Statement on the House Introduction of Bipartisan Bill to Accelerate Resources to America’s Charities

WASHINGTON, DC – The Initiative to Accelerate Charitable Giving today issued the following statement on the House introduction of the Accelerating Charitable Efforts (ACE) Act: 

“IACG is pleased that policymakers continue to seek a legislative solution to restore the connection between charitable tax benefits and direct contributions to charities. The bill introduced by Representatives Chellie Pingree (D-ME) and Tom Reed (R-NY), and others, is a step toward getting more resources to our nation’s charities faster. It’s a thoughtful and pragmatic approach that takes the policy ideas outlined in the coalition’s statement of principles and puts them into action at a time when charities across our communities need more help than ever.”
