Opinion: Don’t Push Charities Over The Fiscal Cliff

Since 1917, our nation’s tax system has strongly encouraged Americans to give back to their communities, and the broad concept of charity on which the deduction is based has given rise to a diverse set of organizations all dedicated to the public good. Right now, there are proposals in Congress that would make it more difficult for food banks to raise money and help hungry Americans. 1 in 5 kids in the U.S. struggles with hunger. Preserve the charitable deduction’s powerful incentive for giving.
