Select opinion and thought pieces by experts, scholars, and leaders inside and outside of the nonprofit sector on the charitable deduction.
ACR is engaged in protecting the charitable deduction through a number of ways.
ACR was established to promote the rights of donors and private foundations to choose how and where to spend their charitable assets and to defend against any initiative that seeks to use the legislative or political process to weaken that right to choose.
Towards that end, we will oppose any legislative proposals that inhibit or diminish private charitable giving, which includes speaking up for a strong charitable giving incentive during tax reform debates. To learn more about ACR’s guiding principles for tax reform, please click here.
