The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the Act) passed by Congress on December 22, 2017 marks the most significant tax law changes in over 30 years. Most taxpayers will see their tax liability decrease. The Congressional Budget Office estimates the Act will reduce tax revenues by $1.455 trillion over the next 10 years. But all is not good for non-profit organizations as there are changes in the Act that may negatively impact charitable contributions.
One problem that every not-for-profit organization encounters is the need to raise money to fulfill the organization’s purpose. A great way to motivate donors and reduce fundraising pressures on your staff is through building and strengthening relationships with individual donors. This is especially true with major donors, or those donors who make a major investment in your organization.
