Tax Proposal Released; Charitable Giving Endangered

Republican leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives released the text of their long-awaited tax overhaul proposal. While the legislation preserves the charitable deduction, it makes other changes to the tax code that could reduce donations to museums and other nonprofits by a remarkable $13 billion per year. Legislators need to hear how important charitable donations are to museums and the communities they serve.
 
Tell Congress: Protect Giving by Enacting a Universal Charitable Deduction
