Utah nonprofits can learn about risk management, cost savings at upcoming conference

Nonprofits in the Beehive State have an exciting opportunity to learn about effective options for managing their unemployment costs at the upcoming Utah Nonprofits Association (UNA) Conference. First Nonprofit Group, a partner of the UNA, will be in attendance as an exhibitor to help visitors learn about the various options they have for reimbursing jobless claims as an alternative to contributing to the state unemployment tax (SUTA) pool. Along with this opportunity, attendees will be able to take part in breakout sessions and speak with a wide array of exhibitors to learn about effective strategies that can be utilized in many different operational areas by nonprofit groups of all sizes and forms.

Under the cohesive theme of "Leading together as forces for good," members of the Utah Nonprofits Association will be able to learn about aspects of operation ranging from financial management, volunteer development, leadership and fundraising. A series of informative sessions in seven different categories run throughout the day, which will be kicked off by a keynote breakfast speech from Leslie Crutchfield, who recently authored nonprofit guidance book "Forces for Good." Crutchfield, who focuses on high-impact philanthropy and scaling social innovation in her work, will also lead two of the breakout sessions.

Prospective attendees have a variety of options for the conference, including full- and half-day registration types. There will be plenty of opportunities to learn about effective nonprofit management and interact with exhibitors and vendors offering information, products and services to help charitable organizations succeed. The conference will take place on Sept. 18 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center in West Valley City. To learn more and to register for the event, follow this link.

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!

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!
