Thought it had been cured by now? Still no known cause. Still no cure. Still quickly fatal. Still outrageous.

It's Time To Speak Up On Behalf Of 501(c)3 Charities

Today ALSadvocacy makes some editorial comments for your consideration.

In times when we need to get a shrinking economy to grow a little, what better spot for growth than in the good work that charitable organizations perform? We have a tax code that demands that 501(c)3 charities live by rules that give donors some assurances of their good stewardship. We have increasing social needs, and families dealing with ALS are a part of those needs. We have a tax code that has traditionally encouraged charitable generosity. We have a network charities that can perform many functions much more economically than if our government were forced to take over those functions.

So why would we want to change our tax code to make it less likely for a person of means to give generously to 501(c)3 charities?

Today be a good day to read Representative Blunt's statement and do some homework on the issue and speak up on behalf of 501(c) 3 charities that can stimulate the economy in healthy ways.
