501c Agencies Trust
Since 1982, 501(c) Agencies Trust has saved thousands of nonprofit agencies millions of dollars – money that has gone to benefit nation’s neediest citizens. Over 1,400 agencies across the country – members of the Trust – benefit from the cost-saving unemployment program offered by the Trust. The money they save provides more programs, services and staff for their community programs. Working 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, the Trust has developed an unparalleled program that seamlessly provides deserved benefits to separated employees and services to employers at a fraction of the cost of the State Unemployment Insurance (SUI) Program. At no cost, the Trust will provide any 501c3 nonprofit with over 10 full-time employees with a customized analysis.
