Meet the Staff: Jenna Marvin

Jenna Marvin was born and raised in the Chicago area, growing up in the south suburbs and attending college at St. Xavier University in the city.  Jenna graduated in May 2014 with a degree in Mathematics and a minor in Business Administration.  She quickly found her way to First Nonprofit in July 2014, just two months after completing her degree.  Word-of-mouth served Jenna well during her job search, as she heard about the opening here at First Nonprofit Group (FNG) through Accounts Payable Clerk Dawn Brouwer, another St. Xavier graduate.

At First Nonprofit, Jenna’s role as Accounting Analyst entails paying monthly unemployment benefit charges for all 300 of First Nonprofit Bonded Service Program and Unemployment Savings Program members in Pennsylvania.  She also collects and processes their quarterly wage reports for our systems.  Jenna plays an integral role in assuring that both of First Nonprofit’s unemployment insurance programs are running smoothly, which helps FNG’s nonprofit clients save money on their state unemployment cost.

We asked Jenna to share a frequently asked question she receives from members and her response:

Why is FNG requesting copies of our wage reports?

“First Nonprofit requires copies of your quarterly wage reports in order to calculate your program fees. We do not need the whole report, just the summary page with the quarterly gross wages figure. You can remit your wage report by e-mail at or by fax at 312-648-0325. Also, we send out a reminder to submit your wage report each quarter along with the invoices.”

In addition to assisting nonprofits across the country, Jenna realizes that the First Nonprofit staff is what truly makes the organization unique.  “The people here are absolutely wonderful,” she said, “This is a great first job where I learn new, valuable skills every day.”

Outside of the office, Jenna is an avid reader and history buff.  While she is currently on a Dean Koontz suspense kick, Jane Eyre is always at the very top of Jenna’s reading list because she sees a different perspective every time she reads it.  The Field Museum is also a classic spot that Jenna loves to visit, as learning about history engages and excites her.  Jenna loves that Chicago has so many opportunities and plans to continue exploring everything the Windy City has to offer.

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.

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!
