In a special report (How America Gives) released in October 2017, the Chronicle of Philanthropy revealed that fewer Americans are reporting charitable giving on their tax returns.

Is it really on the decline or are nonprofits missing the boat?

Join us for a discussion of the report’s findings and what they mean for the Indianapolis nonprofit community. Jen Pendleton, vice president of Aly Sterling Philanthropy, and Sarah Nathan, associate director of public programs at The Fund Raising School, will lead the discussion.

Come early for our partner preview hour!

Visit the Speak Easy classroom for product demos and Q&A with our friends from Bloomerang, Boardable and Brackets for Good.
