Charting Impact

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

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

To receive enough monthly income every month to replace any funds used . To successfully apply for grant money. To hold profitable fundraisers several times a year. To increase followers that provide monthly incomes. To involve school children to fundraise for our cause. To be solvent at the end of the first year and move forward with funds saved. To reach as many families in need as we can.

Grow our monthly revenue by means of social media, contests and auctions. Make successful grant letters by attending webinars that teach how to apply successfully for grants. To integrate our business cards and magnets at events. Involving school children to fundraise for us.
To development contests for large donations. Seeking Corporate sponsorship. Use of our Ebay site for Auctions, our Facebook group for auctions, our Facebook page to keep supporters there abreast and to solicit additional support, and the use of radio to get our message to a broader audience. Submission of articles to local newspapers to get donations and name recognition. Using iGive, Go Fund me, GoodSearch, Good Shop, and AmazonSmile. The use of our Pay It Forward program in which recipients ask 10 friends and family to donate $10 each in the recipient's dog's name. We will use social media heavily to not only share the dogs that are helped but to reach out to seek those who are in need.

Prior to launching our site, we raised 3000.00 on our own from the above strategies. We are capable of writing grants as directed. We are capable of sustaining ourselves and staying solvent with the help of Corporate sponsorship and grants. We are capable of meeting the fund expenses from our own pockets making sure the monies raised for the dogs goes to the dogs. We are the only fund aimed at helping families with dogs who have Cushing's.

Surviving the first year as a nonprofit and never having to run anyone away due to lack of funds. Receiving grant money of at least $10,000. Tracking where we are making the most impact on people who are donating will tell us how and if we have expanded our audience. To increase our corporate sponsors and have a steady income from them and if we are able to keep the as sponsors we are growing.

Will easily be seen by increase in followers, donations, audience, and dollar amount we are able to raise at fundraisers. To see what fundraisers are profitable and ones that are not will help us move forward. To work smart and use the strategies that make money for our fund and abandon the ones that do not will help us progress further in making more money. To show an increase in corporate sponsors and hold onto them. We believe as we are able to show the dogs that are aided, more donors will step up. The more donors we can secure, the more dogs and families we can help.
