Despite the opposition of The Nonprofit Alliance (TNPA) and many organizations involved in third-party data, on September 14, 2023, the California Legislature adopted SB 362, which would be harmful to nonprofits that fundraise in California. The legislation would create a “delete my information” provision whereby consumers/donors could request removal from all California-registered data brokers — there are over 500 California-registered data brokers — with a single click.
On July 19, The Nonprofit Alliance (TNPA) conducted another of its Capitol Hill Days. This one was special on two levels. It was TNPA’s first in-person Hill Day since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic — TNPA conducted six virtual Hill Days via Zoom meetings with members of Congress and their staffs between then and April 2023 — and it was TNPA’s first-ever Catholic Development Council (CDC) Hill Day, with members of the CDC joining us.
Following the May 17 bipartisan introduction of the House version of the Universal Charitable Deduction bill, the legislation has added four new cosponsors. The legislation was originally introduced by a group led by Representative Blake Moore (R-UT), along with Representatives Chris Pappas (D-NH), Michelle Steel (R-CA), and Danny Davis (D-IL). Now with the additional cosponsors, a total of eight representatives have signed onto the legislation. Their legislation H.R. 3435, the Charitable Act, is identical in language to the companion Senate bill with the same name, S. 566, the Charitable Act, which was introduced on February 28 by Senators James Lankford (R-OK) and Chris Coons (D-DE).
