Nonprofits can defer paying SS taxes – half until year end, half until the end of 2022
'DEFERRED' stampWe have been focusing on the federal loans made available under the CARES Act – PPP and EIDL loans. But a lesser-known CARES Act provision lets employers, including nonprofits, DEFER paying their portion of Social Security taxes (6.2%) for wages paid from March 27, 2020 to the end of the year. You (or whoever handles your FICA taxes) will definitely want to get details here to free up cash flow as much as possible.

IFF offering PPP Loan help
This just in: IFF is an Illinois-based, mission-driven lender serving 10 Midwest states including Indiana and Kentucky. IFF is inviting nonprofits that have not yet applied for PPP loans to apply through them – but hurry! Details here.

“The List”: CNPE continually curates its useful COVID-19 Nonprofit Resources List. You will want to check it for updates.

Our Facebook Group: Join our Nonprofit Community Connection Facebook Group to engage informally with other local nonprofits and the CNPE staff on issues you are either struggling with or have had some success with. Our group tagline is “Learning through crisis to build a better world.”

This is a critical time for nonprofits in Greater Louisville and Southern Indiana to stay connected. We can make all these resources possible due to the generosity of our supporters, the volunteers who present webinars, and the income we earn from membership fees. If you are not yet a CNPE member, please join now. If you can donate to CNPE, please do.

Image of journal & penCNPE Self-Care Tip of the Day: Writing requires mindfulness. Journaling helps bal­ance emotions and the “big feelings” you might be having right now. Journaling has been connected with boosting your mood, enhancing your sense of well-being, reduc­ing depression, and improving working memory. Even 10 minutes a day can help.

Hang in there. CNPE has your back. We hope you get access to the resources you need to continue your mission. Stay well.

My best,

Ann L. Coffey, CEO
