News of the devastation brought by the arrival of Hurricane Harvey to the Texas coast is terrible. We extend our sincerest thoughts and good wishes to our First Nonprofit Group’s members and all individuals who have been adversely effected and will continue to be. There is so much destruction and the need for help is so overwhelming, it is difficult for those outside of the area to decide when, where and how to best help.
To make matters worse internet scammers are now using the Hurricane Harvey disaster to trick people into clicking on links on Facebook, Twitter and phishing emails trying to solicit illegitimate “charitable” giving for the flood victims.
CyberheistNews Vol 7 #34, (August 28, 2017) article entitled “Scam of the Week: Hurricane Harvey Charity Fraud” cite the following examples
[item]Facebook pages dedicated to victim relief contain links to scam websites.[/item]
[item]Tweets are going out with links to charitable websites soliciting donations, but in reality include links to scam sites or links that lead to a malware infection.[/item][item]Phishing emails dropping in a user’s inbox asking for donations to #HurricaneHarvey Relief Fund[/item]
Previous disasters have been exploited like this, and the bad guys are at it again. Be wary of anything online covering the Hurricane Harvey disaster in the following weeks. If you want to make a donation, go to the website of the charity of your choice and make a donation there. Type the address in your browser or use a bookmark. Do not click on any links in emails or texts you might get. Whatever you see in the coming weeks about Hurricane Harvey disaster relief… PLEASE THINK BEFORE YOU CLICK.
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!
