  • UAC Partnerships and Outreach Manager, Tivoni Devor Expresses His Concern On Implementing Property Taxes On Nonprofit Medical Centers | Urban Affairs Coalition
    by former Auditor General Eugene DePasquale has stirred an ongoing debate over how tax exempt status is determined in Pennsylvania The report analyzed tax data from 10 counties around the state and found that the amount of lost revenue due to tax exempt public charities ranged from 35 million in Monroe County to over 600 million in Allegheny County Tivoni Devor a Philadelphia based advocate for nonprofits and occasional columnist for Generocity org said his concern is that taxing property held by nonprofits draws money away from the mission based activities of nonprofit organizations These organizations should be able to clearly demonstrate the value of their charitable work outweighs the value of the land they do it on he said It s important for nonprofits of all sizes to better explain the value of their work via their outcomes with the public to counter this pressure he added For more on the Generocity article click here Tags News Publications Economic Development Projects Strengthening Nonprofits Economic Development Health Access Neighborhood and Communities Other Publications Subscribe to our Newsletter About Us History UAC Impacts President s Corner President s Bio Interviews Speeches Board of Directors Management Staff Financials FAQ Office Location Directions

  • Dr. Joyce White Selects UAC as First Choice for Fiscal Sponsorship | Urban Affairs Coalition
    platform Once it was clear to me that becoming a partner with a fiscal sponsor would be so much faster easier and more economical than starting my own 501 3 it was a no brainer Why did you choose UAC to be your fiscal sponsor How has UAC helped the ISEAA over the first year Through the process of educating myself about Fiscal Sponsorship the different kinds the different missions the different criteria the different services provided the national ones and the local ones I realized I needed a full service fiscal sponsor that would handle accounting payroll liability insurance etc I contacted Arun and one thing led to another and within about 6 weeks of being off the Penn payroll I was sitting in the UAC conference room being grilled about what ISEAA was all about and my track record for the past re fundraising etc expected resources I felt comfortable UAC felt like a good organization with good sincere people After that it was mostly paperwork UAC has helped ISEAA in 2 fundamental ways First as expected is the financial management of the funds we have raised My assigned accountant Lee is a dream to work with But icing on the cake and of unexpected great benefit are the capacity building offerings through Coalition U and the summer marketing internship program I and my volunteers have learned so much about how to put ourselves forward in the modern world From social media to Wikipedia to Indiegogo step by step we are implementing these new ideas and skills often with the help of the younger generation who come to us in various ways We try to provide them with a quality experience and they have helped us up our game to reach new audiences How is being at UAC different than being at the University There are several differences between UAC and the University Being a partner in a Fiscal Partner Organization means that if we do well the Fiscal sponsor UAC does well So everyone is on the same page about doing well and accomplishing our mission At a big place like Penn and with the corporatization of Universities there is more of a structure of competition for access attention and resources When administrations change priorities change and something that has been built over decades can be deemed no longer useful to the corporate University even if the discipline and community of peers is still relying on the program So the atmosphere is different Another plus of the fiscal sponsor situation is that finances are straightforward and transparent In a huge place like Penn which has very complicated accounting procedures involving numerous individuals at various levels in the University it can be very difficult to track income and control outgo in one s accounts We are of course still reliant on Penn Museum for space though down sized and consulting scholar status for myself and collaborating professionals so that we can access the library archives etc But I
