FES Launches Filament Essential Services to Support Local Nonprofits and Community Organizations


Lincoln’s Foundation for Educational Services recently announced a new branch to the FES family alongside NSLP/Inceptia and the EducationQuest Foundation. 

Filament Essential Services is poised to provide a foundation of essential services that strengthens the nonprofit community and enables them to stay focused on fulfilling their mission, including website and app support, branding and video, data security, tech support, and payroll management.

“FES has a long history of serving the nonprofit community,” FES President and CEO C.J. Thoma said. “It’s our staff members’ dedication to mission and service that makes the difference in the services we provide. We look forward to Filament Essential Services continuing that same tradition.” 

FES has more than a 30-year history in Lincoln of serving its affiliates as well as K-12 schools, municipalities, and other nonprofit organizations across the country. Sixty-nine employees make up the nonprofit.

“The team at Filament Essential Services is truly dedicated to the mission of each and every partner with whom we work,” Senior VP of Nonprofit Services Dan Kunzman said. “We are a nonprofit serving nonprofits. That in itself sets Filament apart from others. We get it.”
