SIGN: Letter to Idaho’s Congressional Delegation

The Idaho Nonprofit Center called for additional support for Idaho’s nonprofits regarding phase four COVID relief bill that will be discussed starting this week:

“As a part of our mission to educate, advocate and collaborate in support of stronger nonprofits, the Idaho Nonprofit Center will be sending letters to Senator Mike Crapo, Senator Jim Risch, Congressman Russ Fulcher and Congressman Mike Simpson with the following information.  

We are collecting support for and from Idaho’s nonprofits on the following topics for the phase four COVID relief bill that will be discussed starting this week:

  1. Expand access to credit (increase eligibility and support a dedicated funding stream for EIDL & PPP programs)
  2. Bolster charitable giving incentives (increasing the $300 cap and extending it beyond 2020)
  3. Protecting self-insured nonprofits (providing funding to cover 100% of the cost of these organization’s unemployment claims)
  4. Support nonprofit service providers (increasing emergency funding to all levels of our state)

If you would like to add your name, organization, and location to the letter please read through this letter and enter the information requested at the end. We will close the form on Wednesday, April 22 at 5 pm MT and send the letter by the end of the day.

We also encourage you to share this opportunity with fellow nonprofits in your community to ensure they have an opportunity to join in signing onto our letter.  

The Idaho Nonprofit Center serves as the voice for the sector, but your voice can be added to ours helping us to amplify our message. Nonprofits can and should use this opportunity to advocate on your own behalf.

We are stronger together”

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.

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!

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.
