What Progress is Your Nonprofit Organization Making Towards Its Goals?
Last year, seven million donors visited the website Charity Navigator. Charity Navigator evaluates nonprofit organizations in an effort to help donors decide if an organization is the best choice for their gift.
In addition to questions like what’s the organization’s mission and goals, Charity Navigator encourages donors to ask, “What progress is your organization making towards its goals?” and “What sources are available to increase my confidence in your work?”
Stop for a second. Would you be able to answer those questions immediately? Would you be able to offer the donor details that drill down into all of your programs?
If your answer to “What sources are available to increase my confidence in your work?” is last year’s annual report or a 990 from two years ago, you are not giving yourself a competitive differentiator.
Wouldn’t it be great to be able to instantly pull up the graphs and charts that would answer the donors question with a representation of year-to-date data as well as past years?
If your answer is, “Of course, but with an annual budget of $2.5 million we don’t have the accounting personnel let alone the ability to afford tools that would allow us to do that,” Unalp CPA Group would love to help you.
