Nonprofit, Public and Professional Organizations

Nonprofit Fundraising in the Digital Age

The Internet has changed everything from the way we stay connected to the way you can find a mate, and if it hasn’t changed the way you fundraise for your nonprofit, you’re missing out. While sending canvassers to knock on doors, holding carwashes and auctions will always be solid fundraising strategies, the ideas have been around long enough to become “venerable.”

The Four Rules of a Strong Nonprofit Brand

Many nonprofit organizations spend time crafting a mission statement to clarify their place in the world. But it’s important to remember that these elements aren’t meant to be stored away as archived material in your annual report. These core beliefs should be an everyday yardstick for all of your communications.

My Successes

Currently, ASCNYC has more than 90 staff members, 85 peer interns and a budget of nearly $8 million. More than 1,800 clients come to ASCNYC for services each year and 18,000 people are reached through ASCNYC's peer education and community outreach initiatives. ASCNYC was also recognized by SCORE as the 2014 Outstanding Non-Profit Organization.

 

How SCORE Helped

In 2008 the recession presented Sharen with new, unfamiliar challenges. Sharen reached out to SCORE to help her in an area she had not been trained in, finance. Sharen's mentor, Munir Saltoun worked with Sharen and ASCNYC's CFO to create a five year plan to restructure the organization in order to get it back on financial track.

          After working for a large accounting firm for many years, I’ve decided to go out on my
own and specialize in helping small businesses with their accounting and financial needs.
          Initially, it will be just me, and to keep expenses down and be able to better manage my young
son, I’m thinking about operating out of my home. What are the pros and cons?

          For productivity, convenience, and downright comfort, nothing beats a home-based business. Here, most every day is “casual day,” and the only obstacle on your commute is dodging the cat or dog on your way upstairs.
