Concerns rise for nonprofits

(Continued)

Whatever the actual numbers become, I think we could all agree that it could be challenging times for the organizations that help those most affected by the trying economic times. Even a small reduction in charitable giving could cause significant strain during a time of growing needs. Recent changes have reduced the ability and the incentive to commit to charitable endeavors. It is time to provide a greater incentive to encourage individuals and businesses to help charities. I fear for the beneficiaries of these organizations!
