Succeeding with Corporate Sponsorship

Every year, corporations spend millions of dollars on charitable sponsorships. Unfortunately, many nonprofits don’t have a clue about how to approach a potential sponsor, prepare the information needed, and persuade a sponsor to join them in a mutually beneficial project. To succeed, nonprofits need to prepare sponsorship proposals that provide promotional value to the potential sponsor.

Organizations that become good sponsorship partners realize that this is a business deal, not a donation. They also learn that the skills involved in securing good corporate sponsorships are different from those that work in everyday fundraising. No matter what your program does, there is most likely sponsorship funding for it; the key is knowing how to prepare an attractive sponsorship proposal that will relate your need to the most appropriate corporate sponsors.

We invite you to spend a valuable hour with CharityNet USA and learn how growing your organization’s projects and programs can be possible through corporate sponsorships!

Annual Compliance for Nonprofits

Virtually all exempt nonprofits have the requirement to file an annual tax return with the IRS, regardless of income or activities. Unfortunately, thousands of organizations lose their 501(c) exemptions each year for non-compliance with this annual filing. In most cases, this was simply the result of a lack of knowledge amongst their administrators.

In addition to IRS compliance, nonprofits must be diligent in understanding and adhering to all state and local regulatory compliance requirements in order to remain in good standing, able to operate, and collect funding.

We invite you to spend a valuable hour with CharityNet USA and allow us to assist you with identifying all required compliance filings, so that you can focus on fulfilling your invaluable mission!

Topics of Interest:

  • Annual Information Returns with the IRS
  • Public Inspection Requirements

Combining Online Fundraising and Marketing Teams to Conquer the World Wide Web

Online marketing is no longer optional for nonprofit organizations. Even the smallest and most local nonprofit must reach out to the public through an online presence. In fact, having a website helps to validate the legitimacy of your organization. It may be unfair, but when people search for your website and find nothing, they begin to wonder if you are really who you say you are. Having a website is one of the costs of admission for a nonprofit.

You must have an appealing website that can easily be found by people searching on the Internet; you must have a way to collect email addresses of those who visit so you can follow up; and you must have a way for people to donate online.

Online marketing for a nonprofit is very similar to what a business does, and is an essential aspect of your organization’s fundraising efforts. Marketing and fundraising are two halves of a whole. But when they don’t operate that way, the outcome of each team’s efforts is far less than it could be, undermining an organization’s ability to engage its base.

Join us for invaluable information on planning and implementing an online marketing and fundraising campaign in an effort to help your organization reach and exceed its funding goals for the year.

Creating Successful Yearend Fundraising Campaigns

Research has shown that nonprofit organizations raise 40% to 70% of their total annual donations during the last 6 weeks of the year. Even more striking is that up to 22% of total donations can come in just the last couple of days of the year. These numbers emphasize a fact that successful nonprofits have learned to capitalize on – people are much more likely to give to charity during the yearend cycle.

Whether their reasons for giving are due to the warmth of the holiday season or the desire to secure a tax break, it’s vital for your organization to take full advantage of this opportunity. To be successful, nonprofits need a well-prepared Yearend Campaign that will continuously engage their supporters during the giving season. 

We invite you to spend a valuable hour with CharityNet USA and receive invaluable information on planning and implementing an end of year campaign in an effort to help your organization reach and exceed its funding goals for the year.
