First Nonprofit is pleased to disclose the new addition of Edgardo Jimenez to our professional services team! Edgardo will be working as an Administration & Service Clerk where he will be collecting, defining and dispensing critical data, distributing important mailings and accumulating, organizing and memorializing the multiple documents FNG must track for compliance. He previously worked for the City of Chicago in the City Clerk Office, the Finance Department and in Procurement Services where he honed his skills for the many duties he now has at FNG.
Edgardo graduated from both David Farragut High School and from the National Latino Education Institute for Phlebotomy. Since joining FNG in May, Ed says; “Every day I learn something new at First Nonprofit! My co-workers have created a very positive work environment which allows me to feel like an important part of a really good team.”
Edgardo is a native of Mexico City, Mexico and has lived in Chicago since he was 9 years old. He enjoys visiting Chicago’s beautiful beaches, going to the gym, playing soccer and watching short films. Ed is also a pet lover! “I have 10 Fischer Lovebirds. They are beautiful. My mom goes crazy because they make a lot of noise.”
In addition to their money-saving purpose on behalf of nonprofit organizations like AHS, First Nonprofit’s Nonprofit Unemployment Fund streamlines the information we need to efficiently manage unemployment claims. Our relationship with NU Fund gave us access to such things as advice on planning for what’s ahead and how to analyze cost scenarios when unexpected events occurred. Both experiences were very helpful.
The Ensight Skills Center has enjoyed working with First Nonprofit for several years. We are enrolled in their Unemployment Savings Program and although we have not required a lot of intervention, there have been a few times. I know others have dealt with the same problem of unemployment fraud over the last year and in our case, a call to First Nonprofit (they actually answer their phones) cleared up the issue. They also sent us a letter to send to all our employees telling them what they needed to do to prevent this in the future and protect themselves. What a relief! Over the years if I have questions or concerns, they are happy to listen, advise and help if they can. Another BIG advantage of using First Nonprofit is that all the money that is paid into the Unemployment Savings Program lives on my balance sheet as an asset. The money continues to be Ensight’s not the governments. First Nonprofit has certainly given me peace of mind.
Visually Impaired Preschool Services has been a client of First Non-Profit since it was first offered as a benefit of VisionServe Alliance. We completed a thorough evaluation of cash savings to our agency before taking advantage of this wonderful benefit and it has been a very wise decision. Our experience with the processes from accounting to claims have been professional, expeditious and easy.

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.
