Greetings from Mr. Gault

I hope that this issue of our newsletter finds you well and safe!
Over the next few editions of our newsletter, I will turn the column over to our recent graduates from the Class of 2020.  Before they graduated, they wrote an essay about their time spent at The De La Salle School.  I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did.
Have a wonderful Summer and please pray for the Class of 2020 as they begin the next phase of their educational journey.
Live Jesus in our hearts...FOREVER!

"The De La Salle School gave me hope"
My time and experience at The De La Salle School was a great one.  My grades have given me the opportunity to enroll at  Kellenberg Memorial High School for next year.  As a child, I grew up near Kellenberg and I always saw the Kellengberg students walking around at dismissal.  I asked my parents if I would ever be able to go to that high school.  The De La Salle School has given me hope and a goal that I always wanted to achieve as a child. The school showed me love and appreciation through all the teachers by encouraging me to study every day, to behave and to continue following all my dreams.
I'm always going to be proud of being an alumni of The De La Salle School. It gives the students the chance to be in religious classes and to get closer to God through prayer.  Every morning before school classes, we join as a school in an assembly, and one of our teachers shows the school a prayer song.  Most of the time it really gave a good message that we would reflect on during the day.
I'm going to miss the teachers from The De La Salle School. They taught me how to be a De La Salle Gentleman.

Thank you everyone at The De La Salle School,
Zacarias Guevara

Tax Law Changes Affecting Charitable Gifts
The CARES Act, designed to help the nation recover from the pandemic, contains four important implications for charitable giving.

  1. New Charitable Donation Deduction for Non-Itemizers - Taxpayers taking the standard deduction can now claim up to $300 in cash donations as a charitable deduction.
  2. Higher Deduction Limits - Individuals can deduct cash gifts to the extent of their entire adjusted gross income rather than the cap of 60%.
  3. Increased Deduction Limits for Corporations - The contribution limit for cash donations has been increased to 25%.
  4. Required Minimum Distribution - For 2020, there is no mandatory distribution from retirement accounts allowing retirees to recover losses.  Once they do recover, retirement funds provide a tax-wise option for charitable giving.
Please feel free to share The Dispatch
 with family & friends.
