Monthly Advocacy Updates

August 2 - 11:30 a.m. EST

Join us for the August 2  Advocacy Update with Perry Wasserman, CGP’s DC lobbyist, at 11:30 a.m. EST. Lawmakers in the House are fast at work on a new package of tax cuts, dubbed "2.0," that could be unveiled within weeks and then receive a vote in the House sometime after August recess but before the November elections.  In addition to making individual rates permanent, the package is expected to contain a number of other provisions that may directly or indirectly affect nonprofit organizations.  Join CGP for the next legislative update where we'll discuss what we know about this legislation and other key developments taking place on Capitol Hill.

Letter to Secretary Mnuchin - July 13

Senators James Lankford and Chris Coons, Chair and Ranking Member of the Financial Services and General Government Subcommittee of the Senate Committee on Appropriations sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin requesting data on charitable giving for 2018. The request is based on concerns that the JCTA will result in reduced charitable contributions in 2018 and beyond.
