HARTFORD, CT --A federal tax law reducing the incentive for charitable giving and Connecticut’s continual budget woes are putting a squeeze on the state’s nonprofits, according to experts in the field. The Connecticut Council for Philanthropy and the Connecticut Community Nonprofit Alliance surveyed the state’s nonprofits earlier this year and found 43 percent received or expected to receive fewer donations in 2019 as a result of federal tax law changes, according to data published in May. Individual charitable giving nationwide increased 6 percent from 2015 to 2016, but it decreased 4.5 percent in Connecticut, from $3.81 billion to $3.32 billion, according to CCP’s Connecticut Giving Reports from 2018 and 2019.

Not funding the grant program would mean that while the state is generating a massive surplus for this fiscal year, as much as $1.6 billion, we would still cut assistance to community nonprofits that provide substance abuse and mental health services, house the homeless, provide residential and day programs for people with developmental disabilities, help people re-enter the community from prison, and promote arts and cultural programs that keep our communities vibrant, to name just a few of the vital programs nonprofits provide.
