We Need a Budget that Supports Nonprofits

The legislature is headed into special session to deal with the state budget crisis – and we need your help! We need you to continue to pressure the legislature until the budget is passed to:
  • 1.   Make sure that funding to nonprofits remains a priority;

  • 2.   Remind legislators that moving some state-operated human services to nonprofits can save as much as $300 million over the biennium – many millions of dollars that can be used to fund nonprofit programs and services #ForAllofUs; and

  • 3.   Reject plans to charge sales tax or property tax on nonprofits. Piling taxation onto the backs of nonprofits will force more layoffs and service reductions, and people will suffer.

Stay tuned for additional information on how you can best help get the message to legislators. Thank you again for all your help, time and energy throughout the legislative session.
Nonprofits are part of the solution to the State’s budget crisis. The Campaign for Tomorrow’s Jobs has launched a campaign promoting the benefits of investing in community-based nonprofits. Take a minute to watch their video promoting the benefits of shifting services to community nonprofits.
