Your Actions Made the Difference - Thank You!
Throughout Oregon's 2017 legislative session, the Nonprofit Association of Oregon was working and advocating on your behalf. There were also many nonprofits advocating for specific legislation supporting the missions and communities they serve - our hats off to them on their hard work! During the session NAO shared policy alerts/updates and asked you to take action on concepts and bills that would either help or hurt all charitable nonprofits working in Oregon. With the declaration of "Sine Die" (end of session) for Oregon's 2017 legislative session on Friday, July 7, we wanted to update you on the work with this final legislative session report detailing where Oregon's legislature landed on bills that were under consideration this session.
Charitable Deduction - There were no bills brought forward in session to cut or curtail the charitable deduction. NAO worked hard behind the scenes in partnership with the Oregon Community Foundation and a coalition of organizations to ensure that the charitable deduction was not considered for incorporation into any piece of legislation.
