Everyone committed to the work of charitable nonprofits during these uncertain economic times is invited to join six U.S. Senators in a free event in support of expanding the charitable deduction.


Tuesday, June 2 at 5:00 pm Eastern Time

During this pandemic, charitable nonprofits of all types and missions are stepping up even more in their communities as they struggle simultaneously with rapidly declining revenues. Organizations are experiencing increased costs from skyrocketing demands for their services, while their revenues have plummeted because they have had to cancel fundraising events and their usual fees, ticket sales, membership dues have vanished, and the capacity of donors to give has plummeted.

Charitable organizations need resources as soon as possible. Six United States Senators have crossed the partisan divide to find common ground in support of a critically needed solution: the Universal Charitable Deduction:


Senator Chris Coons (D-Del.)
Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.)
Senator James Lankford (R-Okla.)
Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah)
Senator Tim Scott (R-SC)
Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH)


During the hour-long presentation, each Senator will speak to their personal experiences, share their respect for the work of charitable organizations in their states and across the country, and give their perspectives on how Congress can strengthen the ability of nonprofits to help relief, recovery, and rebuilding during the pandemic crisis and beyond. The Senators will also answer questions and explain what they are doing to enact improved charitable giving incentives THIS YEAR.
