Letter to Congress on the Charitable Deduction
 
AHCA opposes proposals that would cap income tax deductions or otherwise restrict the deduction for charitable contributions made to NFPs. AHCA recently sent a letter to Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-MT) and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) on this issue as the Committees continue their work on comprehensive tax reform.  To date, the Senate Finance and House Ways and Means Committees have held more than 50 hearings combined, examining every aspect of tax reform, and have created the TaxReform.gov website for public input. 
 
AHCA’s NFP members took the letter to the Hill during the 2013 Congressional Briefing.  We will continue to monitor this issue as Congress works on reforming our tax system.

​What does it take to stay happily married to the same person for more than 60 years?

For Roy and Kay Lewis, residents living in Trinity Community of Beavercreek, a NFP facility in Beavercreek, Ohio, the answer is simple: Compatibility.

“We’re lucky; we just get along well with each other,” Kay says.

NFP Council In-Person Meeting

On March 13, 2013, AHCA's NFP Council held its first in-person meeting of the year. Mark Parkinson, President and CEO of AHCA/NCAL, provided a Congressional update to the Council. In addition, the group heard from speakers on topics ranging from health care reform to AHCA's grassroots efforts. The Council holds monthly calls, and will meet in-person again in June during AHCA's Congressional Briefing.

​About the NFP Council

The NFP Council supports and facilitates the Association’s mission, vision and policy goals in an ongoing effort to ensure that long term care is viewed as one profession, speaking in one voice, delivering a unified message. The Council also has primary responsibility to focus on those issues and needs that arise specific to the NFP constituency.

Vision: To empower NFP LTC providers as they meet the personal, spiritual, and healthcare needs of the individuals that they serve.

Mission:
  • To support, advise and influence AHCA in its global mission to help LTC providers deliver high quality care and services to America’s frail, elderly and disabled.
  • To use Council members’ in-depth, NFP-specific expertise to strengthen AHCA member services, cultivate Association leadership, and provide specific support services to meet the needs of AHCA NFP members.
