First NonprofitPANO Benefits

PANO has partnered with First Nonprofit since 1998, helping 300 Pennsylvania nonprofits save over $28 million dollars! Last year nonprofits save an average of 36%. First Nonprofit offers PANO members two unemployment savings programs to help save you money on your State Unemployment Insurance (SUI) costs. Instead of paying the SUI tax, 501(c)(3) organizations can enroll into one of First Nonprofit’s programs and elect to reimburse the state for validated claims paid to former employees, dollar for dollar (save as much as 60%). PANO members receive a 20% discount on the one-time enrollment fee. Services include: unemployment claims administration, training opportunities on employer responsibilities and risk mitigation and a free cost-savings evaluation.

If your organization is a 501(c)(3) with at least 10 employees, one of these programs may save you money. To find out how much your agency can save each year, fill out this free evaluation application from First Nonprofit and email it back to

Did you know? In late 2022, First Nonprofit also teamed up with PANO to help our members determine eligibility for the Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC) and, if so, provide a reputable, vetted, and affordable service to assist in filing.
