GDPR for Catholic Nonprofits: What Europe's New Data Law Means for Catholic Nonprofits

Posted by National Catholic Development Conference on 5/8/18 1:00 PM

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), EU legislation to protect data, will go into effect on May 25. The GDPR applies to any business or organization that offer goods or services or collects data from residents in the EU, regardless if they are for-profit or not-for-profit entities.

Congress and the new administration are looking at lowering charitable contribution limits. And they’re also considering lower marginal income tax rates, which would reduce the value of charitable deductions. Many nonprofits are still digging their way out of the fundraising hole the Great Recession of 2007-09 dropped them into. And our national turmoil is most likely diverting dollars away from religious causes and toward political controversy.
