Alliance For Charitable Reform
Alliance For Charitable Reform (ACR) is a project of The Philanthropy Roundtable that educates legislators and policymakers about the central role of private giving in American life and thus the importance of protecting philanthropic freedom. Our mission is to promote the right of Americans to choose how and where to spend their charitable assets and to defend that right amidst legislative or political processes that weaken it. Our objectives are:
- To identify ways to preserve and expand America’s standing as the most generous and charitable nation by promoting the importance of voluntary, participatory, and active giving by donors.
- To safeguard the freedom of donors and private foundations to carry out their diverse charitable goals and missions, in order to preserve their distinctive contributions.
To promote common-sense laws and regulations which encourage charitable giving and impose strict penalties on violators.
The Independence Project will recruit a group of up to 600 volunteers recently separated from the military at various bases—young veterans who have potential careers ahead of them, but strong perverse incentives in the form of eligibility for disability compensation. These volunteers will be randomly assigned to different groups receiving different supports and incentives. Some will receive aptitude assessments and job search skills—an employment bootcamp. Some will receive a long-term job coach to help develop and execute a transition and employment plan. Others will receive a human capital fund to quickly remove any barriers to employment they may face—training expenses, equipment costs, licensure fees, small business capital. Still others will get a bonus of 25% of all monthly earnings within a certain range for two years. Each of these interventions has been validated with rigorous research in other contexts.
