Last week, the U.S. Senate passed legislation regarding a recent Treasury Department decision which limits donor disclosure requirements for nonprofit organizations.

This past summer, the Treasury Department altered a rule which required all names and address of donors of $5,000 or more to be made available on certain tax forms. The newly passed resolution seeks to reverse this decision.

This move comes as similar legislation currently sits before the Michigan House, SB 1176, which would create a “Personal Privacy Protection Act,” that further protects the identities of members of non-profits and other donor information currently already protected from public disclosure.
