Why is National Nonprofit Day on August 17th?

Well, on this day waaaaay back in 1894, the Tariff Act of 1894 was signed into effect, and with it came the first federal income tax on corporations from which nonprofits and charities were exempted.

What impact does a single nonprofit have on the world?

On this great day that is National Nonprofit Day, we’d like to share some of the wonderful achievements our partners have made on their journey to make the world a better place.

  • OurCalling raised over $4M using Harness to help the homeless to live a healthy and sustainable lifestyle by building lasting relationships and making disciples on the streets in the Greater Dallas Texas Area.
