Independent Sector, a coalition of liberal charities and foundations, wants to cash in on Washington’s bailout fever, the Chronicle of Philanthropy reports.
“There’s simply not enough cash to respond to the amount of the needs,” said Diana Aviv, president of the group. “The demand is much greater and the dollars that are secured from traditional sources are shrinking.”
Call it charity welfare. If you don’t dig deeply enough into your pockets for charity, the government will force you to, or at least that’s what Aviv wants.
