Finance Impact Department e-Letter: What Will ‘Fiscal Cliff’ Deal Mean for Your Council?

Click to open January 15 issue

The Jan. 15 issue of the Finance Impact Department’s e-Letter has been published and is available online.

As 2012 came to a close, we held our breath, not knowing whether the country was going over the “fiscal cliff.” On Jan. 1, the fiscal cliff negotiations resulted in some tax changes. In this issue of the e-Letter, we address some of those changes. And, to help councils with the new tax acts, the BSA National Foundation is offering a special major gifts seminar, “Gift Planning for Your Council’s Second Century,” from March 6–8 in Las Vegas.

Also in this edition of the e-Letter, we explore how some of these changes will affect your councils and donors. Additional articles include fundraising fundamentals to assist your councils in their fundraising efforts during these uncertain economic times, giving trends, Friends of Scouting benchmarks, BSA Asset Management update, and the list of webinars.
