Legislative Round-Up | October 2023

Wednesday, October 18, was a busy day for TNPA, with 14 executives coming from across the country to Washington, D.C., for a day that included ten meetings in the Senate. It was a nonstop effort for our volunteers, who had meetings with three Senators and the staffs of seven other Senators. The focal point of the day’s meetings was continuing to build momentum for the enactment of the Universal Charitable Deduction — the Charitable Act, S. 566, the legislation led by Senators James Lankford (R-OK) and Chris Coons (D-DE).

Remembering Jennifer Bielat

Last week we lost a fundraising industry champion. Jennifer Bielat succumbed to complications following a planned surgery at the end of June that no one ever imagined would have beaten her.
