501(c) Agencies Trust announced today the addition of Integrated Supports for Living (also known as Oregon Housing and Associated Services) as a new program participant.

501(c) Agencies Trust helps nonprofits across the country leave their state unemployment tax system and become employers who reimburse the state for their unemployment costs.

The mission of Integrated Supports for Living is to act with compassion and integrity as they provide personalized access to affordable housing and associated services for seniors and people with disabilities.

By working with 501(c) Agencies Trust, Integrated Supports for Living is taking advantage of their option to leave the Oregon unemployment insurance tax system. Federal law allows them and other 501(c)(3)s like them 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. 501(c) Agencies Trust helps organizations manage these services and any future unemployment claims.

Integrated Supports for Living joins nearly 1,500 nonprofits nationwide as plan participants who collectively save millions of dollars annually on unemployment costs by leaving the state unemployment tax system to become reimbursing employers.

“Integrated Supports for Living provides services and support to seniors and persons with disabilities,” said Darren Bowman, President and CEO of 501(c) Agencies Trust. “By working with 501(c) Agencies Trust, we believe they will have more budget flexibility in order to better help those they serve.”

501(c) Agencies Trust is a national organization created by a dozen nonprofits in 1982 that helps organizations like yours leave the state unemployment tax system and become reimbursing employers. 501(c) Agencies Trust works closely with 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.
