Today, we at 501(c) Agencies Trust announce the addition of San Jose Foothill Family Community Clinic as a new program participant.
501(c) Agencies Trust is a group of 1,500 nonprofits 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.
In 1996, the San Jose Foothill Family Community Clinic was established by several private physicians and began providing comprehensive primary medical care to the under-served community in East San Jose. In 2006, the clinic received recognition as a Federally Qualified Health Center, along with funding assistance from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to aid those patients who could not afford medical and dental care.
Federal law allows 501(c)(3)s 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 their separated employees with reemployment services,
- offer employers a certified educational series,
- and provide additional 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.
