Join Philanthropy’s Day of Action on the Charitable Act
The Council will join our partner, United Philanthropy Forum, for a day of action on October 4 to promote the Charitable Act (S.566/H.R.3435). Small charitable gifts increased after Congress temporarily enacted a charitable deduction for nonitemizers in 2020. According to IRS data and analysis by the National Council of Nonprofits, those nonitemizers donated $10.9 billion that year. With added pressures on the sector, especially with the threat of a government shutdown, Congress can take meaningful action to support nonprofits and philanthropies by supporting the Charitable Act.
Join foundation and nonprofit peers in reaching out to your members of Congress to ask them to support this legislation, or consider meeting with their offices virtually to discuss the importance of charitable giving.
Take Action: Ask your lawmakers to cosponsor the Charitable Act (S. 566/H.R. 3435).
