Today we’re joined by Donna Groh, Executive Director of Unemployment Services Trust — a sponsor of Through the Noise. Like many of the guests on our show, Unemployment Services Trust exists to serve nonprofits helps them become more effective organizations. Many — if not most — nonprofits overpay in taxes and UST analyzes nonprofits and provides cost-saving support. They are also expanding their focus to assist nonprofits in retaining employees while also offering a placement assistance programs in the event that someone must be laid off. Ms. Groh mentioned that 65% of their members don’t pay annual admin costs for the programs because the interest from their savings account covers it. Listen up to find out how you can save your organization money and better prepare for the future.
