Please join us in welcoming Jaepil Choi to the First Nonprofit Group team!

Jaepil comes to us as an accounting major attending Saint Xavier University in Chicago. As Operations Assistant, Jaepil will be working closely with Kim Dass, Jenna Marvin and our underwriting team. He will be responsible for the processing of accounts receivable, accounts payable, and wage reports. Jaepil is expected to receive his Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting this upcoming July.

Before joining us, Jaepil managed the day to day operations of his family’s restaurant. When asked what he enjoys most about working at First Nonprofit, Jaepil says, “My favorite thing about the position and First Nonprofit is its very purpose of helping other organizations save money so they can better pursue their mission. I admire the effective way the company helps them and the niche market FNG serves.”

A native of South Korea, Jaepil is relatively new to the Chicagoland area. “I was born in South Korea and spent half my life there and half in Michigan. I am proficient in Korean and love to find its cultures in America.” His hobbies include Ultimate Frisbee, soccer, board games, and volunteerism and shares his home with three dogs: Sophie, Bella, and Gabby. “I have volunteered at Food Gatherers in Michigan and Ladder-up. I am a nerd at heart that loves to play board games and read.”

Testimonials

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.

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.
