The Texas Association for Community Action Agencies (TACAA) is preparing for its 2014 conference in Corpus Christi, Texas, and the event is a great chance for community action agencies to learn more about improving management and leadership. The conference will be held May 7-9 at the Omni Corpus Christi Hotel. Early-bird registration is open now through April 15 and onsite registration continues through May 6.
The event will feature exhibits, prize drawings and a number of different workshops over the three-day period. First Nonprofit Group will be onsite to help community action agencies' attendees learn about cost-saving alternatives for satisfying their state unemployment insurance (UI) obligation. By opting out of state UI tax pools, community action agencies (and other 501c3 nonprofits) can save thousands of dollars on their UI costs each year. This year, new members in First Nonprofit Group's programs saved an average of $41,473!
Opting out takes assistance
Nonprofits have the ability to opt out of state UI tax pools and become reimbursing employers. Under this election, they owe only what is actually paid out by state unemployment agencies for claims filed by former employees. However, reimbursing can be risky without a membership in an unemployment program to protect the organization. Consulting an expert that understands individual state tax and UI laws, nonprofit budget constraints, and managing the risk of individual state tax and UI laws can help a nonprofit save money on its unemployment obligation while minimizing that risk.
Organizations that attend the TACAA conference can learn more about this cost-saving opportunity by visiting First Nonprofit's booth or contacting First Nonprofit Group directly.
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.
