Flexible Spending Accounts

  • What is a Flexible Spending Account and how can it help my nonprofit? In Summary, an FSA is: A way to save money on day care and health care services as well as over-the-counter items for you and your family. An FSA is basically an account where you contribute money deducted from your salary, before taxes are withheld, incur eligible expenses and get reimbursed. This means your nonprofit pays less in payroll taxes and your employees save as well.Resources:  More About Flexible Spending Accounts These document will explain the basics of FSAs, as well as the specifics of the two programs we offer to nonprofits and the benefits to employers and employees.
