NYS offers new online tool for nonprofits

The Albany Business Review reported that the state has created a new tool to help nonprofit organizations—and people interested in starting nonprofits—find resources necessary to deal with tax and labor issues and find other resources.

Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli said the tools, found on the http://www.yourmoneynewyork.com/ website, will help New Yorkers find federal, state and local government resources.

That information includes:

• General resources about nonprofits
• Lobbying
• Working with employees and volunteers
• Fundraising help.

“Nonprofit organizations are vital to New York, not only for the services they provide but for the jobs they create,” DiNapoli said.

There are about 1.2 million New Yorkers working for more than 24,000 nonprofits with revenue of $133 million in the state, the comptroller said. That represents about 17 percent of the state’s work force.
