Each month The Nonprofit Alliance (TNPA) introduces you to a member of Congress who is a leader on legislative matters important to our TNPA community, with representation from both parties. TNPA had the opportunity to ask Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) a few questions. TNPA has enjoyed getting to know Senator Coons, and greatly appreciates his focus on the nonprofit sector. We look forward to continuing to work closely with him in the future.
The Nonprofit Alliance has worked closely with Senator Susan Collins of Maine. We know her best for her leadership alongside Senators James Lankford (R-OK) and Chris Coons (D-DE) on legislation to create a Universal Charitable Deduction open to all taxpayers, regardless of their level of income when supporting 501(c)3 charitable causes. This important legislation expired at the end of 2021, but will be re-introduced on Wednesday and Senator Collins will again be active in supporting this measure.
