A recent report from the Fundraising Effectiveness Project found that overall charitable giving in the United States declined by 1.7% in 2022. The report also found that the number of donors to nonprofits declined by 10.0% last year. The decline in charitable contributions is particularly troubling at a time when demand for nonprofits’ services is increasing and nonprofits’ expenses are going up due to inflation. The Center encourages federal and state policymakers to help nonprofits have the resources they need to provide services for their communities by creating new tax incentives for charitable giving, including....

1.     A federal universal tax deduction for charitable contributions. A bipartisan U.S. Senate bill known as the Charitable Act (S.566) would create a non-itemizer, universal charitable deduction. The legislation would enable taxpayers who use the standard deduction to deduct charitable donations of up to one-third of the standard deduction, about $4,600 for individuals and $9,200 for married couples.
