501(c) Agencies Trust announced today the addition of Southwest Human Development 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.

Southwest Human Development is Arizona’s largest nonprofit dedicated to early childhood development. Since their founding in 1981, Southwest Human Development has been a leader in providing services for children ages birth to five and their families in the areas of
Child Development and Mental Health, Easter Seals Disabilities Services, Early Literacy and Head Start, Child Welfare, and Professional Development and Training.

Southwest Human Development serves 135,000 children and their families each year through more than 40 programs and services that focus on preventing problems before they start or, when they already exist, providing opportunities to intervene as early and effectively as possible.

By working with 501(c) Agencies Trust, Southwest Human Development is taking advantage of their option to leave the Arizona 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.

Southwest Human Development 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.

“Southwest Human Development strengthens the foundation Arizona’s children need for a great start in life,” said John Huckstadt, Founder of 501(c) Agencies Trust. “Through their partnership with 501(c) Agencies Trust, they have taken a tax liability and turned it into budget dollars to invest in their mission.”

501(c) Agencies Trust works closely with both large national organizations such as Boys and Girls Clubs, Y-USA, Feeding America and United Cerebral Palsy as well as smaller stand-alone nonprofits. Nonprofit services center around a program designed to save organizations money by helping them control unemployment costs while being supported by a team of experts with decades of experience.
