First Nonprofit Group (FNG) is excited to be a supporting sponsor at the Milwaukee Independent Charter School Awards this Thursday! The event will take place at the Potawatomi Hotel in Milwaukee from 6 – 9 pm. First Nonprofit’s own Vice President of Member Services, Cecilia Piazza, and Business Developer, Elizabeth Medina, will be on site to answer any questions members of the Milwaukee charter school community may have about our services.
The Awards were created by the Milwaukee Charter School Advocates to honor high-performing teachers and high-achieving independent charter schools. Categories of awards include: Elementary School Teacher of the Year, High School Teacher of the Year, School of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, and Advocate of the Year.

Over 1,700 nonprofits across the country, including several charter schools, rely on FNG to manage their unemployment insurance needs. New 2015 charter school members saved an average of $12,087, or 22%, on their state unemployment tax (SUTA) by enrolling into our unemployment programs. In 2013, the Illinois Network of Charter Schools (INCS) partnered with us to provide unemployment solutions for their members:

NYCON members who use First Nonprofit’s programs enjoy enduring savings and improved efficiency. Our association knows that success, because from the beginning, we achieved the same great benefits. Great savings, seamless technology, and responsive service. NYCON highly recommends First Nonprofit’s remarkable unemployment solutions.
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.
