A Message from the FSAE Board of Directors

A Message from the FSAE Board of Directors:

The recent death of George Floyd has sparked a renewed and intense call for social justice. It is our hope that this movement is loud and strong enough to compel government and institutional leaders to make substantive changes to policies and practices. Changes that will ensure all individuals are treated with dignity and respect, especially those in black communities who have suffered fundamental inequalities for far too long. Although a good starting point, systemic change begins with us, in our own hearts. It is nurtured in our families and cultivated in our organizations, our communities, and our country.

CARES Act – COVID-19 Stimulus Package Update for Associations

On Friday, March 27 the President signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, providing over $2 trillion for emergency aid to Americans and businesses. The Act does allow relief for 501(c)(3) non-profits, but unfortunately 501(c)(6) organizations were omitted from this round of relief.

However, The US Chamber reports that most 501(c)(6)s are eligible for Small Business Administration (SBA) loans through the Emergency Economic Injury Disaster Loan program. “This program has been in place, but was modified in this stimulus package,” The Chamber states. “One modification is that (c)(6)s can apply for a modest $10,000 advance to help with payroll, and that $10,000 does not have to be repaid.”
