Learn tips and hints to use a variety of electronic and technical equipment to enhance work with volunteers.

~ July 2009 ~



Raising resources for local organizations can be expensive.  Events take time, people, and those with lots of cash to spare.  Direct mail appeals are costly.  In a time of economic austerity sites like the Network for Good can be a boon.  A carefully selected committee of volunteers in an organization could launch a campaign to move people to donate to your program and/or organization in this easy to use online format. 

This is a website where you can give to your favorite charity/charities and have all your donation records stored and accessible at any time. The website is safe and secure; meeting the BBB Wise Giving Alliance standards for charity accountability.  Since its inception more than 450,000 donors have contributed more than $250 million dollars using the Network for Good giving system.

There are several reasons why this online site might to the answer to some funding woes.

  • It is easy to donate online using an electronic giving system rather than writing a check and putting it in the mail.
  • Giving records that are all in one place makes your life easier at tax time and when you want to give again. A donor can log on at any time to access this information
  • There is a 4.75% fee to support the organization in its mission and for training and support to more than 50,000 nonprofits in their fundraising efforts.
