As Congress considers legislative proposals, policies impacting the charitable sector could be on the table. The charitable sector is a far-reaching network of various foundations and organizations serving a comprehensive range of needs and initiatives. Any kind of policy reforms impacting the sector should be achieved through thoughtful, data-driven decisions that include input from the organizations and donors being impacted.
This letter urges Congress to include the charitable organizations that would be directly impacted by reforms early in their discussions.
The Forum encourages all PSOs to review and sign on to a letter (linked below) addressed to Congressional Leaders asking for the sector to be included in discussions about legislative proposals. In order to show a large sector presence and consensus, as well as underscore the importance of this matter, this letter is open to any sector-related organization. Please share the letter with your members/networks, encouraging them to sign on.
The deadline for signing on is May 14, 2021. If you have any questions, please contact Forum Public Policy Director Matthew L. Evans.
