Advocating on Your Behalf

Citygate Network joined numerous other faith-based organizations (including ECFA, CCCU, Faith & Giving, American Red Cross, and United Way Worldwide) in signing a letter to Congress that asks for an expansion and extension of the temporary Universal Charitable Deduction (UCD), scheduled to expire December 31, 2021.

The document urges Congress to prioritize this legislation over the Accelerating Charitable Efforts Act (ACE Act, S. 1981) that focuses on giving to and through donor-advised funds (DAFs). While this letter does not address the relative merits of the ACE Act, it does convey to Congress that most charities/nonprofits have higher legislative priorities with more empirical evidence and solid backing from a majority of national, state, and local charities and nonprofits, including the UCD.
