On February 18, Catholic Law Professor Roger Colinvaux participated at a conference, "Taxes and the Future of Philanthropy," jointly organized by the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center and the American Tax Policy Institute. The day-long conferenced featured panels of experts addressing the ways in which Tax Law has changed giving behavior and how new approaches to tax incentives for giving are vital.

Professor Colinvaux spoke on the third panel titled, “The Future of Charitable Giving,” where he reflected particularly on changes made by 2017 Tax Law. As quoted in coverage of the event by the Chronicle of Philanthropy, “We could expect this to undermine many of the key values to the charitable sector, and the first one is pluralism" said Colinvaux. "If you take away so many donors, what does that say about the sort of charitable sector that survives?"
