LIVE WEBCAST from The Giving Institute Summer Symposium – Tax Policy and other Changes in the Political Wind

Over the last few years, the nonprofit sector (organizations and foundations) has seen an increased level of interest on the part of elected officials, particularly on the federal level, in public policy and legislative issues impacting the sector.  These issues range from the charitable tax deduction, to foundation and donor-advised fund “pay out” to PILOTs or other use taxes at the state or municipal level. This moderated panel discussion will take a look at current issues of importance to the sector and how the sector can educate legislators on the impact.
