The new tax plan is going to screw over a lot of people, including yours truly. One of the few deductions left is for charitable contributions. The following charities will help a lot of groups left in the dust and marginalized by the Trump administration and Republicans. Donate to them and deduct it from your taxes so you know your hard-earned money will be spent on who and what needs it instead of a private jet for The Doll. Today we’ll examine veterans’ causes, because they fall into many of the tax brackets who this administration plans to fuck dry, despite their continued insistence that they support the troops. These all have excellent Charity Navigator ratings, so you can feel comfortable donating.
