The Charitable Giving Coalition (CGC) – a group of over 60 national nonprofit and foundation organizations, including ACR – will contact every officially declared candidate that is featured in major polls for the 2016 election for President of the United States urging them to support the full preservation of the charitable deduction.
“We realize that you will consider a number of policy issues – such as the budget, tax reform and other issues impacting tax policy – over the course of your campaign. As you contemplate any changes to the tax code, we respectfully request your support for preserving the full scope and value of the charitable deduction,” the coalition wrote in a letter to the candidates.
The letter is signed by more than 40 charitable organizations from across the country. As other candidates jump into the race and are featured in major polls, regardless of party, the CGC will send the letter to them as well. The full letter to the candidates can be read by clicking here.
