Help Nonprofits Help Delaware with HR5806

Posted By John Baker, Tuesday, December 9, 2014

Hi All –

I come to you today to bring you the latest on three key tax incentives critical to our work.  I have talked to each of our Congressional offices in Washington and made them aware that it is critically important that our Delaware Congressional delegation votes to make the three charitable tax incentives (extenders) permanent before adjourning; our communities rely on work funded by these incentives and we are counting on their help. They need to support HR5806.

Congress has only a few more days to pass legislation to extend key charitable giving incentives on a permanent basis. Senators are expected to pass a short-term tax bill that essentially renews three charitable giving incentives for only three weeks. That’s not good enough for the people and communities that nonprofits are able to serve through donations of money from IRA rollovers, and through donations of food to food banks and land for conservation purposes.

Congress needs to make permanent the three charitable tax incentives – the IRA Rollover, the enhanced deduction for donations of food inventories and for donations of conservation easements – so that all nonprofits can plan for the future and secure support for their work.

Leaders in the House and Senate are now considering passing a separate bill to make the charitable provisions permanent. This is HR5806.

The nonprofit community is on the verge of achieving the longstanding policy goal of securing permanent extension of these key giving incentives.

Taking Action???

I have spoke with our US Delegation and believe that they are going to support HR5806, but If you want to take action, then call or email Delaware’s Congressional Delegation and ask them to:

Make the three charitable tax incentives (extenders) permanent before adjourning; our communities rely on work funded by these incentives and we are counting on your help. Vote in favor of HR5806.

By Phone:

Call the Capitol switchboard (202-224-3121) and ask to be connected to your Senators’ and Representative’s offices.

Electronic contact:

Sen. Carper: http://www.carper.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/email-senator-carper

Sen. Coons: http://www.coons.senate.gov/contact/

Rep. Carney: https://forms.house.gov/carney/webforms/email-me.shtml

Send them this message, along with any other information about how the expired giving incentives have helped your nonprofit perform work in their communities:

Make the three charitable tax incentives (extenders) permanent before adjourning; our communities rely on work funded by these incentives and we are counting on your help. Vote yes on HR5806.

Thank you and as always you can reach me at jbaker@delawarenonprofit.org or 302.777.5500
