Thank you so much for your donation to LifeRing Secular Recovery in 2021! 

Did know that the Federal government has raised the amount you can claim for charitable donations on your 2021 income tax returns? Here’s what the IRS has to say about it:

Cash contributions for individuals who do not itemize deductions:

For tax years beginning in 2021, cash contributions up to $600 can be claimed on Form 1040 or 1040-SR, line 10b. Enter the total amount of your contribution on line 10b. Don’t enter more than:

  • $300 if single, head of household, or qualifying widow(er);
  • $600 if married filing jointly; or
  • $300 if married filing separately.

If you want to itemize your donations, you can claim them on Form 1040 Schedule A.


Everyone needs a break. Please take advantage of this opportunity to deduct your LifeRing donation on your 2021 Tax Filing by Monday, April 18th.

You can ensure a 2022 tax deduction by donating to your favorite non-profit before the end of this year. Here’s how you can donate to LifeRing:
