First Nonprofit to attend NDANO leadership conference in May

Nonprofits in North Dakota will have the chance to take advantage of the state's premier education and networking event at the end of May. The North Dakota Association of Nonprofit Organizations (NDANO) is holding a leadership conference in Bismarck on May 28 and 29. Nonprofits of all sizes are invited to attend.

Registration for the event is already underway and rates will increase by $50 after May 12. The conference will feature keynote speeches and presentations by leadership and management experts in the nonprofit sector. A number of helpful breakout sessions will also take place, aimed at improving human resource management, maximizing fundraising, utilizing CRM software and much more.

First Nonprofit can help North Dakota nonprofits save on UI costs
First Nonprofit Group will be attending the NDANO conference and is excited to help nonprofits in North Dakota better manage their unemployment insurance costs. Nonprofits around the country can save money on state UI costs by becoming reimbursing employers. As a reimbursing employer, a nonprofit is only responsible for its actual UI claims paid out to former employees and is not required to pay the unpredictable state tax for unemployment.

However, reimbursing requires protection in the event of a sudden unemployment increase and the knowledge to make sure claims are paid correctly and in a timely manner. It can be difficult for a nonprofit to manage UI claims on their own, so First Nonprofit Group can guide them in becoming a reimbursing employer and help them along the way. Savings for nonprofits that make the election have averaged $41,473 for new First Nonprofit members in 2014.

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!
