Press Release

NEW YORK, NY – Following the release of City & State’s The 2019 Nonprofit Power 100, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), named 47 on the list in recognition of her work on her Nonprofit Relief Act of 2019, to undo damage caused by the 2017 Tax Act, released the following statement.

“It is an honor to be included on this list of such amazing leaders in the nonprofit world. I was proud to introduce the Nonprofit Relief Act of 2019 to undo the costly new burdens nonprofits are facing as a result of the 2017 GOP tax scam. These organization should be spending their money on their core charitable missions, not these new, harmful costs. As the report I released as Vice Chair of the Joint Economic Committee showed, the 2017 Tax Act is causing considerable harm to the nonprofit sector by increasing administrative costs and creating unfair tax situations. Congress needs to correct this soon or many nonprofits will be forced to cut back services or close altogether. That would be a disaster.

“I want to thank City & State for including me in The 2019 Nonprofit Power 100 and promise to keep working on behalf of these irreplaceable community institutions that make our city a better place every single day.”
