First Nonprofit will attend NHPCO’s 29th Management and Leadership Conference

The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization will be holding its 29th Management and Leadership Conference March 27 – 29 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Md. The conference helps executive leadership and management develop skills and obtain the tools to provide the best end-of-life care.

The conference will feature discussions on changes in the regulations and policies within the health care industry that impact hospice palliative care. Management from all levels of hospice care will have the chance to identify innovative approaches that expand the continuum of care and increase access to services.

Improving operations by saving on UI costs
First Nonprofit Group will be located at booth 122 during the conference to help the leaders of nonprofit hospice organizations save considerably on their unemployment insurance costs by opting out of state unemployment tax (SUTA). While many nonprofit organizations are unaware of this cost-saving opportunity, savings have averaged $41,473 for new 2014 members.

To avoid SUTA costs, nonprofits can elect to become a reimbursing employer, at which point they are financially responsible for their own UI costs. However, the switch requires the guidance of professionals in the unemployment industry who understand annual budgets and funding, plus the procedures specific to each state.

First Nonprofit Group also offers a number of different programs and allows organizations the ability to change their program as their needs evolve. All of our methods for alternatively satisfying SUTA obligations meet rigorous legal/financial standards and maximize savings while eliminating the challenges and risks associated with self-reimbursing.

First Nonprofit has saved us so much money over the state’s program. We had one little glitch with the state recently and we contacted FNP immediately. FNP staff called us back immediately and moved to remedy the problem.

Life is certainly busy these days but having business partners like First Nonprofit has made some of the process hassle free. We have worked with this team for years. When we changed payroll systems, they outlined every step. I think this team is terrific and I know they get the job done! Thank you, Cruz, to all the team at FNP.

FNP has helped our agency to save thousands of dollars every year on our unemployment coverage. The service is phenomenal, and we are thankful to their team as our partner. My experience working with Marshall on the advocacy around UE for nonprofits was also a highlight as someone who teaches advocacy and lobbying for nonprofits. Really, your whole team is top shelf, so thank YOU!

Chicago Children’s Theatre has greatly benefited from our partnership with First Nonprofit, and I have always enjoyed working with the staff on our filings and any complicated questions. I would not hesitate to recommend First Nonprofit to fellow nonprofits. We’re very happy customers.

FNP is a great resource for Daniel Kids. To have a TPA that we can count on to take point on not only managing our unemployment claims, but to support and guide any protest hearing, is invaluable. All the professional support staff we have worked with have been excellent, very knowledgeable and responsive. We are grateful for the help and support, thank you.

When I first began in my position at my organization, I hadn’t had experience working with a company like FNP. The staff was so patient and helpful in helping to explain the benefits of First Nonprofit. Anytime I reach out with a question I receive a quick, clear, and thorough response. I’m so thankful that we decided to partner with FNP. Their excellence in customer service, coupled with their variety of packages frees us up to truly serve our staff and community with a peace of mind knowing that our organization is protected against unanticipated unemployment insurance expenses.
