A Look at First Nonprofit Group: Then and Now

Since our inception in 1995 First Nonprofit Group (FNG) improved our financial strength, responded to shifting compliance issues and changing economies, and modified our service capacity to deliver multiple, value-added options for satisfying state unemployment responsibilities. And all the while, FNG continues to be the leading provider in the United States of state unemployment insurance solutions to 501c3 nonprofit, tribal and government entities. We began with the Unemployment Savings Program as our sole unemployment solution for nonprofits and quickly grew to offering four superior quality, money-saving options. To date, our Bonded Service Program is the only program in the country that offers comprehensive first and last dollar coverage. Plus, our value added solutions such as discounted background checks and cyber monitoring services, advance compliance and tighten up security.

The results and phenomenal growth are seen in the following infographic.

We were introduced to First Nonprofit through another housing authority. In our analysis and comparison to what we were paying the State, our first year savings was $5,800 plus. We have been with them since the end of 2008 and I am glad we have been. I consider them an arm of our HR department.

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.

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.
