemize deductions and make a qualified cash contribution to a public charity expired as of December 31, 2021.
In 2021, the limit was increased to 100% of an individual’s annual gross income in order to incentivize charitable giving during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, 2022 charitable contribution rules have reverted to no more than 60% of your Adjusted Gross Income for cash contributions.
