Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our organization has a big vision, we need to break down that vision into separate categories and focus on one at a time. We need also several avenues to fund raise, where to start and who is our targeted demographic. We also need assistance in grant writing. We have set ourselves up with paypal, amazon smile etc. as avenues for fund raising but we need more help targeting the corporate funding. We have set up accounts with several social medias such as Facebook, Twitter etc. to get our name and our vision out to the public. We have narrowed down what is most urgent and now we need to execute it.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organizations goals are to truly make in impact on a child'l life by putting actions to our words. We want to show children that there is more to life then just getting through high school. We want to prepare them with the correct tools and learning services to teach our youth that they have a chance to really make something of themselves in their future. We want to incorporate sports, music and on site visits to companies that one day they may want to work for or better yet start their own. We also want to be able to give scholarships to children who aren't able to afford college or trade school. We can only hope in return that the child will grow up one day and remember we cared ad that then they will turn around and do the same for another child.

We have put together a list of events to help fund raise so we can start working towards our goals. Along with setting up accounts through companies like Amazon Smile, Ebay, and establishing relationships with fellow organizations. We have put together a budget and program plan to show exactly where all the funds will be used. We are going to networking meetings and events. We also reached out to local businesses and plan to extend to corporate funding.

We have a small team but with great impact. The founder and CEO is well known in the athletic filed and the President has over 10 years of working with other non-profit organization along with our Director of Operations who has now about 12 years experience working with non-profits and successfully running a homeless outreach program. We have recruited other volunteers and are educating them on on to fund raise to bring more capital in to successfully execute our goals. We have also relationship with several state representatives not only at the capital but also on the school boards because our plan is to get into a school and base our after school programs their.

We have established our vision and what we want to see happen. We are not on our journey to fund raising and creating an event to introduce our organization to our community.
