The New Tax Law:
Make Your Charity A Winner
MAY 8, 2018 | 2:00 - 3:00 P.M. ET
The new tax law is shaking up charitable fundraising, especially for nonprofits that depend heavily on upper-middle-class donors.

For some of the wealthiest Americans, giving has gotten even better.

Learn from veteran nonprofit fundraisers and other experts on how the law has changed, how it hasn’t, and the techniques you can put to work right away to make sure your organization thrives.

We’ll show you how to:
  • Combat misinformation about the charitable deduction’s status
  • Point donors to the types of donations that still have strong tax advantages
  • Help donors understand the value of your organization’s work over the value of tax breaks
