Op-Ed Surge Calls for America Gives More Vote

Posted By Adam Donaldson, Monday, September 15, 2014

UPDATE 10/1/2014

The U.S. Senate adjourned for the November elections without passing the America Gives More Act, a bill to promote giving to the work of charitable nonprofits in communities across the country. 

It is essential that individuals who support the work of charitable nonprofits tell Senators and Representatives while they are home for the elections that the America Gives More Act is must-pass legislation that they must enact before the end of the year.

Nonprofit organizations and foundations have united in an advocacy effort to encourage Majority Leader Harry Reid, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and their colleagues to bring H.R. 4719 to a floor vote.  A recent surge in op-eds in local papers, nonprofit magazines, and political journals across the country has added to calls and letter campaigns.

The most recent is by Vikki Spruill, President of the Council on Foundations, Protect giving: A chance for real bipartisanship.

If you are reading this before September 23, please join the Association of Baltimore Area Grantmakers in asking Senators to support charitable giving.  Read below or click here for the previous invitation to action.
