Support Relief for Nonprofits in Health Care Legislation! - (November 2, 2009)

Washington, D.C. - Please add your voice as the nonprofit community - the nation's fourth largest workforce, employing more than 13 million workers - asks Congress to provide the same credits and subsidies for health care coverage as are being offered to the for-profit business community.

In a recent survey by the Nonprofit Listening Post, a full third of responding orchestras that provide health insurance said the increasing cost is one of their organizations' top challenges. Among orchestras that do not provide health insurance, the high cost of premiums was the most significant prohibiting factor. These results are consistent across nonprofit employers.

This week, the House will begin debating its health care reform bill, while the Senate works to combine multiple reform proposals into a single bill.

Please contact your members of Congress and ask that health care reform provides nonprofit employers relief and incentives comparable to their for-profit counterparts.

While the League has not taken a position on other aspects of health care reform proposals under debate, we fully support improving our nation's health care system.

Contact Congress Today!
