As we watch the aftermath of Hurricane Florence unfold we must realize that when disaster strikes as a nonprofit leader you need to be prepared.
While planning to help provide food, shelter and other aid you must have a campaign ready to focus on those much needed services.
Try launching a campaign page on social media. This will be a critical piece to provide updates on how support is progressing and how needs might change.
Communication is key, make sure to be clear on the area of the community your organization will be serving and what impact you will make.
Also, look to raise unrestricted gifts so that other services the contribute to the disaster can be covered.
Be sure to give a final update of the campaign so that your donors know where their gifts made the most impact.
No one wants a disaster to occur but when they do having some basic tools in place will make the difference.
Mission focused. Vision driven.
