CONCERN FOR CHARITIES
I read with interest your article on the recent government proposals to cap tax relief on charitable contributions ( Charities fight Budget change on big donors, March 30). I would like to express my concern that such a cap would dramatically reduce the funds available to many charities.
As a trustee of a charity account organisation, I know from experience that many philanthropists give very large donations and this source of charitable income should not be neglected. A cap would send out the wrong message by clearly discouraging individuals to donate large amounts. At times where drastic government cuts and inflationary pressures are hitting charities hard, such proposals could have disastrous consequences.
