Independent Sector Defends Charitable Deduction

Politico, a newspaper widely circulated in Washington, D.C., published a two-page ad from Independent Sector on Monday that provided a straightforward message to Congress and President Barack Obama: “Don’t push charities over the fiscal cliff.” The ad, signed by 945 organizations, urges Congress and the president to “preserve the charitable deduction’s powerful incentive for giving” as they negotiate a deal to avert tax increases and spending cuts scheduled to begin Jan. 2.
