The current tax reform proposals would result in 28 million people losing their tax incentive to give to charities. Some provisions in the current proposal could result in $13.1 billion less in giving each year.* This will damage the very fabric of the charitable sector and our communities.

Raise your voice and tell your member of Congress to fight for charities by expanding the charitable giving tax benefits to all Americans.

Under the current proposals, only 5% of Americans are expected to itemize their taxes. It's time for all American taxpayers to have access to the charitable deduction.  Watch the video and take action above.
