Reining them in cuts government spending.
Homes First's insight:

Charitable Giving Incentive: Not a Loophole
The debate on the Senate Budget Resolution reiterated a point that most charitable nonprofits have been stressing for years: the charitable giving incentive is not a loophole but an important policy decision that is vital to communities.
