Technology Consulting--Free

Welcome back!

I have a friend/client with a technology consulting business who will take a look at your current technology costs and what you are receiving for that cost, and make recommendations on how you can save money. Other clients have saved considerable amounts on what they spend for internet access, web-hosting, telephone service and equipment, wireless, etc. I will be happy to connect you with him if you request in a comment below.

Additionally, your community organization could become an affiliate for wholesale services and earn money for your nonprofit cause. Let me know so I can make the connection for you.

Welcome back!

"We have to step out of this charity model, and as nonprofits, we have to start being involved in the political discourse. Hunger's not about food."

Case Foundation: Make It Your Own Awards

Welcome back!

From the Case Foundation, Make It Your Own Awards:

Our mission is to achieve sustainable solutions to complex social problems by investing in collaboration, leadership, and entrepreneurship.

Jean and Steve Case founded the Case Foundation in 1997 to reflect their family's heartfelt commitment to finding lasting solutions to complex social challenges. Today, the foundation is pursuing a number of initiatives, and is particularly focused on three strategies:

* Encouraging collaboration;
* Supporting successful leaders; and
* Fostering entrepreneurship in the nonprofit sector.

The foundation is applying these strategies to meet the needs of underserved children and families; create thriving and sustainable economic development for communities; bridge cultural and religious divides; expand civic engagement and volunteerism; and accelerate innovative approaches to health care.

The foundation's work stretches across the United States and around the world. To date, we have supported more than 150 organizations that reflect our commitment to collaboration, leadership, and entrepreneurship -- and, ultimately, to improving the health and well-being of children, families, and communities.
