Implications of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021

Yesterday, President Trump signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, which will provide $900 billion in coronavirus relief and $1.4 trillion to continue to fund the government. The legislation covers a lot of territory and clocks in at over 5,500 pages. Because of the delay in passage and further delay in signing, there is little time before 2020 ends for donors to ask what will be extended and what will be changed for 2021. Below is our reporting of a few key provisions in this law that will impact fundraisers and donors.

Last week ten intrepid members of the PG Calc team from Cambridge, Philadelphia, Seattle, and Cincinnati swooped into St. Louis to attend the 32nd ACGA Conference put on by the American Council on Gift Annuities.  There were over 500 people in attendance and while I’m pretty sure we didn’t meet everyone, we did catch up with hundreds of clients and prospective clients from all over the country.  In fact, I had a nice conversation with an attendee from Jerusalem and had dinner at an awesome Peruvian restaurant so I think it’s fair to say it was a truly international event.
