Protect Community Services #ForAllofUs

The fight to protect funding and resources for community services is only beginning. With revenues continuing to decline, policymakers will be squarely focused on finding ways to balance the state budget over the remaining weeks of the legislative session. But community nonprofits offer part of the solution to the state’s budget problems. By converting state-run services into the nonprofit sector, the State would save as much as $115 million next fiscal year and $1.24 billion over a five-year period. Those savings can be reinvested into community nonprofit programs to serve more people.
Help us reach every legislator and tell them the choice is simple: maintain the expensive status quo or shift state-run services into the nonprofit sector to serve more people in need. CLICK HERE to ask your legislator share their position on this issue.

Contact Your Legislator

The Alliance is pleased to have a new way for the nonprofit community to get its message to decision-makers at both the state and national level.

Throughout the year we will create campaigns on this page that will enhance your ability to communicate directly with state legislators, state constitutional officers and the federal delegation in a simple way.

More than just email, the new tool will allow you to contact your legislators through social media as a way to build support. We’ll provide background information, draft template messages, and alert you to key times for action.

It’s an easy way to be heard. We encourage you to try it today!
