A review should be undertaken of all charities legislation to eliminate the obsolete and archaic, and to introduce flexibility into the laws which will account for social concerns expressed in the life styles of a technological society.

Slipp, Stephen J. (1977). Practical implications of the tax legislation for charitable organizations—two comments. The Philanthropist/Le Philanthrope, 2(2).
Keywords: Tax legislation; Charitable organizations
Abstract: Kincaid expresses concern that new tax laws as of 1977 require stringent accounting, which volunteer-run organizations will have trouble complying with. Penalty is revocation of status, with no room for error. Advocates for civil society input into government policy-making to avoid such
situations in the future. Slipp is concerned with the unnecessary complexity of the new rules for legitimate organizations. Argues that few charitable organizations have the expertise to comply, tight reporting deadline compromises open discussion of finances with the public, specificity of law threatens breadth of activities undertaken in the best interest of clients, and does not account for difficulty in defining fund raising costs. Concludes that new legislation is too demanding on resources.”

pressure on government resources through reduced taxes. Issue was being discussed in the House at time of printing.

Keywords: Charitable gifts; Trusts; Public appeals
Abstract: Notes that the adoption of the Report on Non-Charitable Purpose Trusts would remove any lingering doubt about the validity of trust funds raised by public appeals and allow them to continue more or less indefinitely. It would also provide for variation of such trusts, but the effect of the Report on Informal Public Appeal Funds would appear to be that variation in these particular cases
must follow a different route. See “Is the Public Interest Falling from Standing?” (The Philanthropist, Vol. 11, No. 4, pp. 28-36).
