The Good, the Bad and the U.G.L.I. (Unknown Government Legislation Impact): How the New Income Tax Laws Might Affect Donors and Nonprofits
Speaker: Marc Hardy, Ph.D., Director of Nonprofit Certificate Education, Mendoza College of Business, the University of Notre Dame
Dr. Hardy will share with us the many different views and scenarios of how the new income tax laws may change the way donors give funds as well as how nonprofits charitable organizations solicit them. Gone may be the days of the last minute, end of the year pleas from nonprofits touting your “last chance” to make a tax deductible donation. Will the lack of a tax deduction motivation to donate significantly diminish giving or not? Will the wealthy give less to charity now that the estate tax ceiling has been raised cause bequest amounts to decrease? Are there new laws being considered to address some of these issues? These questions and more will be covered.
