Tell Washington to Protect the Charitable Deduction in Fiscal Cliff Deal!
December 18, 2012
Washington, D.C. - Your voice is needed urgently! There are reports that the latest negotiations between President Obama and House Speaker Boehner to avoid the “fiscal cliff” continue to include limits to the tax deductibility of charitable giving. Nonprofit organizations are mobilizing nationwide to voice their opposition to any limits imposed onto the charitable deduction.
Call the White House (202-456-1111) and the Speaker (202-225-0600) RIGHT NOW and give the operator this message:
- Limiting the charitable deduction limits the work of nonprofits serving community needs. Don’t hurt those who truly benefit – the people who rely on their local nonprofit organizations. Don’t limit charitable giving incentives!
- Give your name, city, and state, and tell what charitable giving means to the work that your orchestra does.
Orchestras have sent more than 3,000 communications to the Hill, urging Congress to protect the charitable deduction. You can continue to weigh in with your Representative and Senators with our ready-to-use online advocacy campaign. Simply personalize the letter with a few details about your orchestra and emails will be sent to all three of your elected officials at once.
Please spread the word and tell your colleagues, friends, and family who care about the work and services nonprofit organizations provide. The White House phone line is open from 9am to 5pm Eastern.
