ADL Welcomes Proposed Charitable Tax Deduction

New York, N.Y., April 11, 2001 Ö The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today welcomed the Savings Opportunity and Charitable Giving Act of 2001, an initiative proposed by Senators Joe Lieberman (D-CT) and Rick Santorum (R-PA) that encourages individual taxpayers to contribute to charitable organizations, including faith-based charities, by providing a tax deduction.

Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director issued the following statement:

This bill reflects the Presidentís recognition of the important role faith-based organizations play in the delivery of social services without compromising the Constitutionís religious liberty clauses, the dignity of the beneficiaries or the integrity of the recipient religious organizations.

Senators Lieberman and Santorum have used this proposal appropriately to steer the charitable faith-based organization debate toward one that celebrates and amplifies the American tradition of private charity and personal faith and away from government entanglements with religious service organizations.

The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is the world's leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.
