First Nonprofit Announces Endorsement by Community Action Partnership


Community Action Agencies to Benefit from First Nonprofit’s Cost-Effective Insurance Solutions

CHICAGO, Ill., March 19, 2019 – First Nonprofit (FNP), a leading provider of insurance programs to nonprofit and government entities, today announced the endorsement of FNP’s unemployment insurance programs by Community Action Partnership (CAP), a national non-profit membership organization that provides technical assistance, training, and other resources to Community Action Agencies (CAA).

FNP will provide CAP and its employer network with state-compliant, individually insured, cost-saving options to satisfy State Unemployment Insurance (SUI) tax requirements. By participating in FNP’s insurance programs, CAAs will benefit from enduring savings and improved efficiencies to better serve constituents and further their missions.

Denise Harlow, Chief Executive Officer of the National Community Action Partnership, said, “As the hub for over a thousand of the nation’s local Community Action Agencies, we are always looking for opportunities to connect local agencies to products and solutions that generate savings on the operational side of the business, so they are able to invest more money in their missions. First Nonprofit is the ideal partner, having already worked with many of our members to implement savings options. We look forward to working together to strengthen the positive social impact of our member agencies.”

FNP currently serves more than 50 CAAs across the country. Over the past two years, FNP has helped CAA customers generate significant savings on more than $400,000 on SUI taxes in their first year alone.

About FNP: More than 2,000 organizations with over half a million employees nationwide rely on FNP for state-compliant, individually insured, cost-saving options that satisfy SUI requirements for 501(c)3 nonprofit, government and tribal entities. FNP operates within The Amynta Group, an industry leading group of warranty, managing general agent and specialty risk companies.

About CAP: Community Action Partnership is a national, 501(c)3 nonprofit membership organization that provides technical assistance, training, and other resources to CAAs, nonprofit and public groups funded by the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG), a federal program that allocates funding to states to connect Americans to greater opportunity.

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.

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.

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.
