#DonorLove – How to Keep Your Donors Giving

Did you know that around 60% of donors only give one time to a nonprofit organization? Combatting this natural attrition of one time givers is a daunting challenge, surely, but there are ways to mitigate it. For this reason we have convened a webinar centered around loving your donors and ensuring the most upside to retain one-time givers. Join Network for Good for this valuable learning experience, during which we will discuss time-tested strategies to engage, steward, and upgrade new donors.

Capping State Itemized Deductions Would Reduce Charitable Giving In North Carolina

North Carolina’s nonprofit sector is concerned that the $20,000 cap on itemized deductions in the Senate budget would harm communities across the state by reducing charitable giving.  

  • North Carolinians gave $5.9 billion in charitable contributions in 2012, the most recent year for which federal income tax data is available.  

Potential Tax Increases

Potential Tax Increases from Not Conforming on the IRA Charitable Rollover

In 2013 and 2014, North Carolina decoupled from the extension of tax-free distributions from IRAs to public charities (the IRA charitable rollover). The 2016 IRC Update legislation (S.726) would decouple on this provision again for 2015 and future tax years. This tax change creates a significant tax increase for some retired North Carolinians who made charitable contributions from their IRAs.

And, of course the biggest question: Who is funding rural America? Cynthia Adams, CEO of GrantStation, answers these and other questions as well as current trends during this webinar.
