The 2017 tax law vastly changed the charitable giving environment, decreasing taxes on the wealthiest Americans, doubling the standard deduction, and increasing the gift and estate tax exemptions, among other items. The Charitable Giving Coalition, made up of hundreds of charities and associations involved in providing philanthropic services to communities across the country, is examining the impact of these tax changes on charitable giving throughout 2018 and beyond.
We encourage you to take this very short survey (nine questions) about the need for services in your community and giving trends at your organization over the past six months or so.
This information will be used to communicate with policy makers, including members of Congress, about how the tax changes are affecting giving and whether or not additional legislation is warranted to correct problems and help increase giving. We need both quantitative responses (numbers and percentages) as well as qualitative responses to help frame giving and service challenges in our communities.
Please complete the survey by July 20, 2018. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org at AFP.
Thank you for participating in this survey. The Charitable Giving Coalition will be conducting similar short surveys throughout the year to track giving changes and trends.
