First Nonprofit to attend NDANO leadership conference in May

Nonprofits in North Dakota will have the chance to take advantage of the state's premier education and networking event at the end of May. The North Dakota Association of Nonprofit Organizations (NDANO) is holding a leadership conference in Bismarck on May 28 and 29. Nonprofits of all sizes are invited to attend.

Registration for the event is already underway and rates will increase by $50 after May 12. The conference will feature keynote speeches and presentations by leadership and management experts in the nonprofit sector. A number of helpful breakout sessions will also take place, aimed at improving human resource management, maximizing fundraising, utilizing CRM software and much more.

First Nonprofit can help North Dakota nonprofits save on UI costs
First Nonprofit Group will be attending the NDANO conference and is excited to help nonprofits in North Dakota better manage their unemployment insurance costs. Nonprofits around the country can save money on state UI costs by becoming reimbursing employers. As a reimbursing employer, a nonprofit is only responsible for its actual UI claims paid out to former employees and is not required to pay the unpredictable state tax for unemployment.

However, reimbursing requires protection in the event of a sudden unemployment increase and the knowledge to make sure claims are paid correctly and in a timely manner. It can be difficult for a nonprofit to manage UI claims on their own, so First Nonprofit Group can guide them in becoming a reimbursing employer and help them along the way. Savings for nonprofits that make the election have averaged $41,473 for new First Nonprofit members in 2014.

We first started using First Nonprofit’s Unemployment Savings Program when we were a small startup nonprofit.  We didn’t have an HR department and needed expertise in the event that an unemployment claim was made.  We knew we were eligible to be a reimbursing employer, but weren’t sure how to navigate that process.  They made it easy to set things up, plan for, and then manage claims when they came at a very reasonable cost. The amount of time and stress they’ve saved us dealing with all this has been worth way more than the cost.  We’ve now grown to a large nonprofit and do have an HR department but have no plans to stop using their services.  I highly recommend them to every nonprofit I come into contact with!


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.

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.
