Action Alert: Urge Congress to Permanently Extend Key Charitable Giving Incentives

by Lori Gramlich

Congress has only a few more days to pass legislation to extend key charitable giving incentives on a permanent basis. Senators are expected to pass a short-term tax bill that essentially renews three charitable giving incentives for only three weeks. That’s not good enough for the people and communities that nonprofits are able to serve through donations of money from IRA rollovers, and through donations of food to food banks and land for conservation purposes.

Leaders in the House and Senate need to hear from you today to understand that passing permanent extensions of these tax incentives is very important to nonprofits and the people you serve.

Time is of the Essence:
Contact Your Representative and Senators Today

By Phone:

Call the Capitol switchboard (202-224-3121), ask to be connected to your Senators’ and Representative’s offices and tell them:

“Make the three charitable tax incentives (extenders) permanent before adjourning; our communities rely on work funded by these incentives and we are counting on your help.”

By Email:

Find your Senators’ email addresses  and your Representative’s email address and send them this message, along with any other information about how the expired giving incentives have helped your nonprofit perform work in their communities:

“Make the three charitable tax incentives (extenders) permanent before adjourning; our communities rely on work funded by these incentives and we are counting on your help.”

By Twitter:

Find your Senators’ and Representative’s Twitter handles and tweet one of the following @ them:

  • Our communities deserve better than a 3-week tax extension; make charitable giving incentives permanent #protectgiving
  • 3-week tax extension doesn’t help the communities #nonprofits serve; make charitable giving incentives permanent #protectgiving
  • HR5771 = a 3-week extension; communities served by #nonprofits deserve better. Make charitable giving incentives permanent
