This is a call to action for all charitable organizations to join in the effort to advocate for inclusion of immediate relief for nonprofits in legislation moving through Congress. This past week, 55 national nonprofit organizations sent a letter to President Biden and congressional leaders identifying challenges charitable organizations continue to face and seeking support for urgently needed policy objectives that will enable charitable organizations to contribute to the nation’s relief, recovery, and rebuilding.
Those solutions include:
Nonprofit Jobs: Enactment of the WORK NOW Act, improvements to the Employee Retention Tax Credit, collection and timely reporting of nonprofit employment data; and
Nonprofit Resources: Extension and expansion of the Universal Charitable Deduction, protection of the itemized charitable donation deduction, appropriation of emergency grant funds, preservation of the ARPA state/local funds, and expansion of broadband.
