Multi Community Diversified Services (MCDS) enrolled with First Nonprofit in 2007. During the first year, alone, they saved more than $20,000 over paying state unemployment taxes (SUTA). Since then, they have successfully utilized two of First Nonprofit Group’s specialized unemployment risk management solutions for additional savings.
Located in McPherson, Kansas, MCDS first began serving people with disabilities in 1972. Initially providing only a half day preschool program for six students, today MCDS provides a wide range of services, including residential services, case management, transportation, an intermediate care facility, and children services touching hundreds of families. MCDS host a number of annual events such as their Poker Run and Teams for Dreams Softball Tournament that support their mission of promoting community inclusion and employment opportunities for people with disabilities.
Through its McPherson Industries programs, MCDS also introduces persons with disabilities to rewarding, enriching and satisfying work experiences. This industrial facility with fork lift, loading docks and short term warehousing, provides a work force for all packaging, production and shipping needs.
We look forward to continued success with MCDS! For more information about their services, visit their website: www.mcds-ks.org.
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. 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.
