CCUSA joins Leadership 18 in calling for support of Charitable Act

Catholic Charities USA joined Leadership 18, an alliance of CEOs responsible for leading some of the country’s largest and most well-respected charities, nonprofits and faith-based organizations, to call for Congressional support of the Charitable Act. The bipartisan legislation would restore and extend the availability of the universal charitable deduction through the 2024 tax year, which will help to ensure that those who can support their communities financially can do so without hurting their own pocketbooks. The generosity of donors empowers charitable nonprofits to fulfill their missions to the benefit of individuals and families across the nation.
