Legislative Round-Up | March 2024

On March 20, The Nonprofit Alliance (TNPA) had another of its Capitol Hill Days. It was fast-paced, with participants meeting with eight Senate offices, including meetings with Senators James Lankford (R-OK), the lead Senate Republican on S. 566, the Charitable Act (the Universal Charitable Deduction legislation) and Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV), a co-sponsor of the Charitable Act and a key supporter of the IRA Charitable Rollover Expansion legislation signed into law in December 2022.

Legislative Round-Up | February 2024

Whether Congress will agree to funding for the Federal Government to avoid a government shutdown is again a close call. The current short-term funding measure will run out for some government agencies at midnight on Friday, March 1, and funding for other parts of the government will run out at midnight on Friday, March 8.

Legislative Round-Up | January 2024

Congress avoided a government shutdown by approving short-term funding until early March. The temporary measure, signed into law by President Biden, will run until March 1 for some agencies and extends funding for other parts of the government until March 8. Thus, in roughly a month, Congress will face another funding challenge to keep the government open.

Legislative Round-Up | November 2023

The interim funding package adopted by Congress last month runs out on January 19 for part of the federal government, with the remaining funding for other parts of the government expiring on February 2. These deadlines will be quickly upon us, an issue of critical concern for charitable organizations. Nonprofit organizations (NPOs) are already being pushed to the limit to help people in need.

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).

Legislative Round-Up | September 2023

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.

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. I have known Jennifer as a colleague and friend for more than twenty years, and I never saw her give up without a fight. I have no doubt she went down swinging.

Legislative Round-Up | July 2023

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.
