If your nonprofit organization is paying the state unemployment tax (SUTA), you are most likely overpaying for unemployment insurance. 501(c)3 nonprofits and governmental employers joining our programs choose to be financially liable for only their own unemployment claims (called “reimbursing”)* and not pay via the tax method. By making the switch, our new 2014 members saved an average of $41,473!
Nonprofit organizations change over time, as do their needs. First Nonprofit offers four program options: Bonded Service Program,Unemployment Savings Program, Excess Loss Insurance,and Surety Bonds. All of our alternatives to the tax method maximize savings and eliminate the challenges of reimbursing.
All of our programs are insured by AmTrust Financial Services, Inc., rated “A” (Excellent)by A.M. Best., a credit rating organization dedicated to serving the insurance industry.
As a member, you will have day-to-day assistance provided by professionals in unemployment issues and agency procedures specific to your state. Our experts save you valuable staff time and money by providing technical services,claims processing, and audit/report services.
All fees are based exclusively on your own unemployment experience and employment profile. There are no pooled losses or shared expenses found in State Tax or Trust programs.
Employers paying the state unemployment tax make most of their payments into the tax system during the first and second quarters. First Nonprofit program members make four fixed equal payments over the course of the year.
To ensure a seamless transition into our programs, our staff will process all necessary paperwork to setup your reimbursing account at your state unemployment agency, including posting any required collateral.
Our programs are available nationwide and are endorsed and recognized by 29 national and state nonprofit associations. More than 1,600 nonprofit organizations across the country, representing all sectors of the nonprofit community, rely on us.

The national average unemployment tax cost per employee has increased by 79% since 2009! While some states have begun to rebuild their unemployment trust funds that were depleted during the recession, some states are still not collecting enough money in unemployment taxes even with the 79% cost increase.
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.
First Nonprofit has been a great partner. They have helped us saved hundreds of thousands of dollars! They have awesome resources for our nonprofit organization. Thanks for the partnership.
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.
First Nonprofit gets an A+ in my book. You are so easy to work with & very knowledgeable! Whether it is my quarterly correspondence with Kim or my random interactions with Dawn about a bond … I am so pleased that I get to work with such a helpful company. Thank you!
