For more than 130 years the Washburn Center for Children has worked to help children with social, emotional and behavioral problems, and their families, lead successful lives. The leading children’s mental health center in Minnesota, the Washburn Center ensures caregivers have the best resource to help kids who are hurting on the inside.
As a nonprofit, the Washburn Center serves children from birth to age 18 and helped nearly 2,700 children and 8,000 family members last year, with more than half of those helped coming from families with low incomes.
Like so many nonprofits, this means that Washburn must be highly cognizant of each and every budget line item, which is why they have worked with UST to lower the cost of unemployment at their organization since the 1990′s.
“Unemployment is a very small part of your day-to-day budget, but it’s still something you should be looking at, and UST is committed to working with you to really reduce that so you can put those unrestricted funds into other, more important, areas.”
Over the years working with UST has saved Washburn hundreds of thousands of dollars that have been able to directly impact their community. But their savings aren’t unusual among UST members.
Last year UST’s claims administrator was able to find more than $1,700,000 in overpayments that were returned to our members by states. See how much your nonprofit could save by filling out a Savings Evaluation here today.
