We Need Your Help!

Connecticut’s community nonprofits provide a range of cultural and human services that improve our communities and the lives of our residents.  But community nonprofits are in trouble – the possibility of severe budget cuts could end programs that serve thousands  of people and could cost nonprofit employees their jobs.

Nonprofits have a solution – by providing most state services through nonprofits the State can save millions of dollars that can be used to protect services on which so many Connecticut residents depend.

If your agency can mobilize their executive team, employees, people they serve and boards of directors to contact legislators, we have the power to unleash hundreds of calls, emails and letters across Connecticut.

Check frequently into the Legislative Action Center for updates and information on how to contact legislators and what to say.

Results of a survey by The Alliance on the impact of 10% budget cuts on nonprofits and the people they serve – for example, over 80% expect to lay off staff.

Click here to send a message to your legislators about these reports using The Alliance’s new Contact Your Legislator application.

Remember to follow up with a telephone call within the next 24-48 hours and underscore how your agency, employees and clients would be negatively affected by budget cuts and a failure to increase use of nonprofits to deliver services.
