Charitable Giving Coalition’s “Protect Giving Day”
The Charitable Giving Coalition hosted “Protect Giving Day” on which 200+ advocates from across the nonprofit sector came to Capitol Hill to ask Congress to preserve the charitable deduction as it currently exists. PAA representatives participated and visited a total of 38 offices. The message from most offices was general support and protection for the charitable deduction during budget deliberations. Most policy leaders believe that progress on individual tax reform will be very slow but that the charitable deduction may remain “on the table” throughout that process. Most offices believe tax reform cannot happen until 2015 at the soonest.
