First Nonprofit Group to attend RCPA conference in PA

First Nonprofit Group will offer valuable information about its services to members of Pennsylvania's Rehabilitation and Community Provider's Association at the organization's annual conference in early October. The conference, scheduled to begin Tuesday, October 7 and run through Friday, October 10, will take place at the Seven Springs Mountain Resort in Champion, Pennsylvania. Members of the RCPA will be able to interact with a wide variety of vendors that have products and services to aid nonprofits, engage in dialog with fellow groups, attend talks and workshops, and work toward the conference theme: "Together… One."

The RCPA's goal for this year's conference is to create a heightened sense of community amongst the health and human services organizations that make up its membership. A focus on changing state laws and what those new regulations mean for members will be provided. Additionally, workshops and meeting sessions focused on cultivating and maintaining passion in the field, as well as working toward positive change, will also be a priority. The 55 different workshops will provide useful learning and networking experiences for organizations of all types and sizes.

First Nonprofit Group will be on hand to demonstrate how nonprofit organizations can save money and handle their fiscal responsibilities by becoming reimbursing employers. Following this strategy, organizations stop paying into state unemployment tax (SUTA) pools and compensate any jobless claims on a dollar-for-dollar basis – a decision that often leads to reduced financial obligations for nonprofits. With the savings and insurance plans offered by First Nonprofit Group, organizations can make sure they have the funds on hand to compensate legitimate unemployment claims while also freeing up money to be used in other areas of operations.

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!

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!
