The Employee Retention Credit – A Potential Source of Sizable Federal Aid for Qualifying Nonprofits

If your nonprofit organization has experienced a significant decline in revenues or if it was subject to a government-mandated reduction in its activities, your organization may be eligible for a sizable federal cash benefit called the Employee Retention Credit.

Because this benefit comes in the form of a “tax credit,” and because the eligibility rules have a number of details, the Employee Retention Credit can seem intimidating. Our team has created an explanatory guide to the Employee Retention Credit, and we have worked to make it as readable and non-technical as possible. Additionally, we plan to offer a webinar on the subject soon to further explain it.

Since the Employee Retention Credit could provide substantial funds to eligible organizations, we believe the leaders of every nonprofit organization should have a basic awareness of the eligibility requirements. A basic awareness will allow a nonprofit’s leaders to determine whether to further evaluate their organization’s eligibility for the benefit.
