Give to the Max Day on GiveMN starts tonight at midnight and lots of nonprofits will be giving their pitch in hopes of getting your dollars. Here’s ours: MNFTC is a nonprofit with 501(c)(4) tax status, a status that is both a blessing and a curse. It’s a blessing because it allows us to be politically active, lobby elected officials, endorse candidates, etc — stuff that’s critical to influencing public policy. It’s a curse because, as a result of our political activity, donations to MNFTC are not tax deductible, thus we can’t participate in fundraising programs like GiveMN and it’s much harder for us, than for a 501(c)(3) organization to raise much needed funds.
When you consider making a donation on Give to the Max Day or any other time during the year, please think outside the tax deduction and consider the organizations that are working to make fundamental changes in public policy — like MNFTC!
