STARTING AN NGO

Become a Social Entrepreneur and Make a Living Making a Difference

Imagine having an exciting and rewarding career that gives you the opportunity to make a living doing what you love while making the world a better place. You can when you start a nonprofit business.

Do you feel inspired to use your talents to help others? Would you like to change the world, or change the lives of a group of people? Do you feel passionate about the environment, human rights, education, literacy, health, or another cause that benefits humanity?

Now is the time to start doing work you believe in  by starting your own NGO

As a fundraising expert I discovered that a lot of funds are budgeted for some NGOs in Nigeria, often times such funds are returned to the donor agencies. I have compile the list of foreign donor agencies that you can get funds to finance your charity project.

As a nonprofit business founder (also known as a social entrepreneur) you can get paid to do good. Although you can't personally earn a profit when you start a nonprofit business, your nonprofit business can create a job for you doing meaningful work that benefits society.

For example, can you imagine yourself starting and leading a nonprofit business that is working to:

         Protect our environment

          Increase appreciation of the arts

          Raise awareness and funds to prevent illness

          Improve educational opportunities for children

          Help the poor in Nigeria and other African Countries

          Encourage diversity and tolerance

          Assist elderly people to live with dignity

          Provide relief in emergency situations

          Shelter abandoned or abused animals

          Another cause you believe in

As founding member of an NGO you will decide how to run the organization. You will lay the groundwork for deciding what issues to address, what programs to run, and how to spend your funds.

When you start an NGO, you can directly help the people who need it. Your programs could change people’s lives and their futures.

You'll enjoy freedom from the rat race when you start an NGO. you'll use a new kind of measuring stick for your achievements: one that measures nairas and dollars raised, lives changed, and people helped.

As founder of an NGO, you may travel the world for your cause, meet with powerful business leaders, or people grateful for your help. For many founders of nonprofit organizations, having hands-on involvement and seeing the immediate results of their effort are great rewards and motivators.

NGO and Fundraising the real world strategies

The primary key to fund-raising success is to have a first-class organization in every sense. There are no entitlements in the nonprofit world. Successful fund-raising is not magic; it is simply hard work on the part of people who are thoroughly prepared.

Fund raising is simple in design and concept, but it is very hard work! It is planning, executing, and assessing. It is paying attention to detail. It is knowing your organization and what it needs. It is knowing who has the money, and how much they can give

You do not raise money by begging for it; you raise it by selling people on your organization. You can read my full article which was published in 5 national newspapers
