We Need a Budget that Supports Nonprofits

Last week, Governor Malloy released a Revised Executive Order Resource Allocation Plan, restoring $40 million to services and programs provided by community nonprofits. While these funding restorations are an encouraging sign of reversing the harmful impacts of the former Executive Order, the majority of line item funding for essential programs and services remain cut.

We must continue telling state legislators to pass a final budget that protects essential programs and services. The longer it takes to pass a budget the more nonprofits and the people they serve will be hurt.

Click here to send an email to all 187 legislators. Feel free to edit the email to urge them to come to an agreement that protects programs and services. Be sure to tell them:
  • 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 on nonprofits. Piling taxation onto the backs of nonprofits will force more layoffs and service reductions, and people will suffer.
