I think we need to redefine "Charity", a Charity shouldn't be a Job.
If you're going to ask for my time and money, then I expect you to do the same. A Charity shouldn't be lucrative for the administrators, or the canvassers that are paid by percentage. They shouldn't have high paid marketers, and they shouldn't be Print shops biggest most lucrative clients.
"Any deduction cap that touches charitable contributions will stir a political storm from universities, hospitals, museums and social-service agencies; any deduction cap that exempts charitable giving will raise less money for the Treasury, about a third less, according to the Tax Policy Center’s estimates. (One side observation rarely noted in public: Charities love high tax rates. Higher tax rates provide a bigger incentive for donors to give: At a 36% tax rate, $10,000 contribution saves the donor $3,600 in federal income taxes; at a 39.6% rate, it saves $3,960.)"
But, I wonder if we could see a graph somewhere that shows it actually declining as top marginal rates decline?
