Council on Foundations Leads Call for Treasury Department to Withdraw Antiterrorism Guidelines

A coalition of more than 40 nonprofit organizations led by The Council on Foundations has called on the U.S. Department of Treasury to withdraw its "Anti-Terrorist Financing Guidelines:  Voluntary Best Practices for U.S.-based Charities" (rev.
