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 – money 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.


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!
