Charities on the Frontline and Making the Best Use of Tax Policy to Help Them

Testimony before the Subcommittee on Social Security and Family Policy, Senate Finance Committee, United States Senate
September 13, 2005

Abstract

One response to Hurricane Katrina was a very generous outpouring of concern and care by Americans throughout the country. Many of our contributions could be handled immediately only because a solid infrastructure of charities already existed. Our many charities are a tremendous source of strength of which we can and should be very proud. On a personal note, I have been involved with charities at almost every level: as a recipient, as a contributor, as a founder, and as a researcher who studies charitable giving and charitable organizations.
