Today, we at 501(c) Agencies Trust announce the addition of Stephen F. Austin Community Health Network 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.
Stephen F. Austin Community Health Network was established in 2008 to help provide healthcare services in Alvin, Texas. Today the organization has three locations that include a women’s health program, dental clinic, behavioral health department and a psychiatry department. By working with us at 501(c) Agencies Trust, they will have more budget flexibility allowing them to better serve their clients.
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 employers with a certified educational series, and offer HR Services including unlimited access to a staffed hotline.
501(c) Agencies Trust consists of 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.
