Nonprofits and charities are forced to ask themselves, “How do we effectively balance mission delivery with mission development?” The natural next question is, “How do we afford to access the level of expertise needed to grow and sustain our mission?”
At GOODWORKS 360°, we believe all nonprofits deserve access to the best and brightest thinkers on social impact. Those experts exist, and they are willing to help. The problem: much of this remarkable talent is not easily access where needed, out of reach to so many deserving nonprofits. Those with both talent and passion are too often based in “Anywhere, USA” (or beyond) and the nonprofits needing assistance are all over the world.
Closing the passion–mission-affordability gap.
GOODWORKS 360° “virtually” matches the need with the talent, via FREE virtual delivery. We do it by “Delivering Mission-Critical Pro Bono Services To Good Deserving Nonprofits Around The World”
To be clear: there are no hidden costs in this “pro bono” arrangement. When GOODWORKS 360 says pro bono, we mean work undertaken voluntarily with no expectation of payment. Period.
We recognize that a structured “virtual” investment of expert time and talent is an effective strategy for nonprofit capacity building. Our interested nonprofits are not burdened with endless meetings and never-ending bureaucracy to access the help needed. Everything we do is virtual, with results efficiently and effectively delivered. And there’s NO contract to sign because we operate purely in good faith with nothing more than a “virtual handshake”.
What type of nonprofit needs the help of GOODWORKS 360°?
Nonprofit teams are passionate, committed people, but often they are overwhelmed.
82.5 percent of all reporting public charities have an annual revenue of under one million dollars. Limited budgets mean most of the nonprofit sector are often strapped for time, resources, and expertise. There are many innovative ways to approach these challenges, including finding experts that will volunteer time and great thinking to help drive important initiatives and enable nonprofit staff to focus on mission and service delivery. The ideal role of a GOODWORKS 360° pro bono consultant is that of an objective and experienced professional helping to achieve a charity goal or implement a new process, within their expert and specific skill area.
