President Trump’s 2018 budget blueprint calls for massive cuts in federal support for housing, public health and other social servcies. Both the president and GOP congressional leaders propose tax reform plans that could dramatically alter charitable giving. As the administration and Congress prepare to debate tax reform and the 2018 federal budget this spring, funders are asking: What changes are coming and how will they affect the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors and the communities we serve?
AGF members gathered to hear from Brenda Blunt, partner of Eide Bailly, who recapped the latest news on President Trump’s budget and tax plans, provided a walk-through of key provisions and offered insights on the potential impact to charitable organizations. Following the presentation, Brenda engaged the audience in a Q&A and discussion about strategic decisions the sector may need to consider.
