Unrestricted Funds

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Donors to a nonprofit organization may designate or “restrict” the use of their donations to a particular purpose or project. An example is a gift to a special scholarship fund at a university. “Unrestricted Funds” are donations the nonprofit may use for any purpose.

I mentioned this fundraising opportunity in a Blog several months ago, however, would like to revisit it in a bit of a different light.

Are you aware that your nonprofit, or a nonprofit you are associated with: can receive “Unrestricted”, sustainable, monthly donations from your community supporters as well as from your own organization’s processing of payments for membership fees, donations, merchandise purchases or events while reducing transaction fees at the same time, and implementing these programs won’t cost your organization a thing!

For a long time, I have been researching various fundraising opportunities to assist nonprofits with ways to increase their cash flow and increase donations and corporate support in ways that provide hassle free and sustainable revenue that flows to nonprofits monthly; and also provide “Unrestricted Funds” that can be used for any purpose i.e. rent, utilities, staffing, etc. – all expenses that nonprofits incur but donors are not very open to supporting. Not an easy task at the best of times, but during this economic downturn even more of a daunting task.

About 7 months ago I came across a couple of programs that do just that, which I have partnered with that adds great value to my existing professional fundraising business! It’s with a company that offers a complete range of Payment Processing Services including: Credit and debit processing, Smartphone, Mobile, Wireless & Point of Sale Retail Processing, Online, Internet Processing, Gift/Loyalty Cards, Community Donation Initiatives for Non-Profits – Zero Cost Processing for Schools, Childcare Facilities, Property Management & other Industry Categories , No Contract Periods, No Cancellation Fees.

This company also has more than 2 decades of experience in 20 different countries around the world in their field. What I love about their programs is the savings and win-win for revenue and long-term sustainability it creates between your nonprofit organization and your current or potential corporate supporters.

The first program addresses attracting more donors and creating “Unrestricted Funds” for nonprofits. You and I both know how difficult it is to keep overhead costs down and to attract or maintain corporate donations, especially in the current economy. Many companies just don’t have the budgets to maintain support of community organizations. This program gives you the ability to provide a tangible benefit to companies that enables them to support your organization without it impacting their budgets, and these donations can be designated to wherever the money is needed!

The second program I would like to bring to your attention to is a way your organization can reduce your operating expenses with significant savings on Payment Processing Services fees. Processing costs are one of the biggest expenses associated with accepting donations or putting on events. There is now a way for nonprofits to reduce these costs and increase their cash flow. The company would be pleased to provide you with a free no obligation savings analysis on your volume and percentages to see what savings in processing costs may be available so we can determine how much they can save you and ensure you get accurate numbers that are relevant to your specific organization.

I’m really excited to be associated with these programs and to be able to bring them to you to help you meet your financial goals. If you are interested in exploring how your nonprofit, or a nonprofit you are associated with, can start to reduce your operating expenses and/or create an ongoing hassle free revenue source that provides incentive and benefits for corporate partners to support your organization, I would be pleased to provide you more detailed information and how to get your organization started today.

I look forward to assisting your nonprofit, or a nonprofit organization you are associated with, and helping you earn more money for your programs and services at no cost to the nonprofit organization.

In addition, if you would like to learn more about how my experience and skills may be able to help benefit your nonprofit, or a nonprofit you may be associated with, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me as I would be pleased to meet and discuss the opportunity of working together.
