Idaho Humane Society staff and their extensive community of volunteers have advocated for the welfare and responsible care of animals for decades. The original Idaho Humane Society dates back as far as the 1890s but since its formal incorporation in 1945, the Idaho Humane Society has been a vital in the passing of local laws including cruelty and dog at large ordinances. Today, its shelter handles more than 12,000 animals per year and runs successful adoption and fostering programs.
Summer, Spring and mini camps are offered to the youth in their community to teach younger generations about humane care for pets and safety around animals. Their Inmate Dog Alliance Project of Idaho (IDAPI) community partnership with the Idaho Department of Correction pairs shelter dogs with inmates who care for the dogs, live with the dogs and train them to teach responsibility, tolerance, empathy and how it feels to make a difference by giving something back to their community. And the new Women Inmate Social Kitty Retreat (WISKR) foster program sends sick cats and young kittens into a correctional facility for around-the-clock care by inmates. The Idaho Humane Society also provides pet food and discounted medical services to families or individuals struggling financially so they don’t have to give up their animals due to hardship. These are just a few of the many ways the Idaho Humane Society makes an impact on their community.

In 2008, we estimated that the Idaho Humane Society would save about $3,500 in the first two years in the First Nonprofit Unemployment Savings Program. They wound up saving almost $40,000! Since 2009, the Idaho Humane Society has saved a total of $116,704 by opting out of paying State Unemployment Taxes.
We look forward to reducing, managing and safeguarding Idaho Humane Society’s budget from uncertain unemployment insurance expenses for many more years so that they can redirect their savings into achieving their goal of creating a humane society.
Throughout our membership in the Unemployment Savings Program, First Nonprofit understood our demands, community dynamics, and the importance of seamless services; that allowed us to serve our constituents better.
Because INCS advocates for the operating conditions that allow charter public schools to provide high quality public education, partnering with First Nonprofit was an easy decision. First Nonprofit’s unemployment programs provide our member schools two operating elements crucial to their ability to provide high quality public education: savings and budget certainty. Capable, committed teachers are the key to student success. By participating in the unemployment insurance savings plan, charter public schools gain peace of mind and are able to invest more money in their teachers.
It has been our sincere pleasure to maintain a strong, vibrant business partnership with First Nonprofit. We greatly admire their strong industry knowledge, technical expertise, constant professionalism, knowledgeable and dedicated staff. They are always extremely responsive, personable and provide us with the necessary guidance and recommendations on a numerous variety of employment scenarios.
NYCON members who use First Nonprofit’s programs enjoy enduring savings and improved efficiency. Our association knows that success, because from the beginning, we achieved the same great benefits. Great savings, seamless technology, and responsive service. NYCON highly recommends First Nonprofit’s remarkable unemployment solutions.
Visually Impaired Preschool Services has been a client of First Non-Profit since it was first offered as a benefit of VisionServe Alliance. We completed a thorough evaluation of cash savings to our agency before taking advantage of this wonderful benefit and it has been a very wise decision. Our experience with the processes from accounting to claims have been professional, expeditious and easy.
Luckily for us, our interactions regarding any issues with staffing has been very minimal! I can say that all other interactions with regards to billing, 941 reporting, etc. have been extremely pleasant, accommodating and easy to work with. Kim Ghanayem is always prompt, professional and friendly. Thank you so much!
First Nonprofit has been easy to work with and makes the administrative process easier and smoother. We enjoy working with you.
The Ensight Skills Center has enjoyed working with First Nonprofit for several years. We are enrolled in their Unemployment Savings Program and although we have not required a lot of intervention, there have been a few times. I know others have dealt with the same problem of unemployment fraud over the last year and in our case, a call to First Nonprofit (they actually answer their phones) cleared up the issue. They also sent us a letter to send to all our employees telling them what they needed to do to prevent this in the future and protect themselves. What a relief! Over the years if I have questions or concerns, they are happy to listen, advise and help if they can. Another BIG advantage of using First Nonprofit is that all the money that is paid into the Unemployment Savings Program lives on my balance sheet as an asset. The money continues to be Ensight’s not the governments. First Nonprofit has certainly given me peace of mind.
