If you are a Christian non profit, you believe or should believe that God supplies the funds...but He does that through people.
If a potential donor has a substantial amount of funds to invest in your organizations... whether it's $1,000, $10,000, $100,000 or 1 Millions or more...
What are they looking for? How do you think or believe they evaluate your organization?
You do need a good website that grabs their attention and instantly conveys
1. Your Vision Statement
2. Your Mission Statement
3. Your Strategy for reaching your Mission
The Basic info you need on your site!
But what are donors really looking for?
Relationships...It's all about relationships!
We must have clarity about the mission. I look for people I respect who are practical-minded. I want to be sure it's the sort of project that I can bring something of value to, and in which I'm being involved in a meaningful way. So I always ask myself: Is it a mission I believe in? Do I believe in the people who are in it? and Does it use my talents and gifts in a way that engage me?"
There's a lot of noise going on in the world. We need to listen to God speaking to us and that it is God that is speaking.
When I stand before Jesus one day, I want to hear, "Well done, good and faithful servant". Isn't that what you want to hear?
