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.

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.
NYCON members who use First Nonprofit’s programs enjoy enduring savings and improved efficiency. Our association knows that success, because from the beginning, we achieved the same great benefits. Great savings, seamless technology, and responsive service. NYCON highly recommends First Nonprofit’s remarkable unemployment solutions.
It has been our sincere pleasure to maintain a strong, vibrant business partnership with First Nonprofit. We greatly admire their strong industry knowledge, technical expertise, constant professionalism, knowledgeable and dedicated staff. They are always extremely responsive, personable and provide us with the necessary guidance and recommendations on a numerous variety of employment scenarios. We are impressed with the accuracy of their employment decisions, integrity of their employees and efficiency of their claim handling. We greatly respect and value the consistent, impressive cost savings from the utilization of their outstanding services.
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.
