Isadora Richter hit the ground running at First Nonprofit by starting in October of 2014, our busiest time of the year. As the new Underwriting Assistant, Isadora primarily worked renewing contracts for First Nonprofit’s Bonded Service Program members. Her detailed and focused work habits were essential to assisting FNG’s Unemployment Insurance Department prepare comprehensive quotes by scrutinizing all the compulsory data that makes its programs successful.
While Isadora is enjoying her new position and making a huge contribution to the FNG Team, the insurance industry is not her first employment. She earned an English degree from the University of Pittsburgh, and formerly worked as a copywriter and proposal writer. While writing is currently not part of her concentrated daily work, Isadora continues to keep her writing hobby alive by writing fictional short stories and she’s even completed a novella!
The great ability to save nonprofit organizations money which can be directly applied to their nonprofit’s mission was one pleasant revelation that attracted Isadora to her employment with FNG. Once employed she discovered working with the talented, dedicated FNG staff was a joy. “I’ve never worked with such a tight-knit group of people,” she said, “it feels like such a great team!”
Isadora has had an opportunity to live in a variety of different states: New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee, and loves to explore. But, for the last five years Illinois has been home and she loves the Windy City because of the many new places she’s discovered and with much more to see. When not out and about exploring the city, Isadora is either in the kitchen baking gourmet goodies – cookies and cupcakes are a specialty – or exploring fiction by creating stories via the written word.
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.

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.
