Strong alumni support remains one of the School’s most steadfast and proud traditions.

Your Reunion is a time to reflect on the many unparalleled experiences your Harvard Medical School education has afforded you.

Many alumni stretch their annual giving, or give for the first time, to enable their class to present a gift that will make a substantial impact on HMS and its students.

New Charitable Gift Tax Deductions

The Federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act signed in March includes two provisions that provide tax incentives for 2020:

  1. Donors who do not itemize deductions on their taxes can now deduct up to $300 in cash gifts. 
  2. Donors of cash gifts can now deduct up to 100 percent of their adjusted gross income (does not apply to gifts contributed to donor-advised funds).
