The Charitable Giving Coalition, with the help of Faith & Giving, is organizing meetings on Capitol Hill next month to get lawmakers to understand the importance of renewing the universal charitable deduction. A broad coalition of lawmakers on both sides of the aisle introduced the Universal Giving Pandemic Response and Recovery Act (S.618, H.R.1704) last year, which would renew the non-itemizer charitable deduction that was enacted for 2020 and 2021, as well as increase the cap to one-third of the standard deduction, or about $4,000 for single filers and about $8,000 for joint filers.
Help is needed to communicate the importance of incentivizing giving so ministries that depend on private donations can carry on their important work. On November 15, 2022 there will be a reception and orientation from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Meetings with members of Congress will run from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on November 16.
If you would like to go to Washington to be part of this, you should download the invitation, which links to the registration form.
