Altruity can help!

National Nonprofit day is coming up on August 17! Which American charity will you choose to donate to?

National Nonprofit Day was created to celebrate the accomplishments and positive impacts that nonprofit organizations across the nation have on our communities. First, let’s dive into the history of the holiday. Then, find out how Altruity can help you maximize your charitable giving impact!

The History of National Nonprofit Day

Best-selling author and speaker Sherita J. Herring founded National Nonprofit Day to commemorate August 17, 1894, when the Tariff Act was signed into law. The Tariff Act was the first federal income tax imposed on corporations, but it gave important exemptions to charitable organizations and nonprofits in our country.

Those exemptions have helped hundreds of thousands of charitable organizations to grow and succeed in their missions.

How to Celebrate National Nonprofit Day

Today, we celebrate National Nonprofit Day in appreciation of everything these key American charities do for our society—and one of the best ways to show our gratitude is by giving back!
