Urge Congress to Preserve Charitable Giving Incentives
The nonprofit arts community, like other charitable sectors, relies on the generosity of individual donations from people of every income level who believe the public good is served by supporting charitable organizations.
For nearly 100 years, the Charitable Deduction has been one of the primary sources of revenue for arts and culture by incentivizing giving with a modest federal tax deduction.
As Congress and the President struggle with addressing federal budget deficits, the deduction has been discussed as one possible way to increase revenue by either capping the value of the deduction to the taxpayer, reforming it or by elimination of the benefit.
