About 501(c) Agencies Trust

501(c) Services provides services that allow Washington State nonprofits to save money in two unique ways.

We run the oldest unemployment program for nonprofits in the country. Our 501(c) Agencies Trust members are saving money by reimbursing their claims dollar-for-dollar instead of paying state unemployment insurance taxes (SUI) to the State of Washington. Savings are upwards of 40 percent.

In addition to unemployment, we manage the 501(c) Agencies Trust Group Retro Plan, a L&I Retro program that refunds money to our members based on safe work places and low L&I claims for the entire group. Our average refund over the last four years has been over 20 percent.

501(c) Services also operates the Nonprofit HR Services program. This is a confidential resource available to help support and walk nonprofit organizations through difficult human resource issues while also providing crucial employee management and development training and workshops.
