The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, HR 1, would result in 31 million taxpayers losing their tax incentive to give to charities. Charitable giving will decrease by $13.1 billion a year. The reduced giving will be concentrated in faith-based, basic needs, and disaster relief charities that rely on gifts from middle-class donors. This will damage the very fabric of the charitable sector and our communities.

Join us in fighting for charities and the people we serve by asking your Member of Congress to oppose HR 1 and vote NO.

Currently, Americans can reduce their taxes by giving to charities. This is called the charitable deduction. The charitable deduction is only available to itemizers. 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.
