COMBINE 501c4 trade association dues and political committee contribution
COMBINE lobbies the Colorado state legislature to improve conditions and increase diversity, competence, and sustainability for the Medicaid mental healthcare workforce. COMBINE expenses are primarily lobbying contracts and website and other administrative expenses. Financial statements are available. Spending and political contributions are decided by the Board of Directors (501c4 spending) and the Legislative Committee (Small Donor Political Committee spending). Because of federal rules governing 501c4 political spending, contributions to the organization are not deductible for federal income tax purposes as charitable contributions. A proporation of contributions may be considered business expenses, determined by the percentage of COMBINE's political spending annually. Donors will be informed of the percentage annually, in January.
Larger clinics are encouraged to contribute greater than $99 according to their means. Contact COMBINE Treasurer Faith Halverson-Ramos for payment information at email@example.com, or use the donation form.
