COF Briefing on the Hill: Opportunities to Encourage Charitable Giving
This week, the Council on Foundations will participate in a briefing on Capitol Hill—organized in partnership with Independent Sector—that will highlight opportunities, such as #GivingTuesday, that promote and encourage charitable giving. The is part of the Council on Foundations' work to revive the Philanthropy Caucuses in the House and Senate.
The briefing will also emphasize the importance of taking action on charitable "tax extenders" before the year's end by featuring speakers from the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors whose work is supported directly by these provisions.
The event will feature remarks from two of the Caucus co-chairs, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) and Representative Pat Tiberi (R-OH-12), as well as from Representatives Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI-2), and Debbie Dingell (D-MI-12).
