We are here to help you achieve!
We look forward to making our newsletter the one e-mail you look forward to opening
each week because it is filled with helpful tips to make you more successful.
In this week’s newsletter, I want to talk to you about:
* Grants and why they are so important,
* Taking action is a requirement for success,
* Money making opportunities for your organization.
Tip # 1 –Grants and why they are so important. There is grant money to be had for
educational purposes, building projects and so much more IFFFF you know where to look
for it and are willing to saddle up on the learning curve to go after it.
“Grants" is a general term for the multitude of federal, state, local and corporate
programs available to assist nonprofit groups, and community based organizations. This
assistance can take many forms, including direct funding, loans, surplus government
equipment, and other resources.
Grants are not simply “free money”; each individual grant program has strict prerequisites
and eligibility requirements that must be satisfied by your organization. Personally, I’m
afraid that a lot of non profits don’t pursue grant opportunities because in order to do so,
you have to first be crystal clear about what you want, how you are going to spend it and
how you will be accountable for the money. The greatest twp suggestions I can make to
you in this week’s newsletter is; 1. that the same procedure you would follow to file for a
grant is the SAME procedure you should be following in the running of your business
everyday. In other words, you should be crystal clear about where you are going, what
you are going to do when you get there and how you will be held accountable for the
outcome! 2. When you get your copy of Making Profits for Your Non-Profit on the home
page of this site, you will also get an audio interview I did with a 25-year grant writing
vet who has some amazing tips on how to prepare your organization and your grant
package to increase your odds of success!
It is for this reason alone that I think every non profit should be researching and going
after grant money every month. I think it is a great exercise in learning how to run your
business with clarity and the more clear you are about your business success, the more
success you will have.
Tip #2 –Taking action is a requirement for success! – As the bible says, “Faith without
works is dead”, the same is true for business success… great ideas without action is a
sure fire recipe for failure. I suggest that every business I work with commit to doing at
least two, action based, forward moving marketing things each day of the week, every
week of the year. That is a sure fire recipe for success!
Have a wildly successful week,
