 +Be on the alert if you are a church, mosque, synagogue or other type of nonprofit organization! The Tax  Cuts and Jobs Act from 2017 includes a tax which will hit you up for taxes on the parking and transportation benefits you provide to employees. In essence this is a tax on the organization itself. And it's also one which will use some controversy once people are made aware that it is there. It has already been noticed that this is the first time in U.S. history that houses of worship have been taxed. And beyond the tax are regulatory requirements which could impose additional costs. Fortunately a new bill has been introduced which would eliminate this new cost. It's called the LIFT Act for Charities, so be on the lookout and be ready to voice your suppoertvoice your support.

To increase the likelihood of your church winning a grant from a foundation or even a corporation, focus your campaign on what you will be doing for the local community. For instance, if you have a building campaign you may be more likely to receive grant funds if the purpose of the new or improved structure benefits youth and things like sports programs, arts, or homework help. Or perhaps you will be making improvements to areas that can be used as temporary or weeknight shelters for the homeless. Many churches have building campaigns that are at least partially for new preschool facilities. Anything that demonstrates a strong caring for and link to the community will put you in good stead at grant decision time.
