Arts Advocacy Alert – Senate Tax Reform Bill Restricts Charitable Giving, contact your senator today!

Arts Advocates!
We recently received an alert from Americans for the Arts urging all arts advocates to take action on the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,” a federal tax reform bill that could allow Congress to harm the financial health of charities in our state and nation.
Georgia residents are specifically tasked with contacting Senator Johnny Isakson, who is a part of the Senate Finance Committee in charge of tax reform, to express the need to protect the ability for charities and arts nonprofits to receive charitable gifts.
Learn more about the Bill and how it would affect charitable giving on the Americans for the Arts Action Fund site, and generate an email letter via at this link.
