For the majority of Americans, the tax overhaul has altered or reduced many of the financial incentives for making charitable donations. But charitable giving is rarely driven solely by the desire to trim tax bills. In fact, most individuals and families give for a variety of reasons and support organizations in whose missions they believe. Still, 18 percent of donors primarily make gifts to receive tax benefits. As this new tax era ushers in, it is an ideal time to examine why you give as well as the vehicles you use to give.
