> Tuesday, Aug. 5 -- Independent Sector presents a Sector-Wide Strategy Session on Charitable Tax Extenders, a free teleconference at 7 a.m. This event is free and open to the public, but does require registration.

The legislation would also extend the deadline through April 15 for making charitable contributions, and streamline the excise tax on private foundation investment income. Participants will discuss a strategy for advancing H.R. 4719 in the Senate before time runs out. Speakers include: Wes Coulam, Executive Director, National Tax at Washington Council Ernst & Young; Russ Shay, Director of Public Policy at Land Trust Alliance; Matt Knott, President at Feeding America; and David Thompson, Vice President of Public Policy at National Council of Nonprofits.
