Reinstating tax credits for charitable giving remains key for nonprofit sector in 2016

Joan Bowman of the Michigan Nonprofit Association (MNA) agreed with the importance of reinstating the tax credits.

“Anytime you can help the work nonprofits do and give hard-working Michiganders a tax break, it’s a good thing,” she said.

Bowman serves as the senior director of public affairs and communications for MNA, which strives to support the sector in a number of ways, including advocating for the laws that allow nonprofits to best serve the needs of their communities.

The Michigan Nonprofit Association focuses on statewide policy, and for good reason — that’s where the vast majority of laws are passed that influence charitable nonprofits.

To underscore the importance of state and local public policy efforts, the National Council of Nonprofits highlighted that in 2014 alone, Congress passed 224 laws while 28,574 were passed by state legislatures.
