The "fiscal cliff" and Charitable Giving

It's passed for now but the legislation leaves unresolved many issues important to charitable nonprofits. Much is still at risk as (a) Congress has only delayed, not cancelled, the automatic, across-the-board cuts to domestic program spending, and (b) Congress and the White House continue to look at ways to reduce the charitable giving incentive, thereby taking away resources to meet ever-increasing needs in communities. Therefore, nonprofits must remain vigilant during the next couple of turbulent months and be prepared to mobilize to lift their voices to federal policymakers.
