Charities are Facing a Crisis, But There’s Help

Dear Editor:
For centuries, people have been donating to charity, supporting the causes and organizations most important to them. Sadly, charities are facing a crisis now—the number of people giving to charity is shrinking. Most charities rely on individual giving to survive. A new bill recently introduced in Congress, called the Everyday Philanthropist Act, helps make giving easier.
The Everyday Philanthropist Act allows employees to designate part of their paycheck to be given to charities of their choice pre-tax through a Flexible Giving Account. You, your family, or your coworkers could lower your taxes by giving to your favorite charity through your employer.
Help make charitable giving easier for the Everyday Philanthropist. Visit to learn more.
