Meet the Staff: Keena Carson

We’re excited to announce the addition of Keena Carson to our Marketing staff! Keena’s new role as Sales and Marketing Assistant includes creating content for our website and social media outlets. She will also work with FNG regional sales representatives throughout the country to coordinate logistics and marketing for upcoming conferences and other company events.

Keena brings with her several years of writing and marketing experience.. “I want to learn more about the insurance industry so that I can help to better serve FNG’s members. With my skills in marketing communication, I hope to create new and innovative ways to better engage with members of nonprofit, governmental and Tribal enterprise communities on social media and ensure that all of their questions and concerns are answered,” she says.

A child of a military family, Keena was born in Shreveport, Louisiana, but spent her youth in different international communities. She has lived in several cities in both the United States and in Europe but now calls Chicago home. She moved from Newport News, Virginia to Chicago in 2012 to attend Columbia College Chicago where she studied Marketing Communication.

Keena is no stranger to the nonprofit world. She currently serves on the Board of Directors at M.U.R.A.L., Magnifying Urban Realities & Affecting Lives, a nonprofit organization founded by Chicago recording artist Lupe Fiasco that focuses on food, justice and youth empowerment. Outside of the office, Keena enjoys going to the theatre to catch the latest Broadway play and is an avid fan of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Some of Keena’s favorite places to visit in the Windy City include Soho House, The DuSable African American History Museum, The Museum of Contemporary Art and the Black Ensemble Theatre.

Join us in welcoming Keena Carson to the First Nonprofit Group’s excellent professional staff.

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.
