Spring Series 2018 Part 1 – 2018 Tax and Economic Outlook
Presenter: Jon Pratt, Executive Director, Minnesota Council of Nonprofits
Original Presentation: March 2018
The first year of the Trump Administration benefited from a relatively healthy economy, and set the stage for dramatic changes in the US tax system – with serious implications for charitable giving. While donors don’t decide to make a contribution solely for tax reasons, tax incentives can make a big difference in the amount they contribute. Back by popular demand, Jon Pratt shares this presentation and examines the current status and likely effects of federal tax changes affecting charitable giving, presents an overview of economic trends within Minnesota’s nonprofit sector, and spotlights several emerging issues that will affect this field in the years ahead.
