Non-Profits Are Keys to A Thriving Community

Non-profit organizations are one of the most common organizations to this day. one of the reasons why they stand out is because the purpose can’t be to line people’s pockets. Non-profits raise money but they spend it to further their mission, not to benefit the donors or founders. Some examples of non-profit purposes include feeding the homeless, managing an association of businesses, and preaching the gospel. 

We highly believe here at SA Collective that helping non-profit organizations provide critical services that contribute to economic stability and mobility is essential. We see how they strengthen communities in other important ways and how their leaders are the voice of the people they serve. 

These organizations often understand better than anyone else their communities’ needs and the best way to meet them. Strong, well-resourced non-profits that are connected to the decision-making infrastructure in their communities can catalyze growth and opportunity.

 Nowadays, we are found with an influx in growing needs and shrinking government resources. Non-profits are being asked to do even more with less, placing strain on their already limited resources. Public and private funding for non-profits tends to expand and build programs that strengthen their operations. 

How Can the Business Community Help? 

We need to expand our notion of support to include capacity-building investments, skills-based volunteerism, and network creation.

Teaming up with a non-profit organization to understand their real needs and wants to propel their organization is another great way to help. Not only will it elevate your business but it also helps the community and it helps build the reach of that specific non-profit. Find out what will make the most impact and co-create a program to support their vision and goals. 

Creative Ways to Spread Awareness/ Help

1. Through social media content and spreading the word of these organizations and their communities. 

2. Through donations. You can give finances, toys, clothes, food, and water. We must engage with these organizations and make the connections they often need to support their mission. 

3. Volunteering. Passion for community growth is the main reason non-profits start, and volunteering is a key part of the growth. Volunteers bring diversity and personal experience to enhance organizations. There are many reasons to support your local non-profit associations, whatever the reason may be do it. Get involved, donate and be a part of the reason why your community becomes better.
