CGC Requests Extension and Expansion of Universal Charitable Giving Deduction

The Charitable Giving Coalition, of which AAU is a member, sent a letter to House and senate leaders to request they include an expanded and extended universal charitable giving deduction in the forthcoming pandemic aid package.
