“Money, Politics and the IRS:
What’s the Future of Your Charitable Giving?”DATE and TIME: Wednesday, April 15, 2015
from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.WHERE: Augustus B. Turnbull III | Florida State Conference Center | 555 W. Pensacola St. Tallahassee, FL 32306WHAT: Controversy abounds over the use of so-called “dark money” by certain nonprofits that under IRS Code can currently engage in lobbying and political activity, but do not have to disclose their donors. However, many have labeled nonprofit giving as Americans’ right to free speech, citing the importance of donors engaging privately with organizations that multiply their voices in the “public square.”Adding to the dispute, after facing a flood of newly-proposed nonprofit organizations filing to gain 501(c)(4) status under IRS Code, the IRS used conservative terms such as “tea party” and “patriot” to flag applicants for extra scrutiny.These revelations and more have heightened the public deliberation over this line in the sand: How should the government regulate nonprofits?We invite you to join The James Madison Institute as we host Public Citizen and The Heritage Foundation in a debate over the future of your charitable giving.FREE EVENT with RSVP!RSVP: Click here to RSVP today!
