Paul Daugherty is the President of Philanthropy West Virginia, the statewide professional association of private, family, corporate, community and public foundations.In this interview, Paul discusses philanthropy in West Virginia, Foundations on the Hill, throwing a good party, and the value of the Forum Network. Regarding this week's Foundation's on the Hill, Paul said, "With our Members of Congress our key issues are advocating on behalf of tax policies regarding the IRA Rollover Act becoming permanent in the tax code as well as the simplification of the excise tax on foundations. Those components are so important, especially to rural America, which we represent."
Last week, the United States House of Representatives passed the bipartisan "American Gives More Act of 2014," a legislative package that makes the IRA charitable rollover permanent and simplifies the excise tax on private foundations, both positions supported by many regional associations.
