New Proposals Make Tax Time for Small Businesses Easier, Spur Growth and Expansion
Senators Mike Brubaker, Scott Hutchinson, Mike Folmer, and Representatives Stephen Bloom, George Dunbar and Seth Grove announced a package of bills last month they say would make it easier for Pennsylvania small businesses to file their taxes next year. The bills will make the Pennsylvania tax code more in line with the federal code and the majority of other states. This, they say, would allow small businesses to save money and spend more time growing their businesses.
Events:The Future Fund Quarterly Event
As part of The Future Fund's quarterly event series, members Bryan and Mindy Rishforth held an event at their home in Bryn Mawr. The Pennsylvania Future Fund's Board of Directors hosted the June 7th event to honor Lt. Governor Jim Cawley; Craig Snider also had the pleasure of co-hosting the evening on the Rishforth's grounds. It proved to be a beautiful early-spring night as the rain held off to provide the perfect backdrop for the cocktail party on the lawn. The event was held to honor of Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley on June 7th. The Pennsylvania Future Fund's Board of Directors hosted the evening's affairs. "It was a memorable evening due to the Future Fund," says member Elizabeth Preate Havey. "I had the opportunity to catch with fellow members, meet new members and exchange ideas surrounding our common interests. I thoroughly enjoyed my fun, relaxed evening."

The Pennsylvania Future Fund is a pro-growth State Political Action Committee, whose members are dedicated to improving Pennsylvania as a place to live, work and do business. The Future Fund encourages and supports the election of candidates who share its members' vision for Pennsylvania's future - a future in which Pennsylvania's business and commerce will continue to grow stronger. The results are policies and legislation that ensures the state's growth and a membership that is continuously enhanced through its shared ideals.
Support for the future
First time candidates and elected officials have relied on the support of the Pennsylvania Future Fund for many years. This support goes well beyond political contributions. It ranges from financial donations, and the purchasing of promotional materials to providing staff assistance and district polling. But none of this would be possible without the dedication and financial support the Pennsylvania Future Fund receives from its members.
Strength by membership
The PA Future Fund features like-minded individuals that are committed to maintaining Pennsylvania as an economic hub. We regularly host events where business owners, legislative power players and other decision-makers share current best practices and visions for tomorrow. The Future Fund has hundreds of members that span our Commonwealth and the strength of our organization comes from individuals just like you.
The value of the PA Future Fund is in its members. The Membership Directory will be viewable shortly.
We believe in making Pennsylvania a better place! We believe in Pennsylvania business!
