The Impact of Tax Reform, Advocacy, and Other Issues in 2018

Tax reform is now law. What does that mean for the fundraising profession and the sector as a whole? If tax reform reduces charitable giving, what compromise proposals can we offer to either mitigate the impact or possibly increase giving? What is the importance of nonprofit advocacy and how can you become a compelling advocate? Does a partnership exist between the government and nonprofit sector where we can have constructive conversations and work collaboratively, and if so, how can it be leveraged? AFP’s Chief Advocacy & Strategy Officer and General Counsel, Jason Lee, will address those questions and others while providing up-to-the-minute updates on tax reform, followed by a question and answer session.
