It is my sincere hope that 2013 saw you hitting or exceeding the goals you set in 2012. If you were able to do so, congratulations!
For some of you this may not have been the case, especially if you run a small non-profit. You may not have been able to engage your community as well as you had hoped.
As you know, an engaged community of people who know your story and are moved to contribute their resources through financial support, volunteerism and expertise allows your organization to focus more effectively on the important work at hand.
Soliciting the support of your community can be overwhelming. A tight budget can put a damper on your best efforts to do so.
When you’ve taken care of your operational expenses, there’s not a whole lot of money left over to apply to marketing and fundraising; no matter how desperately they are needed. You have limited resources and need to grow your organization at an appropriate pace for you, while building authentic relationships with all of your stakeholders.
If you’re looking for an affordable way to deepen or build relationships with individuals in your community, while learning new skills and strategies that you can apply to your future endeavours, The Other Bottom Line may be able to assist you.
If this sounds like you, perhaps I can help you get to the next level of community engagement by providing affordable on-going guidance for as little as $1,500/mo or specific support for a particular project (fee dependant on project needs).
Once again, Happy New Year and may 2014 be your best year ever!
