WASHINGTON, DC – The Initiative to Accelerate Charitable Giving today issued the following statement on Giving Tuesday:
“Giving Tuesday shines a bright spotlight on the essential and impactful work charities do in communities across the nation. Alongside Americans’ giving today and during this holiday season, modernizing charitable giving tax laws can help ensure charitable donations reach working charities all year long. The common-sense reforms proposed by the Initiative to Accelerate Charitable Giving will get money pledged to charities off the sidelines and into the hands of our nation’s charities faster – not just on this important day of global giving but to meet critical needs throughout the calendar year.”
