Today, we at 501(c) Agencies Trust announce the addition of Hearts with a Mission, based in Oregon, as a new program participant.

501(c) Agencies Trust is a group of 1,500 nonprofits from across the country that have elected to not participate in the state unemployment tax system. Instead, we have chosen to become employers who reimburse the state for our unemployment costs. 501(c) Agencies Trust began in 1982 and collectively we save more than $20 million annually.

Hearts with a Mission is a faith-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Jackson County, Oregon. The organization is licensed as a Child Caring Agency to provide services for homeless, runaway and transitional living youth, ages 10-17.  All services provided are confidential and free of charge. Hearts With A Mission services are available to all eligible youth in Jackson County, Oregon regardless of race, color, sex, national origin, religion, sexual orientation or disability. Youth from outside of Jackson County are screened on a case-by-case basis and upon bed availability.

Nonprofits Have Options

Federal law allows 501(c)(3)s, like Hearts with a Mission, to stop paying their unemployment taxes and to self fund their own programs. Doing so can save organizations 40 to 60 percent on those unemployment insurance costs. At 501(c) Agencies Trust, we help organizations manage their unemployment expenses, provide employers with a certified educational series, provide separated employees with reemployment services and offer HR Services including unlimited access to a staffed hotline.

501(c) Agencies Trust consists of both large national agencies such as Boys and Girls Clubs, Y-USA, Feeding America and United Cerebral Palsy as well as smaller stand-alone organizations.
