Yesenia joins First Nonprofit Group as an Underwriting Assistant. Her main responsibility is to provide support and assistance to our Underwriters by preparing quote documents and enrollment packets for new members as well as assisting with the renewal process for current members. She will be an immediate asset to us because she is naturally curious, excited about the prospect of learning new things and appreciates the value in working with organizations that serves others’ needs. Yesenia comes to us from the Magnum Insurance Agency, where she performed similar work as a Customer Sales Representative. She attended Dominican University in River Forest, IL where she studied Psychology, Social Justice and Civic Engagement.
Yesenia is a Chicago native who enjoys volunteering and giving back to her community. “I grew up in the Heart of Chicago, a small community better known as the colorful Pilsen neighborhood. When I was at Dominican University, I was involved with community-based learning, which included volunteering for and being engaged in the community.” Some of Yesenia’s other hobbies include spending time with her family, playing UNO, watching her favorite television shows, or visiting any one of the many cultural institutions that Chicago has to offer.
We are excited to have Yesenia as an enthusiastic new team member of the First Nonprofit Group team.
Working with Marshal Whittey at First Nonprofit has been a great experience. He handles our request as a priority and goes above and beyond to resolve any issues we have in a timely manner. Marshall follows through to the end and ensures our needs are met. He has been a great resource for LSC and our “go to” for any tax questions we may have. With LSC transitioning several facilities into one federal tax identification number, First Nonprofit was able to assist and provide guidance with best practices resolving claims to each entity. Additionally First Nonprofit provided knowledge (information materials) and one on one training to HRS group with best practices to handle claims state adjudicated, fraudulent claims, and appeals. And processing information in the First Nonprofit [unemployment claims] system allows for timely information can be collected.
My experience with FNP has been wonderful. Unemployment in general is quite confusing and FNP has simplified the process for us. Everyone we have reached out to or worked with has been very helpful and follows up to be sure we understand the information. I am so happy we made the switch to FNP!
First Nonprofit smoothed the unemployment perils for our organization during Covid. Without the ability to cap our UI exposure, we would not have been able to weather the storm. The program worked perfectly and we have come out of the pandemic ready to forge on. Thanks FNP!
My experience with the FNP has been fantastic. The idea of setting funds aside for the unemployment tax liability is a bedrock for nonprofit organizations like mine, namely ASHBA; what is even more advantageous is having the FNP as a custodian of those funds. 100% recommended!
I would like to comment on my experience with FNP….to date our District has saved $1,000’s of dollars by being enrolled in the First Nonprofit program. My only regret is that we did not know about this method of paying unemployment tax years ago….as I had figured about five years
ago, had we enrolled 15-20 years ago, we could have saved our small school district upwards of $500,000 in payments to IDES. Also we would have had a pretty hefty sum of money in our Reserve Account. Thankfully I attended a workshop hosted by First Nonprofit back in 2015 which got the ball rolling!
I have worked with the First Non-Profit Team for many years, and I appreciate the quick response and care that Cecilia and the team provides anytime I have questions. While there are other providers that may provide like services, First Nonprofit will always be my first choice! I appreciate you!
First Nonprofit has been easy to work with and makes the administrative process easier and smoother. We enjoy working with you.
Luckily for us, our interactions regarding any issues with staffing has been very minimal! I can say that all other interactions with regards to billing, 941 reporting, etc. have been extremely pleasant, accommodating and easy to work with. Kim Ghanayem is always prompt, professional and friendly. Thank you so much!
