2020 Charitable Donations

Today is giving Tuesday, December 1, 2020. Consider donating to NIBGA.

Northern Indiana Bluegrass is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Charitable  donations to the club are deductible from your taxes. The recently enacted government stimulus bill (the "CARES Act") provides some additional tax relief for donors. This makes it easier to give and save at the same time.

To encourage charitable giving in 2020, the CARES Act includes two tax provisions that reward people who donate to charity.

First, a new "above-the-line" deduction of up to $300 is allowed for cash donations to charity in 2020.  You can't claim this deduction if you itemize deductions on your 2020 tax return (i.e., you must claim the standard deduction).

For taxpayers who do itemized on their 2020 return, the 60% of adjusted gross income limit that normally applies to cash contributions is waived. That means you can deduct more of your charitable cash contributions this year.

Send contributions to NIBGA, 5034 Wapiti Dr., Fort Wayne, IN 46804

If you have questions, seek help from your tax advisor.

Celebrating their 60th Wedding Anniversary!!

Jim and Linda Winger met while working at the St Joe Paper company in Hartford City, IN and were married November 29, 1960. The couple settled in Fort Wayne, IN where Jim worked at IBM for 40-years. Linda earned her Masters degree in Fine Arts at IPFW and mentored many students. 

Jim and Linda retired from their successful careers and then spent the next 30 years as President and Treasurer of the Northern Indiana Bluegrass Association. We are so grateful for their commitment, time, and talents, towards making the following 60+ Tristate Bluegrass Festivals so successful. 

The Wingers still reside in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where they enjoy listening to and playing Bluegrass music, camping, time with family, and working on their many side projects.
