Curious about what the President’s budget proposal means for nonprofits?

In a special edition of Nonprofit Advocacy Matters, the National Council of Nonprofit summarizes the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 and the President’s FY 2019 budget proposals. Early this month, Congress passed and the President signed a bill that combines an unusual collection of federal fiscal actions: adopting another continuing resolution (CR) to keep the federal government funded through March 23, authorizing full-year spending authority for specified disaster relief, setting the upper spending levels for a two-year budget, adding to and cleaning up some elements in the recent federal tax overhaul, and addressing numerous other outstanding issues that have eluded congressional negotiators for months. The Trump Administration released the President’s annual budget blueprint of spending proposals for Congress to consider as it develops appropriations bills for fiscal year 2019 that begins October 1, 2018.

While it is true that a charitable tax deduction is an incentive, it is not the only reason people give. Americans, and Oregonians in particular, love their nonprofits. They care deeply about communities, they care about causes and they give in increasing numbers. Read more.
