Decoding The Federal Budget and Tax Reform Debate

May 17, 2017, 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Location: Anchor Centre First Floor Conference Room

Tuesday, April 11, 2017

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?

Join your fellow AGF members to hear from Brenda Blunt, partner of Eide Bailly, who will recap the latest news on President Trump’s budget and tax plans, provide a walk-through of key provisions and offer insights on the potential impact to charitable organizations. Following the presentation, Brenda will engage the audience in a Q&A and discussion about strategic decisions the sector may need to consider.

At this session, we also will explore:

  • Changes to views on traditional planned giving
  • The need for new development strategies
  • Diversification of revenue streams

Foundation leadership, staff and trustees are encouraged to join us for this high-level strategy discussion.

Registration is required. This program is only open to AGF members.
