SECF’s Federal Policy Luncheon
Learn the latest on tax reform – and what you can do about it

When: Tuesday, August 22  12:00pm – 1:30pm
Where: The Duke Endowment  800 E. Morehead St., Charlotte, NC 28202


Tax reform is one of the top legislative priorities for leaders in Congress – and grantmakers like you are paying close attention, wondering how this legislation could affect charitable giving and endowed philanthropy. 

At times like these, you need the latest legislative intelligence from people who are plugged into the action in Washington – and SECF is bringing it directly to you!

On Tuesday, August 22, SECF will host a Federal Policy Luncheon in Charlotte. Register today so you can join us and learn:

  • The latest on efforts to pass tax reform and other key issues in Congress
  • How proposed legislation would affect grantmaking and endowments
  • What you can do right now to promote and defend your work
  • How to set up in-district meetings with lawmakers – and deliver your message effectively

We’ll be joined by Sandra Swirski, executive director of the Alliance for Charitable Reform, which has worked with lawmakers for years to educate them on the importance of philanthropy to American society while defending against proposals that would diminish our field’s effectiveness. Sandra, a tax lawyer, was a senior Congressional aide for two of the most prominent Republicans to serve on the Senate Finance Committee—Senator Jack Danforth (R-MO) and Senator Alan Simpson (R-WY).

We are excited to give grantmakers in the Carolinas the chance to learn the latest legislative intelligence from one of the nation’s leading advocates for philanthropy.
