ANTI-TRUMP PROTESTERS TO BEGIN SOLICITING TAX-DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS

[2/15/17]  One of the leading anti-Trump protest groups will soon begin soliciting tax-deductible donations to help activists “resist” the Trump agenda.

The leaders of Indivisible, an activist organization responsible for interrupting Republican town halls across the country, are launching a non-profit in order to help fund their efforts, the group recently announced on its website.

The anti-Trump organization is already soliciting donations through liberal fundraising website ActBlue, although those donations are not deductible as charitable contributions. Launching a non-profit, the activists say, will allow them “to provide shared tools to help groups organize events, communicate with each other, and share best practices and resources.”

What the group refers to as “events” are oftentimes anti-Republican protests.

A group of liberal activists launched Indivisible in the aftermath of Trump’s electoral victory and started out distributing how-to guides on anti-GOP activism. The group now helps coordinate protests around the country. Once the non-profit is formed, donations to the group will likely be tax-deductible as charitable contributions.
