IBM believes that Building a Smarter Planet requires the same foundation upon which societies have always grown: accessible healthcare, effective education, reliable transportation, environmental stewardship and more. The company also believes that its efforts in these areas are inseparable from its business, and IBMers are realizing this vision every day not only as IBMers, but as engaged citizens of smarter towns, cities and communities. In Florida, IBM's annual charitable giving in exceeds $1.7 million. IBM employees and retirees have volunteered over 516,000 hours around the state of Florida.

Urge Senate to Pass "America Gives More Act"

Take ActionAs FPN previously reported, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the America Gives More Act by a strong bipartisan majority on July 17. The legislation makes permanent three important tax extenders - including the IRA charitable rollover - that have been proven to expand charitable giving. It also includes a provision to simplify the excise tax on private foundations. FPN has been advocating for these issues for many years. We now need your help to pass the bill in the Senate. FPN is now urging members to contact Senators Nelson and Rubio to pass the bill in the Senate in September. [Read More & Take Action Now]
