Non-profits continue to play a vital role in American society. They provide essential services to people in need, and they work to address some of the most pressing social issues of our time. But organizations are learning new ways to connect with donors in their community, many working with James Dean, Director SCS.
NEW YORK - July 26, 2023 - PRLog -- We work with non profits to find innovative ways to raise money and increase public education for a host of healthy causes. But overall donations to non-profits in America have fluctuated in recent years. Our non profit data shows in 2022, donations fell for the fourth time in 40 years, dropping 3.4% to $499.3 Billion in current dollars. This was a decline of 10.5% when adjusted for inflation, writes business development guru, James Dean.
However employing smart non profit fundraising techniques can generate better results. But starting in 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) began significant changes to the US tax code, including increasing the standard deduction and reducing the number of itemized deductions. These changes have had a significant impact on non-profits, as they have made it more difficult for individuals to claim tax deductions for charitable contributions.
And further changes began in the U.S. starting with your 2022 return, taxpayers can no longer claim cash donations to charity while taking the standard deduction. This is a change from last year, where those married filing jointly were able to claim $600 in cash contributions and those filing single were able to claim $300 without itemizing. The special rules that allowed above-the-line deductions in 2020 and 2021 have not been extended. You must itemize deductions in order to deduct gifts to charities.
Also, cash donations are limited to 60% of your adjusted gross income. This is a change from the last two years, where cash donations were limited to 100 percent of adjusted gross income.
Subsequently, the U.S. new tax codes have pushed many healthy grassroots community based non-profits to a crossroads now scrambling to survive. While tax codes in countries like the United Kingdom, for example, enable 100% deduction of non profit donations.
And during the years (2020 - 2022) since the COVID pandemic took a toll on many non profit organizations, unable to tangibly interact with the people most had traditionally relied on to help support the cause. Although, corporations did step-up matching employee gift programs to help supplement the healthy community activism.
