Please join us in welcoming Katie Simmons, to the First Nonprofit Group team!

As our most recently appointed Regional Sales Director for the Northeast Region, Katie’s new responsibilities include sustaining current client, agent, and partner relationships, plus expanding our services to new customers in Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, and Vermont, Maine, and New Hampshire.

Katie earned a B.A in English from Central Connecticut State University and comes to First Nonprofit Group with 15 years of experience effectively supporting insurance providers in customer service, claims, and marketing. She has solid familiarity working with the AmTrust network and other insurance agents/brokers in an effort to strengthen their ability to successfully serve a variety of business and nonprofit customers. Her understanding of the needs and trends in the marketplace is a consequence of years actively interacting with a variety of customers and potential customers. Her commitment to achievement is reflected in her years as an effective manager of a sales team dedicated to bringing the highest benefit to their customers.

Best of all, Katie’s enthusiasm to positively serve and improve nonprofit organizations is fully evident in her own energetic life. “I’ve been heavily involved with Marc Community Resources, a local nonprofit in CT that provides services for children and adults with disabilities. We just had our annual wine tasting fundraiser in June and were fortunate enough to raise more money than ever.”

Katie is also a mother of two very active children, Hunter (16) and Cody (9), plus a Jack Russell/Basset Hound mix named Chug. When “spare time” comes available she loves to golf, read, swim, camp, hike, kayak, travel, and is an avid Patriots fan. She aspires to be the best Mom, the best advocate for First Nonprofit Group, and to make a positive impact for the nonprofit community!

Do you know a nonprofit, governmental or tribal entity that could benefit from Katie’s expertise and enthusiasm in addition to First Nonprofit Group’s successful unemployment programs in the Northeast Region? Reach out to Katie directly at KSimmons@firstnonprofit.com or by phone at 860-571-3189.

Thresholds, Chicago, IL

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.

Illinois Network of Charter Schools

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.
