Eugene R. Tempel, founding dean of the Indiana University School of Philanthropy and former president of the IU Foundation, has been selected to testify at a congressional hearing this week examining the impact of tax policies on charitable giving.

At the Feb. 14 hearing in front of the House Committee on Ways and Means, Tempel is expected to provide testimony detailing the importance of charitable giving to U.S. society, and the potential impact on giving of limiting tax benefits for charitable donations.
