What the GOP tax bill means for California nonprofits

Does that mean fewer Californians will give to charity? California Association of Nonprofits CEO Jan Masaoka says not necessarily. 

“The tax component tends to influence the amount, not whether or not you give," Masaoka says.

She thinks people will still give. She just worries they won’t give as much as they used to.  

“You might think, 'Well I usually give the Sierra Club $100, but because it’s not going to help me out tax-wise, this year I might just give $50,'” she says. 

Masaoka also worries that the GOP’s plan could eventually lead to cuts in government aid. She says that would put more strain on California charities that provide social services.
