All charities across the United States will benefit from this change....from local food banks, women's shelters, museums, hospitals, colleges, universities, legal defense funds, animals and more!

When Americans plan their estates, they often leave gifts to their favorite charities. For the ultimate in tax-smart savings, these gifts commonly are in the form of a percentage of the donor's IRA account.  

Unfortunately, some of these IRA custodians won't notify the charity when the IRA custodian finds out the IRA owner has died -- they hold the money, so the charity never receives its donor's gift. 

And for the most serious of all, some of the custodians automatically treat the charity as if the charity is a potential terrorist and make the charity submit private & personal information like the employee's Social Security numbers, home addresses, etc. Imagine St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital or the beloved Smithsonian having to prove to these banks that they aren't a terrorist organization! Sound ridiculous to you? These ludicrous policies throw common sense out the window - let alone the excessive time spent and costs incurred by the charities to prove they aren't terrorist organizations. The banks fear large government penalties if they don't insist on this paperwork. That's why I'm asking you to sign this petition.  These unbelievable practices against charities must be stopped!
