May Virtual Coffee Talk: How Bills in Congress Could Help Your Nonprofit’s Fundraising

When:  May 26, 2022 from 08:30 AM to 09:15 AM (HAST)
Associated with  AFP HI, Aloha Chapter

Calling all fundraising professionals! Grab your morning coffee and join us virtually on the fourth Thursday of every month for networking and topic discussions. Each month, professionals in the field will be on call to lead the topic discussion and answer your questions. 

Did you know Congress is considering two bills that could help you fundraise more? These bills would provide powerful incentives for individual donors by extending the universal charitable deduction and expanding tax-free charitable IRA rollovers. In this month’s AFP Coffee Talk, we’ll explain what these bills mean, the impact they could have for your nonprofit, and easy steps you can take to help these bills become law. The event will feature Michael Nilsen, AFP Global’s Vice President of Marketing, Communications & Public Policy.
