Critics Blast IRS Plan to Collect Donors’ Personal Data

Critics Blast IRS Plan to Collect Donors’ Personal Data

Printer-friendly version

Tim Delaney, president and chief executive of the National Council of Nonprofits, told TheNonProfit Times that he was “dumbfounded” by the proposal because the IRS was trying to fix something that wasn’t broken. Delaney, whose organization represents some 25,000 nonprofits, said the process of nonprofits collecting donors’ personal information could open the door for scam artists.

Moreover, he said, charities could not only lose donations from wary contributors, but also would have to increase data security and insurance expenditures in order to handle the additional information. And they might have a tough time recruiting board members because of associated liabilities.
