Nonprofits Could Take $13.1 Billion Loss Under New Tax Plans

“A study of the Trump-backed tax reform plan by Independent Sector and the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy found that two key components—an increase in the standard deduction and a lower top marginal tax rate—could cause annual charitable giving to decrease by between $9.8 billion and $13.1 billion. That decrease would likely hit religious institutions the hardest, according to the report released last week.” [Chronicle of Social Change]

The Million-Dollar Question: Will Generation Z Use Facebook?

“It’s no surprise that flocks of young people are leaving Facebook, and it isn’t particularly surprising why they’re leaving, either. With almost every parent in America (and around the world, for that matter) on Facebook, young people don’t want to give Mom and Dad another way to cramp their style. And, especially among younger Gen-Zers, many of them are refusing to sign up in the first place. So it begs the question, will Generation Z use Facebook?” [Nonprofit Hub]

10 Questions to Ask Before Participating in #GivingTuesday

“It’s never too early to start thinking about #GivingTuesday.

Perhaps this will be your first year, or maybe it’s already at the heart of your year-end giving strategy – determining whether or not you reach your individual giving goal or blow past it.

Hold on! Why would anybody want to put themselves in that position?

Many don’t, and choose to instead focus their staff resources on other fundraising avenues in the last few weeks of the year. Just like organizing a major fundraising event, participating in #GivingTuesday carries with it opportunity costs that often get obscured.” [Bloomerang]
