"Their combined giving totaled $10.1 billion, or 6.9 percent, of the $146 billion in charitable donations that Americans deducted on their income tax returns in 2000. "

"Deducted on their income tax returns". What would they have given from their hearts if it were not tax deductible? Wonder if the calculators factored in a charitable percent for those taking the standard deduction?

What would gifts be if taxes were lowered? What were they at higher levels?
