First Nonprofit Group will hit the road in this summer to exhibit our state unemployment tax (SUTA) alternatives. Charitable organizations interested in avoiding the negatives of contributing to SUTA funds and having greater control of money used for paying jobless claims will be able to learn more about our programs.
The first conference we'll visit is the Foster Family-Based Treatment Association's 28th annual conference on foster care, which will be hosted from July 20-23 in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, at Walt Disney World's Coronado Springs Resort. FFTA supports and strengthens agencies focused on providing high-quality care for children who need a stable and positive environment to develop and grow. Since 1988, the organization has worked to define and refine the methods and practices used for treatment foster care, as well as foster community support, and locate resources for fostering groups. The theme of this year's conference, where more than 20 organizations involved in foster care and nonprofit administration will be exhibiting, is "overcoming barriers to permanency and well-being." To learn more about conference workshops, exhibitors and events, visit FFTA's website.
Only a few short weeks after going to southern Florida, First Nonprofit Group will head to Duluth, the biggest city in northern Minnesota, for the annual Minnesota Community Action Partnership conference. MinnCAP's event will be held from August 6-8 at the Duluth Entertainment and Conference Center and feature sessions on a wide variety of nonprofit topics. These range from next-generation governance to applying weatherization to healthy homes programs. The overall theme of the conference will celebrate the 50-year anniversary of the signing of the Economic Opportunity Act, a major event in the ongoing War on Poverty. To learn more about the event, visit MinnCAP's website.

Working with Marshal Whittey at First Nonprofit has been a great experience. He handles our request as a priority and goes above and beyond to resolve any issues we have in a timely manner. Marshall follows through to the end and ensures our needs are met. He has been a great resource for LSC and our “go to” for any tax questions we may have. With LSC transitioning several facilities into one federal tax identification number, First Nonprofit was able to assist and provide guidance with best practices resolving claims to each entity. Additionally First Nonprofit provided knowledge (information materials) and one on one training to HRS group with best practices to handle claims state adjudicated, fraudulent claims, and appeals. And processing information in the First Nonprofit [unemployment claims] system allows for timely information can be collected.
My experience with FNP has been wonderful. Unemployment in general is quite confusing and FNP has simplified the process for us. Everyone we have reached out to or worked with has been very helpful and follows up to be sure we understand the information. I am so happy we made the switch to FNP!
First Nonprofit smoothed the unemployment perils for our organization during Covid. Without the ability to cap our UI exposure, we would not have been able to weather the storm. The program worked perfectly and we have come out of the pandemic ready to forge on. Thanks FNP!
My experience with the FNP has been fantastic. The idea of setting funds aside for the unemployment tax liability is a bedrock for nonprofit organizations like mine, namely ASHBA; what is even more advantageous is having the FNP as a custodian of those funds. 100% recommended!
I would like to comment on my experience with FNP….to date our District has saved $1,000’s of dollars by being enrolled in the First Nonprofit program. My only regret is that we did not know about this method of paying unemployment tax years ago….as I had figured about five years
ago, had we enrolled 15-20 years ago, we could have saved our small school district upwards of $500,000 in payments to IDES. Also we would have had a pretty hefty sum of money in our Reserve Account. Thankfully I attended a workshop hosted by First Nonprofit back in 2015 which got the ball rolling!
I have worked with the First Non-Profit Team for many years, and I appreciate the quick response and care that Cecilia and the team provides anytime I have questions. While there are other providers that may provide like services, First Nonprofit will always be my first choice! I appreciate you!
First Nonprofit has been easy to work with and makes the administrative process easier and smoother. We enjoy working with you.
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!
