Charitable deductions have been a public policy that has proven its worth for nearly a century. Religious and charitable organizations help the hungry, hurting, addicted, and vulnerable in the United States and abroad. They serve a public need effectively in times of normal stress, as well as natural disasters. Any restriction of the charitable tax deduction could be devastating to their efforts.
Dr. Frank Wright, president of the National Religious Broadcasters, also insists, “Rather than capping or otherwise constraining this longstanding deduction, the federal government ought to expand opportunities for the charitable impulse of Americans to thrive.”
As a non-profit, religious organization ourselves, we agree!
