Nonprofits to Congress: Kill the Bill and Start Over
The bill that passed out of the House and is being considered by the Senate will hurt the work of nonprofits and the people we all serve. It favors special interests and the wealthy over the needs of individuals and communities. It prioritizes the panacea of tax cuts over the promise of real reform. It ignores the clearly articulated concerns of charitable and philanthropic organizations about the adverse consequences of many provisions. With very few exceptions, the bill that came out of the conference committee will harm the ability of charitable nonprofits and foundations to address needs in communities and advance their missions.
