Resources for Social Change

A Note from the Editor…

Compiling information for this book has been such an inspiration to me. It has been
a joy to learn about all of the wonderful social change initiatives in the US and
throughout the world. I feel uplifted and full of hope every time I page through the
listings of the many incredible organizations featured in this book.

I hope this book is a useful tool to help you connect with resources, people, and ide-
as. I encourage you to use the index to locate organizations that you can learn from
or partner with. The books and films listed paint a vibrant picture of social change
issues and methodologies to further our work. Each of the articles and worksheets in
this book is written to provide activists, organizers, and nonprofit staff and volun-
teers a basic, working knowledge of the many administrative processes and tasks
that are crucial for organizational health. Read through the articles and apply what
you learn in a way that makes sense for the work that you do. Check out the list of
formal education programs in nonprofit management and consider taking a few
courses to further strengthen your skills.

I welcome your feedback on this project and hope to meet you one day in a class, at
one of your events, or onsite at your organization. If you need affordable manage-
ment, communications, or technology support or training, please give The Fruition
Coalition a call.

Develop Your Nonprofit Idea

It makes sense to start a new organization if:

 The community, including program participants, volunteers, and the general pub-
lic, demonstrates strong support for the organization in its preliminary stages
 You (as a group) are effective programmatically and administratively
 You have or will be able to develop the resources necessary to operate and flourish
now and into the future
 You have distinctive and extraordinary professional expertise or you own and are
willing to share intellectual property for the financial benefit of the organization
 You do not seek ownership of the organization‘s resources or complete control of
the organization‘s management and operations

If you are confident that your nonprofit will fly, make sure you…
1. Don’t replicate existing programs. Find a way to make your organization distinc-
tive and unique in its‘ programs and services, population served, and/or methodology.
2. Educate yourself. Learn all you can about nonprofit organizations, management,
laws and regulations, fundraising, and your program area. You can do this by reading
books, attending workshops and seminars, and networking.
3. Enlist the help of others. Start talking to people about your idea. Form a Planning
Committee composed of community members, people working in your field of interest,
and business, law, financial, and human services professionals. Meet regularly to share
ideas and map out a start-up plan. Some of these people may continue to serve on
your Board of Directors if you decide to incorporate.
4. Ensure that your commitment is genuine and lasting before going to the
next level. Starting a new organization is an incredibly challenging and time consum-
ing process. You will plant many seeds now that may take months or even years to

Before embarking on your new venture, share your vision with others and gather infor-
mation to ensure that your project is feasible and sustainable. Here are some ideas:

1. Research similar programs. Find out if any other organizations are doing similar
work in your area. To do this, you can call your local United Way, do a search on, or look in local phone or guidebooks. Set up a meeting to learn more
about their mission and programs. This will help you understand more about your
community, its residents, and the programs and services that are already in place. In
addition, there may be a way that you can collaborate together to better serve your
common constituents.
2. Ask the people what they want. Interview the people who would participate in
your activities to see what their needs and desires are. Talk to local small business
owners and residents in your neighborhood to introduce your idea and gauge their lev-
el of interest.
3. Seek the advice of professionals. Talk to a program officer at a local foundation.
They are very familiar with the organizations in your community and can provide in-
valuable insight into unmet needs. Your local legislators or their office managers are
also great sources of information. Talk to professionals in your industry and involve
hem in your planning process.

Planning to Achieve Your Goals

Goals are used to guide an organization‘s activities and gauge its progress toward its vision
and mission. Goal setting is an integral part of every planning process. They should be set
and monitored in just about every area of operations including programs and services, fund-
raising, human resources, and finances.

The steps that are taken in the goal setting process are:

1. Reaffirming your vision and mission statements.

2. Assessing the internal and external situation and gaining an understanding of how this
affects your organization‘s work.
3. Reviewing your recent activities and decide what needs to be changed. Making a list of
these items and categorize them into operational areas.
4. For each item that needs to be changed, setting measurable and realistic goals.
Every goal should be measurable so that you can determine whether or not it has been
5. Breaking each goal down into an action plan. An action plan lists tasks that must be
accomplished in order to achieve the goal. Assigning each task to a specific person.
Determining how much it will cost and how long it will take.
6. If goals fail to be partially or completely achieved, setting new goals that reflect what
you have learned and what has changed internally and externally since the original
goal was set.

Goals can be quantified in a number of ways, including:

 Number of participants
 Number of sessions completed
 Increase or decrease in spending or income
 Time to complete projects or phases of projects
 Change in behavior, attitudes, or opinion

What is your goal?

Task Who will do this? When must it be done? How much will it cost?

Board Development
An organization‘s bylaws spell out the procedure for electing new officers; this is often the re-
sponsibility of a nominating committee. Board members are volunteers and should not be
compensated. Usually one staff person, the Executive Director, is a voting member of the
board. A youth representative may also be chosen, though they usually do not have voting
privileges. Elected Officers are most often a President, Vice President, Secretary, and

Your board of directors should reflect the community you serve and should be diverse as ap-
propriate. A variety of expertise is essential and the following types of people should be con-
sidered for membership:

Program participants
Professionals that relate to your field, for example Social Worker, Psychologist, Visual
Artist, Dancer, Techie, Clergy, Nurse
Business professionals in management, marketing, public relations, and/or human re-
Small business owners
Community activists/concerned citizens
Local government employees

Board Committees may include those that focus on fundraising, special events, nominat-
ing, executive, finance, marketing, human resources, ethics, facilities, public relations, and
program development.

Board responsibilities include:

1. Hiring and supervising the Executive Director
2. Setting the organizational mission
3. Determining strategies to achieve the mission and setting appropriate goals
4. Overseeing implementation of strategies and monitoring results
5. Approving new policies
6. Representing the organization in public
7. Ensuring the financial strength of the organization
8. Approving the annual operating budget
9. Ensuring that organizational activities are ethical and legal
10. Soliciting funds from their circle of friends and colleagues
11. Contributing funds (depending on the nature of the organization, participants may not
be expected to contribute)
12. Attending the organization‘s community events such as fundraisers and open houses
13. Attending other organization‘s events
14. Sharing expertise as needed
15. Bylaws should specify attendance policies, procedure to elect officers, voting/quorum
requirements, length of service, and term limits

An Advisory Council should consist of community leaders, legislators, and foundation rep-
resentatives. Advisory councils usually meet once each year.

Vision and Mission Statements

Vision and mission statements define your organization and set its direction. Because your
vision and mission statements are the basis for your organization‘s existence, its programs
and services, and it goals and objectives, it is imperative to attentively construct and com-
municate meaningful, motivational statements. Both statements should be short enough to
memorize, yet informational and inspirational. After reading your vision and mission, a per-
son with no prior knowledge of your organization should have a good understanding of what
your organization does.

A vision statement is idea-oriented, while a mission statement is action-oriented.

A vision statement is a short phrase or sentence that paints a picture of the end result of
your organization‘s work. It is written as though your organization has accomplished all it
has set out to do. It is the organization‘s reason for existence. It is your guiding light.

A mission statement describes your organization and explains who you are, what you do,
how you do it, where you do it, and why your organization is important. It explains how your
organization is going to achieve its vision.

Let‘s look at The Fruition Coalition‘s vision and mission as examples.

Resources for emerging nonprofit organizations

The Fruition Coalition was formed to meet this need: emerging nonprofit organizations too
often lack the resources they need to sustain and grow. This statement states the overall ob-

Mission Statement

tions in Philadelphia through collaborative partnerships that capitalize on lim-
ited resources and unlimited passion.

This mission statement evokes a sense of both accomplishment and inspiration to get there.
It clearly answers all of the questions:
Who – The Fruition Coalition and grassroots organizations

The vision and mission should be easy to find on all of your organizational literature includ-
ing newsletters, annual reports, proposals, letters, case statements, and websites.

Program Planning and Development

1. Needs Assessment – Conduct research to determine the needs in the community

you serve. Primary research could include interviews, surveys, and focus groups with
potential or existing program participants, community leaders, and local residents.
Contact similar programs in your area to find out what they are and aren‘t doing. Ask
their staff, volunteers, and participants what they perceive as unmet needs in the com-
munity. If programs have been unwelcome or ineffective, get feedback. Ask the peo-
ple who use your services and the staff who implement them what changes they think
would be helpful.

2. Organizational and Program Analysis – Assess your organization‘s capacity and

determine whether or not growth is appropriate or feasible. Review recent program
activities. Brainstorm ideas for growth, change, or cutbacks.

3. Program Planning - Decide which programs will continue, which will terminate,
and new programs that will be started. Develop an implementation plan that describes
each program‘s activities. Set measurable goals for each program. Break down each
goal into a concrete action plan. Assign each task in the action plan to a staff or volun-
teer. Determine outcomes that will demonstrate whether or not the program has been
a success. Design instruments to collect data.

4. Analyze Resources - Determine whether any staffing changes are necessary. Deter-
mine whether your facilities, technology, and equipment are adequate.

5. Financial Planning - Develop a budget for each program. Research and develop di-
verse sources of funding. Set prices for participants.

6. Marketing and Promotion – Publicize your programs and services to the people
who will use them through interpersonal interaction, press releases, flyers, newslet-
ters, etc.

7. Implementation– Deliver programs and services.

8. Outcomes Measurement – This is the process of collecting and analyzing infor-

mation to determine whether or not program goals have been achieved. Collect data
and document behaviors, attitudes, and opinions. Measure changes and patterns in
each. Transcribe data through a software program that can interpret and summarize
the collective information.

9. Program Evaluation – Review results from the outcomes measurement process. If

goals were not achieved, research the cause. Determine ways that the programs may
be changed to meet goals.

10. Communicate Results – Share the success of your programs through grant reports,
annual reports, your website, and newsletter.

Bookkeeping Basics

It is extremely important to keep precise records of every financial transaction conducted on

behalf of your organization. Whether or not your organization is required to file a 990 (tax
return), proper bookkeeping will help you to assess your financial position, evaluate your
spending habits, analyze the success of fundraising campaigns, plan for expansion of pro-
grams and services, and properly acknowledge contributions.

Although there are a lot of software programs that make bookkeeping almost as simple as bal-
ancing a checkbook, it is important to grasp the methodologies used to keep track of your or-
ganization‘s money. Even if a volunteer or accountant does your bookkeeping, understanding
the financial reports they prepare will help you make better business decisions. Because
board members are responsible for an organization‘s financial position, each member should
have knowledge of basic bookkeeping and the ability to read financial statements.

There are three types of financial statements that should prepared each month:

- An Income and Expense Statement (also referred to as a Profit and Loss Statement)
shows money-in and money-out over a period of time. When your income exceeds your
expenses, you have a surplus.

- A Balance Sheet shows your fund balance as of a specific date. This is determined by
subtracting your liabilities (what you owe) from your assets (what you own). Assets
can be fixed (long-term) or current (easily converted into cash). Accounts Receivable
are funds you are expecting to receive in the future and are considered an asset. Ac-
counts Payable are the bills you need to pay and are an example of a liability.

- A Cash Flow Statement shows the change in cash-on-hand during a specific period of
time. Cash-in is added and cash-out is subtracted from the beginning cash balance.

A chart of accounts is a specific categorization of your income, expenses, assets, and liabili-
ties. Each of these is broken down and might include:

Income – Donations, Grants, Membership Dues, Revenue from Special Events

Expenses – Salaries, Rent, Postage, Printing, and Supplies
Assets – Building, Computers, Equipment, Furniture, Petty Cash, and Bank Accounts
Liabilities – Credit Cards, Mortgage, and Bills

To ensure your financial integrity, make sure to:

- Keep all of your receipts and organize them so they are easy to find
- Use a bank account and keep your organization‘s money separate from any personal
- Have two people review and sign every check; if possible, have a third person prepare and
process checks
- Prepare and analyze financial statements at the end of every month and year, comparing
them to the last period
- Work with an accountant to set up a system that makes sense for your organization

Budgeting Basics
A budget is used to plan and monitor an organization‘s income and expenses over a period of
time. An operating budget shows income and expenses for your entire organization. A
program budget shows income and expenses for one specific program or service. A pro-
ject budget shows income and expenses for a one-time project, for example a special event
or capital campaign. All budgets should be realistic as their purpose is to guide and monitor
your organization‘s actual financial activity.

Budgets are usually developed on a yearly basis. The budget process should get started at
least two to three months before the year for which it is being planned. The process of collect-
ing and analyzing information and making informed decisions is a collaborative effort of the
Executive Director, board of directors, program staff, and accountant/bookkeeper. The pro-
gression of events should be as follows:

1. Review the previous year’s budget. Compare last year‘s actual income and
expenses to those that were projected. If there are any large discrepancies, figure
out why this happened and how you can plan better in the future.
2. Analyze spending habits. Determine if there is anything your organization
could spend less on, without sacrificing quality of service.
3. Review financial statements. Get a good understanding of your organization‘s
current financial situation. Identify areas of financial weakness that need to be ad-
dressed in the coming year.
4. Review program goals. Your budget will be based on your anticipated levels of
service for each program.
5. Analyze your resources. Determine if your current facilities, equipment, and
staff are adequate to support your program goals. Decide if any of these items need
to be changed.
6. List your fixed expenses. These expenses remain the same regardless of your
level of service and may include rent, utilities, administrative staff, and equipment
7. List your variable expenses. These expenses are directly dependent on your
level of service and are computed per unit. Variable expenses might include trans-
portation, office supplies, program staff, or computer software.
8. Develop a fundraising plan. Identify sources of revenue that will meet your ex-
penses and enable you to achieve your program and service goals.

Each month, your actual income and expenses should be compared to your budget. By active-
ly monitoring the budget, you will discover and be able to manage discrepancies, as they
occur. Budgets are usually revised half way through the year to account for unexpected cir-
cumstances beyond the control of the organization.

All of your expenses should be categorized as program-related, fundraising, or administrative

– you‘ll see this on the 990 (IRS tax return) form. Fundraising and administrative expenses
should be kept to a minimum. Expenses can be split among the three categories. For exam-
ple, office supplies that are used directly in programs can be classified as program expenses,
even though it might be thought that ‗office‘ supplies are an administrative expense. Staff sal-
aries and benefits can be split according to the amount of time spent in each type of activity.
The amount of spending in each of these three categories should be monitored throughout
the year.

Business Planning

A business plan is a formal document that is prepared when a new organization, program,
product, or service begins or when an existing program, product, or service is expanded. It is
used internally as a guideline for accomplishing goals, assigning tasks, and monitoring spend-
ing. It is employed externally when seeking financing to justify the financial, administrative,
and programmatic capacity and integrity of the organization.

A business plan‘s length can vary according to the complexity of the organization or project; a
typical plan averages between 15 and 20 pages in length plus appendices. It should be neatly
presented with a cover page that includes complete contact information and a table of con-
tents. Each page should be numbered and section headings should be included in order to
make the plan easy to navigate. The language used should not be superfluous, but concise
and to the point.

A business plan should be presented in the following format:

1. Executive Summary – This is a brief introduction that summarizes the content of

the plan and states the amount of financing being sought (if applicable). It should cap-
ture the reader‘s attention and entice them to read on.
2. Situational Analysis – This section contains an analysis of the internal and external
environments and describes the presenting situation that substantiates this new or ex-
panded project.
3. Organization Description – This section states the organization‘s vision and mis-
sion statements. It describes the organization‘s ethical and cultural values. It states
and explains organizational goals and objectives.
4. Products and Services – This section lists and describes each of the organization‘s
products, programs, and/or services, including the qualities and benefits of each.
5. Marketing Plan – The marketing section describes your organization and the pro-
ject‘s uniqueness, or distinctive competencies. It identifies target markets and esti-
mates levels of service to each. A comparative analysis of similar organizations or pro-
grams should include your organization‘s areas of differentiation. This section also de-
scribes the communications and promotional campaigns that will be used to inform
your target market(s) about your project and incite their interest in participation.
6. Human Resources – This section should describe the education, experience, and
skills of your board of directors and executive staff. It should include a description of
the staff that needs to be hired in order to achieve your service goals. Human re-
sources policies should also be included.
7. Operations – This section describes management of facilities, quality control
measures, and manufacturing and distribution processes (if applicable).
8. Finance – Three years of projected financial statements should be included in the ap-
pendix. This section should explain the anticipated income and expenses and describe
the organization‘s fiscal management policies.
9. Legal – This section explains the legal or regulatory restrictions and requirements
that are required.
10. Conclusion – This is a brief summary of the entire plan.
11. Appendices – These might include financial statements, resumes of key staff, job de-
scriptions, promotional pieces, or results of marketing research.

Strategic Planning

A strategic plan is the product of your organization‘s ongoing planning, implementation,

and monitoring process. The strategic planning process identifies emerging organizational
goals and objectives and delineates an action plan for their achievement.

While the board of directors is most directly involved in this process, staff, volunteers, and
program participants should be encouraged to contribute their ideas about the organization‘s
future direction. The process is usually facilitated by an objective third party consultant who
can identify and clarify issues, lead the group toward consensus, and prepare a final, written
plan. The planning process can take several months and the final plan sets direction for the
next three to five years.

The steps of the strategic planning process are:

1. Recommit to your vision and mission statements. Because all of your or-
ganization‘s activities revolve around your vision and mission, it is important to an-
alyze their relevance and rewrite them if necessary before going any further.
2. Conduct a situational analysis (AKA ‘SWOT Analysis’). Identify your or-
ganization‘s strengths and weaknesses and environmental opportunities and
threats. This analysis should be performed on all areas of operations: finances, hu-
man resources, programs, fundraising, etc. This process will help you find ways to
build on your strengths, remedy your weaknesses, take advantage of opportunities,
and minimize threats.
3. Set goals and objectives. Goals and objectives should be set for each area of op-
erations. They should evolve out of your vision and mission and respond to the
findings of your situational analysis.
4. Break it down into tasks. Assign each task to a specific individual, determine
how much it will cost, and the timeframe in which it must be done.
5. Organize the information. List each person‘s responsibilities. Make a calendar
that shows what will happen when. Add up the costs for each operational area. Put
your goals and objectives into writing and make sure that everyone who has a hand
in that process is aware of, and has a deep understanding of, the goals, objectives,
and action plan.
6. Implement the plan. Put your plan into action. Supervise the process by mind-
ing the calendar, staff and volunteer actions, and budget.
7. Monitor the results. Whether a goal is met or not, analyze and assess the out-
come. Determine whether the result is a product of a strength, weakness, oppor-
tunity, or threat. Apply what you learn to planning and implementing in the future.
8. Revise the plan if needed. If the external environment presents an unexpected
situation or the internal environment evolves in an unpredicted way, adjust your
goals, objectives, and plan of action appropriately.
9. Start over again. One year to six months before the end of your existing plan, it‘s
time to get ready to plan again.

Data Collection
Gathering, organizing, and analyzing information can help you make more effective deci-
sions when planning and developing programs, designing promotional campaigns, or
making any type of organizational change. Primary data is new research that your or-
ganization conducts in order to answer a specific set of questions. Secondary data is
research that has already been conducted with results that are transferable for your organ-
ization‘s use. Because of the expense and time involved in conducting original research,
secondary data is often used in place of, or to complement the findings of, primary data.
In the case that the information you need is specific to a particular set of people, place, or
time it may be necessary to design and implement primary research in order to obtain ac-
curate and relevant data.

The steps in the research design process are:

1. Define the problem that needs to be solved.
2. Develop a set of questions that answer the problem.
3. Find secondary data that answers the questions.
4. Identify new sources of information that could be evaluated.
5. Design primary data collection instruments.
6. Conduct primary research.
7. Develop a tool to organize the data, usually a spreadsheet or database.
8. Compile and summarize the data.
9. Analyze the results and develop answers to questions.
10.Share the results with decision makers.

Sources of secondary data include:

1. Federal government agencies, such as the US Census Bureau, Housing
and Urban Development, and Bureau of Labor Statistics provide a variety of
information. The online gateway to federal statistics is
2. State and local government agencies provide statistics about educa-
tion, crime, business and economics, and healthcare.
3. Universities often conduct community-based or other research of rele-
vance to program planning and development.
4. Think tanks and policy organizations conduct research on a variety of
5. Directories list people, organizations, and places that could be sources of
further information.
6. Articles in trade journals often cite statistics in addition to detailed anal-

Sources of primary data include:

1. Interviews with people who can provide insight
2. Surveys and Questionnaires which are comprised of
 Yes and No questions
 Ratings – statements are evaluated according to a scale
 Rankings – items are placed in order of importance
 Open ended questions
3. Focus groups moderated by an objective third party
4. Observation of people‘s behavior, expressions, actions, and reactions

Sources of Income for Nonprofit Organizations

Types of donations, or charitable gifts, include:

 Liquid assets –may be in the form of cash, check, money order, or securities

 Grants – foundation gifts that do not require repayment. Types of grants include:
o General Operating Support
o Program Support for specific programs or projects
o Seed Money for new programs or organizations
o Capacity Building to develop organizational skills and resources
o Capital to fund facilities and equipment purchase and improvement
o Matching which match other funds raised by the organization
o Challenge which are conditional on a certain amount of other funds being

 Planned gifts –large gifts that transfer assets from an individual to an organiza-
tion contingent on the donor‘s death. The most popular types of planned gifts are:
o Bequests – an organization is named as a beneficiary in a will
o Charitable Remainder Trusts – the donor makes a donation which is invest-
ed into an annuity; the donor gets an income stream as long as they are alive
and upon their death the remainder is transferred to the organization

 Real estate, artwork, or other valuable items

 In kind donations – material goods that help the organization fulfill its mission

 Volunteer time—take into account the value of volunteer time on budgets

Other sources of income for your organization might include:

 Membership should be tiered with increasing benefits at each level

 Program Fees should be set in accordance with participants‘ ability to pay

 Earned Income from the sale of goods or services

Remind your volunteers and donors about your organization‘s material needs as part of de-
veloping a mutually beneficial relationship with them. Incorporate opportunities for giving
into all of your interactions and activities, including:

 Annual giving and other campaigns

 One on one communications
 Special events
 Newsletters
 Email newsletters and announcements
 Website

Types of Donors
There are many different entities that contribute their valuable time and money to nonprofit
organizations. It is important to diversify the types of donors who support your organization
in order to ensure your organization‘s financial health. By developing relationships with a
variety of funding sources, your organization will be more likely to generate new sources of
revenue when other resources become extended. Consider each of the following types of do-
nors when developing your fundraising plan:

1. Individuals who contribute to nonprofits include program participants, volun-

teers, staff, customers, friends, neighbors, good samaritans, and philanthropists.

2. Small businesses often contribute to nonprofit organizations in exchange for an

opportunity to promote the name and goodwill of the company in the community.

3. Corporations usually support nonprofit organizations through a corporate foun-

dation or community involvement program. Many companies match their employ-
ees‘ charitable gifts.

4. Foundations usually provide grants, or gifts that are not repaid. There are sever-
al types of foundations:

a. Operating Foundations run programs and do not distribute grants.

b. Family Foundations are founded and governed by an individual, family,

or other cohesive group.

c. Community Foundations pool funds from multiple donors, manage the

funds, and distribute grants according to each donor‘s wishes.

5. Churches often hold fundraising events or donate a portion of their collections to

religious causes; many also give to nonreligious local community groups.

6. Community Service Clubs, such as the Lions Club, the Kiwanis Club, and So-
roptomist International are actively involved in raising funds and awareness for lo-
cal issues.

7. Federated Funds, such as the United Way, collect and distribute donations to
member organizations. Most of these donations are solicited through workplace
giving campaigns.

8. Government; at the state and federal level, distributes funds to nonprofit organi-
zations through grant initiatives sponsored by specific departments or agencies.
Local governments may also make contributions or grants.

Your strategy and approach for each type of donor should correspond to that donor‘s motiva-
tion for involvement with your organization, their giving history with your organization and
in the community, their ability to give, and their socioeconomic characteristics. Conduct ex-
tensive research about each donor before approaching them to ask for a gift.

Donor Research
Before asking for gifts, it is very important to research prospects in order to gain a better un-
derstanding of their needs and motivations. This research enables you to communicate with
donors appropriately, which results in increased connection to, and involvement with, your

When asking for major gifts, such as grants or planned gifts, specific information about the
foundation, corporation, or individual should be collected and analyzed before making con-
tact. Sources of information for each include:

 View their website for publications, guidelines, and other information.
 Obtain a copy of their most recent tax return through The Foundation Cen-
ter‘s Website ( This lists the grants that were made, the
amount of the grants, and the names of organizations that they supported.
 Call a program officer and pitch your idea. Get feedback and suggestions.

 View their website and look for their community involvement section. If
they don‘t have a separate section for charitable activities, it might be found
in the investor information section.
 Obtain a copy of the corporation‘s annual report, which communicates the
company‘s values, goals, and financial position.
 Obtain a copy of the company‘s Hoover‘s or Dun and Bradstreet report for
key executive staff names, details about products and services, and financial
 Read articles about the company in newspapers and trade journals.

 Usually individuals who are approached for major gifts have a personal con-
nection to the organization. They, or someone close to them, may have ben-
efited from your programs. Have a conversation with the people within your
organization who know such individuals in order to get ideas about the do-
nor‘s interests and values.
 Go online and type the person‘s name in a search engine to learn about their
history, achievements, and affiliations. Read magazine or newspaper arti-
cles that feature them.

When asking for smaller gifts, it is more effective to group donors according to demographic,
socioeconomic, or personal characteristics and conduct research on the group as a whole.
This grouping process is also referred to as segmentation.

Donors can be segmented according to…

 Level of participation in your programs and services
 Giving history – the frequency and amount of past gifts
 Income/wealth – their ability and willingness to give
 Age, gender, or culture
 Hobbies and interests

Fundraising Planning

The fundraising planning process ensures that your organization has substantial funding to
meet its program and service goals. A fundraising plan should be developed and put in writ-
ing at least once a year. Because actual funding can vary greatly from that which was
planned, especially in the case of grants, it is important to constantly review and revise the
fundraising plan. The plan should be developed by the Board of Directors under the direction
of the Executive Director with input from program, fundraising, and administrative staff.

1. Review and recommit to your mission and vision. All fundraising activity
should support and further your organization‘s vision and mission.

2. Plan and develop programs. Set measurable and realistic service goals for each
program. Ask program staff for input regarding successes and challenges, as well as
ideas for implementing change.

3. Create a budget for each program as well as an operational budget. Identify

how much money will have to be raised this year.

4. Conduct a situational analysis of your fundraising program. Analyze each

fundraising area; including grants, special events, membership, annual campaign, and
planned giving. List each area‘s internal strengths and weaknesses and external op-
portunities and threats. Create a vision of where you would like each fundraising area
to be at the end of next year.

5. Set fundraising goals. Set financial goals for each fundraising area. Classify donors
according to their ability and likelihood to give and estimate each group‘s total dona-
tions. Break down each fundraising goal into tasks and assign tasks to volunteers and
staff. Communicate responsibilities and expectations. Make sure you will have
enough cash on hand to implement the fundraising plan.

6. Assess existing donors. Determine the methods by which existing donors will be
asked to give and participate in your organization‘s activities this year. Review your
database and make sure that mailing, phone, and email lists are accurate and up to
date. Review written files of major donors.

7. Research new opportunities for funding. Identify the individuals, corporations,

businesses, and foundations that will be approached for funding in the coming year.

8. Match potential funders with financial goals. Decide how each program will be
funded. Determine how administrative expenses will be paid for.

9. Implement your fundraising plan. Design and develop promotional materials,

establish points of contact, and educate new and existing donors about your organiza-
tion, your accomplishments, and your goals.

10. Monitor the results of the plan. Follow-up with staff to ensure tasks are complet-
ed. Compare the actual results of fundraising campaigns to the projected income. Re-
vise the plan as needed.

Elements of a Grant Proposal

1. Cover Letter – The cover letter should be one page in length. It introduces your or-
ganization and project to the foundation. It should state the amount of money you are
requesting and the specific objectives that the funding will help to achieve.

2. Introduction or Executive Summary – This is a brief summary of the entire pro-

posal. State the amount of funds requested. Briefly describe the program that for
which programs are being requested and illustrate the impact that the program will
have in your organization and in the community.

3. Organizational Background – This section should express your organizational ca-

pacity and competency. State your mission and provide an overview of programs and
services. Briefly outline your history and show how your organization has grown into
its present status. Foundation grants are an investment in the community. This sec-
tion needs to demonstrate that your organization is capable of managing people, pro-
grams, and finances responsibly.

4. Needs Assessment – Present the needs of your community and the people who will
benefit from your program or service. Use primary and/or secondary research to sup-
port these needs and always site sources of statistical data. Use both quantitative and
qualitative information. Explain why these needs are significant locally and appeal to
universally understood values.

5. Action Plan/Methodology – Explain specifically how your program or service will

fill community needs. State program goals and delineate the actions that will be taken
to achieve those goals. Provide an implementation schedule.

6. Evaluation – Describe how your organization will determine whether or not goals are
achieved. Explain the methods that will be used to measure each of the goals stated in
the action plan/methodology section. Discuss how the outcomes you measure will be
used as a learning tool that will help your organization better plan and deliver pro-

7. Conclusion – Summarize your funding request, your goals, and the impact that this
project will have on your organization and the community. Describe how the program
will continue to grow and be funded after the term of this grant.

8. Appendices may include:

IRS determination letter
Charitable solicitation letter
Board list
Résumés of key staff
Program budget
Organizational budget
Financial statements and/or audit
990 (Tax Return)
Press clippings
Publications (i.e. newsletter), only if requested

Proposal Writing Tips

Before starting your proposal…

1. Develop a relationship with the funder. Call the foundation and pitch your idea
before preparing a proposal. You may get important feedback about their priorities
and clarify any misunderstandings.
2. Read the guidelines very carefully. Follow the format they request. If they have
an application form, get a copy well ahead of time. Make sure you have time to pre-
pare and deliver your proposal before the deadline.
3. Make sure your project fits the grantmaker’s goals. Research the grants that
have been distributed in the past and compare those projects to yours.
4. Determine the proper amount to request. Match grant funds with other sources
of income and make sure your asking amount is within the foundation‘s normal range.
5. Make sure you are not ‘reinventing the wheel’. Investigate other programs in
your community and be prepared to differentiate your program‘s methodology, geo-
graphical area served, and/or population served.
6. Demonstrate collaboration and/or efficiency. Be prepared to discuss ways that
your organization has partnered with other community organizations through joint ef-
forts or by sharing information/replicating programs. Show that your organization
has taken steps to reduce costs and streamline activities.
7. Have a backup plan if the grant money is not received. This is one reason why
it‘s important to diversify your income. Don‘t depend on one grant to support a pro-
gram. Determine alternative ways to implement the program either with limited funds
or through identifying and pursuing additional sources of revenue.

After completing your grant proposal, make sure…

1. The spelling and grammar are correct. Have a second person proofread the pro-
2. The envelope and cover letter are addressed to a particular person.
3. The proposal is interesting to read and full of information, yet concise. Use
simple language to tell a compelling story about your organization and programs.
4. All attachments are included and in order. Refer to the foundation‘s guidelines
for a list of required attachments. Don‘t send extra materials that aren‘t specifically
5. The appropriate number of copies are enclosed.

After getting funded….

1. Thank the grantor. Immediately send an acknowledgement in writing.

2. Spend funds according to your agreement. You are ethically obligated to do
what you spelled out in your grant proposal. If something major changes, call the
foundation and discuss the situation.
3. Report the actual outcomes of the grant. This helps foundations learn more
about the needs of nonprofit organizations and the communities they serve.

Marketing Basics

Marketing is the art of bringing like-minded people together to achieve common goals. In
nonprofit organizations, these people include program participants, donors, and volunteers.

Segmentation is the process of grouping people according to their demographics, interests,

attitudes, motivation, social affiliations, and/or lifestyle. For instance, you might segment
your donors by amount/frequency of gifts, income/wealth, level of involvement in your or-
ganization, or age. You could segment volunteers by the type of service or their educational
background. Segmentation will help you develop appropriate marketing strategies and tactics
that appeal to and have meaning for your target markets, ultimately resulting in increased
participation and contributions.

A target market is a segmented group of people that desires or needs your products and
services. Niche marketing satisfies an unmet need in the community in a unique way.

The Marketing Mix

Place - Where your target market experiences, purchases, or consumes your product or ser-
Product - The actual or perceived (‗image‘) product or service that is offered to the public.
Price - The amount of time and money required to experience the product or service.
Promotion - The process of educating and exciting your target market about your products
and services through advertising, public relations, sales, and promotions.

Marketing Channels are the personal or impersonal spaces that connect your organization
with your target market. Channels include your office, the Internet, email, mail, meetings,
phone, stores, events, and publications.

Marketing Research can help you identify and gain a deeper understanding of the charac-
teristics of your target markets, community needs, competitive programs, and opportunities
for innovation. It can help you identify and investigate problems, assess a program‘s impact,
or measure the effectiveness of a campaign. Primary research is original research de-
signed, executed, tabulated, and analyzed for the first time. Examples include surveys, inter-
views, experiments, observation, and focus groups. Secondary research is already in exist-
ence; examples include census data or health statistics. Qualitative data is descriptive in
nature while quantitative data is concrete and can be interpreted as a number.

Use the Target Market Analysis Worksheet on the next page to take a closer look at the peo-
ple who support your organization so that you may better understand and serve their needs.
Complete one sheet for donors, one for volunteers, and another for program participants.
Derive at least two distinct target market groups for each category. Define each target mar-
ket‘s characteristics. Develop a marketing mix that is appropriate for each target market.

Marketing Planning is the process of analyzing your marketing program, setting goals for
each target market, and developing an action plan to meet those goals. Use the Marketing
Planning Worksheet to put your marketing goals in writing and construct marketing strate-

Public Relations Basics

Public Relations is the art of influencing public opinion about your organization through
personal or impersonal interaction. Public perception is shaped through publications such
as brochures and newsletters, demeanor on the phone and in person, and the mass media.

Publicity is free exposure provided through the media. Types of media include maga-
zines, newspapers, radio, television, and the Internet. Publicity can be obtained by distrib-
uting a press release, holding a press conference, or by writing an informational article that
demonstrates your organizational leaderships‘ expertise. Media contacts can be researched
in the yellow pages, in printed media directories in the library, or online at a site like

A Press Release is a written request for publicity that can be distributed via mail, email, or
fax. Any newsworthy project or event can be submitted; this might include special events,
grants received (with the funder‘s permission), new programs, new publications, or staff ap-
pointments. The press release should be distributed to media outlets with an audience that
would be interested in your news. It should always be addressed to a specific person or de-
partment; this information can be researched on the Internet or by calling the main number.
Make sure your press releases are received at least three weeks in advance of the requested
publication date.

A press release is usually one page long and typed in a 12-point font. The language used
should be clear, concise, and simple. It should be on your organization‘s letterhead and fol-
low this format:

DATE: Today‘s Date


Phone and/or email


(City, State) -- The first paragraph should contain pertinent facts, including
who, what, where, and when. Also include a way for the reader to get more
information such as a phone number or email address. Write this paragraph
so that it could stand alone and clearly communicate your purpose.

The second paragraph contains more specific information about the project
or event. This could include brief biographies, historical or cultural context,
quotes, and/or an explanation about why this project/event is significant.

The third paragraph should contain background information about your or-
ganization. Include a brief description of programs and services, leadership,
and complete contact information.

Create a Basic Website

1. Determine what you want the website to accomplish and set appropriate
goals. These goals might include obtaining new donors, participants, or volunteers, in-
creasing their involvement, facilitating dialogue, connecting people to community re-
sources, or building momentum for the cause for which you work.
2. Decide what information you are going to share via the site. The following are
often included:
- Your mission statement and program information
- News about programs and special events
- Complete contact information
3. Obtain website design software.
4. Develop a mechanism to collect information about your website visitors
- A form to capture visitor contact information including name, address, email, inter-
ests, and demographics
- Online registration for programs and special events
- Polls to measure visitor attitudes and opinions about relevant issues
5. Provide a way for visitors to interact with each other and build community.
This may include:
- A guestbook where visitors can share feedback
- Message boards/blogs where visitors can share ideas and information
- A chat room where visitors can instantly contact each other or your organization
- Provide a way for visitors to donate such as with a link to
6. Design the site so that it is…
- Easy to navigate – Every page should link to the home page. Every other page
should be one or two clicks away from the home page. It should be easy to get
around the site. Consider including a site map.
- Content-rich – Include resources that make your visitors use your site as their
homepage or bookmark your page and return in the future. Include links to other
sites, news, articles, reviews, or any other kind of useful information.
- Accessible to people with disabilities – A free service called Bobbytm at will help you detect any problem areas.
- Consistent with offline promotional materials – Use similar colors and
fonts. Use a similar style of language and incorporate your logo.

To get online you need a domain name, hosting service, and ftp software. Your
domain name (also known as URL or address) is the The hosting
service is the space on another computer where you will upload your website files so that
they can be shared with anyone connected to the Internet. Your hosting service will also pro-
vide statistics about website usage, including number and time of ‗hits‘ or visits to your site.
FTP software is used to transfer files from your computer to your host‘s computer.

After transferring files to your host, use a web browser to view your site as it appears online.
Many times things look different online than they do on your local computer. Double check
every link periodically to make sure that they still work.

There are many companies that make it easy to design, upload, and edit a website by offering
everything in one package, sometimes for free. These companies include,

Website Promotion
Now that you have created a website and uploaded it into cyberspace, the next step is to promote it
both online and offline in order to drive traffic to the site. Encourage your current donors, volun-
teers, and program participants to use the site and introduce new people to your organization
through the information and resources contained on your website. Your website is a tool to engage
new and existing friends of your organization and to encourage their further commitment and in-
volvement with your activities. Therefore, it is important to integrate the website and its use with
your organization‘s other ongoing activities and promotions.

Online Promotion
1. Use page titles. Each page on your site should have a title that includes your organization‘s
name as well as specific information about the page. For instance, a page about your programs
and services might be titled ―Organization Name – Programs and Services.‖
2. Develop meta tags. Meta tags are in the heading of your website and are not visible using
web browsers. They help search engines find and organize information about your website.
Your description section should include one or two sentences about your organization‘s mis-
sion. Keywords that describe your organization and its activities should be listed and separat-
ed by commas. A good technique for choosing keywords is to pretend that you are looking for
your organization‘s website on a search engine like Google or Yahoo! and include the words that
you would have used in your search.
3. Submit your site to search engines. You can manually submit your site to each search en-
gine from their site. There are also services available that will submit your site to multiple
search engines all at once. Avoid paying costly fees for this service – it is fairly simple to do on
your own. Visit individual search engine‘s sites for their submission procedure. It is very im-
portant that your site has page titles and meta tags before submitting it to search engines.
4. Have links to your site put on other websites. Make sure you register with
and update your profile at to include your website‘s address. Ask webmasters of
sites that serve your target market to do a link exchange where each of you would put up a link
to the others‘ site, sometimes with a brief description.
5. Use email signatures. In every email that you send out, include your contact information
and a link to your website.
6. Create an opt-in email list. Gather email addresses submitted from printed and online
forms and start a monthly newsletter by email that encourages readers to use various sections of
the website. Always provide an opportunity to recipients to ‗opt-out‘ of the list.
7. Give people an exciting reason to visit your site. This might include a contest, a free
promotional item for visitors, or providing special information that is only available online.
8. Turn visitors into repeat visitors. Tailor your content to your target audience and include
resources and interactive features to involve them in your online community.

Offline Promotion
1. Include your website address on all of your printed materials, including letterhead, busi-
ness cards, newsletters, brochures, and flyers
2. Create a flyer or postcard to announce the new website. Send it to donors, volunteers,
neighbors, and anyone else who is involved with your organization.
3. Tell everyone about it! Communicate the presence of your site, along with the benefits of
using it, to everyone you meet.

To see how many people have visited your site, use a hitcounter. Detailed information about your
site‘s visitors, including time and date of visit, their internet service provider name, the type of web
browser they use, and the operating system that they use, are usually provided by either your
hitcounter provider or your web hosting service.

Volunteers are an essential resource for nonprofits‘ existence. The goodwill and dedica-
tion of friends and neighbors builds strong, responsive, and sustainable organizations and
contributes to community cohesiveness and vitality. If you are interested in partnering
with an organization as a volunteer, there is a broad range of volunteer jobs available …
from one day to two years, from one hour a week to forty. Types of positions include serv-
ing on a Board of Directors, cleaning, teaching, painting, cooking, writing, special events,
design, data entry…just about anything you can think of. So no matter what your inter-
ests, skills, and amount of time available, there is probably an organization out there look-
ing for YOU!

There are many benefits of being a volunteer, including:

 Connection to a cause – Be a part of something bigger than yourself
 Professional development – Add depth to your job skills portfolio
 Meeting new people – Make new friends with similar interests

To get the most out of your volunteer experience…

1. Remember that this is a job, but it’s lots of fun too. Because both you and
the organization are investing your time and energy, treat your volunteering with
the same respect as you would any other job. The more you put into the experi-
ence, the more you‘re likely to get out of it.
2. Find an organization that matches your interests. Decide what neighbor-
hood you want to work in and what causes you are interested in furthering. You
can search all of the 501 (c) 3 organizations in the US at At this site,
you can limit your search to specific program areas and locations. Meet with the
organization‘s Volunteer Coordinator and discuss the mission and programs to de-
termine your level of interest in working at that nonprofit. Ask plenty of questions
and shop around before making a long-term commitment.
3. Set goals and decide what’s in it for you. Your volunteer experience can be
an opportunity to work on a project outside of your normal work responsibilities,
fine tune a specific set of skills, or learn new things to which you otherwise would-
n‘t be exposed. Decide what you want to accomplish and match your goals with the
4. Clarify your role, responsibilities, and expectations. If there is no written
job description, make sure you are sure what you are required to do, as well as what
you are not permitted to do. Keep in contact with your supervisor, ask questions,
and get feedback about your performance. Share your thoughts and feelings about
the experience with the organization – it will help them to plan and organize more
effectively in the future.
5. Extend your involvement beyond volunteering. Attend the organization‘s
events and contribute to its annual fund to show your support and commitment.

Specific volunteering opportunities can be found online at:

Careers in Nonprofit Organizations

Much like for-profit companies, staffing in nonprofit organizations depends on the size,
scope, and type of each organization. While most nonprofits are small and community-
based, many are international and ‗corporate‘ in nature - and there is a full range in-
between. The number and type of jobs available in an individual organization depends on
its capacity, service goals, and budget.
Because most nonprofits are subject to limited, restricted, and/or inconsistent funding, it
is common for employees to wear multiple hats and work beyond defined job responsibili-
ties. The pay in nonprofits is also generally less than comparable work in the for-profit
sector but it is becoming increasingly acceptable to show appreciation of employees‘ hard
work by remunerating them at market value. Volunteers are integral to most nonprofits‘
ability to achieve their missions, as they provide essential services at little cost to the or-
ganization (there are recruiting, training, supervising, and thanking costs involved).
The types of work available in nonprofit organizations are quite diverse. There are career
paths for program-related, administrative, and support workers. Some fields relevant to
nonprofits are:
Program-Related or Direct Service Fields
Social Work
Health Care
The Arts
Library Science
Community Organizing
Administrative Fields
Executive Management
Public Relations
Human Resources
Office Management

Working with Consultants

Consultants are independent contractors who work with an organization on a clearly de-
fined project for a limited period of time.

There are several benefits to working with a consultant:

 Objectivity – a third party view of your organization‘s situation
 Expertise – professional ideas and advice
 Cost effectiveness – may be less expensive than hiring a new employee or
doing a job that your organization is not capable of completing properly

Consultants work with nonprofit organizations in many areas, including:

 Capacity building
 Fundraising
 Graphic and web design
 Information technology

To locate a consultant for your project…

 Ask other organizations for recommendations.
 Ask your local United Way or other community resources for ideas.
 Check with your state association – consultants are often members of these
associations, too.
 Check with professional associations related to the field for which you are
seeking assistance.
 Look in an online directory of consultants, such as those on and

Tips for Hiring a Consultant

1. Interview before hiring and make sure you are comfortable with the consultant
both personally and professionally. Consultants should not charge for an initial

2. Ask to see work samples, or a list of the types of projects that he or she has
worked on. Make sure that his or her experience is relevant to your organization‘s

3. Check his or her references and ask a lot of questions.

4. Clearly define responsibilities and expectations of both your organization

and the consultant. Make sure you clearly understand your role.

5. Provide as much information as possible. Withholding information will

make the consultant‘s job more difficult and will deprive your organization of the
opportunity for assistance, clarification, and growth.

6. Sign a written contract. Usually the consultant will prepare this document. It
should include a list of each parties‘ responsibilities, a timeline, and an estimate of
