HOW CAN WE SERVE YOUR NONPROFIT?
WHAT IS A NONPROFIT RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT FIRM?
Well, you know what all the words mean individually, nonprofit - resource - development - firm, but what does that really mean?
NONPROFIT - a tax-exempt organization or communally known as a charity where we give generously to others in need (that’s an easy one!)
RESOURCE - The most common resource is money, but there’s so much more! Resources are everything it takes to run a nonprofit and it can be tangible or intangible such as fundraising, grant writing, brokering community partnerships, or human resources like qualifies program staff, volunteers, or board of directors.
DEVELOPMENT - This is the part where we pull all the resources together and make it grow! Philanthropy is a business structure and must operate like one. When SERVE-U develops your nonprofit, we also have to “develop” concepts like advocacy campaigns, program design thinking, infrastructure, compliance, and marketing.
FIRM - We don't do this work alone. Teamwork is key! SERVE-U has a roster of subject-matter experts (SME’s) who stand brilliant and “firm” within their own areas: C-Suite development personnel, researchers, editors, legal financial advisors, and whoever is needed to help the nonprofit.
SERVE-U will to assess your nonprofit need, unfreeze your current methods of operation, create a profitable and sustainable business model, and freeze your new thinking patterns so your programs can impact the masses.
