Get Help for a Nonprofit or Give Help to Nonprofits

Welcome all philanthropic organizations! We are a 100% volunteer run nonprofit that would like to cordially extend an invitation to our meeting about how Crowdsourcing & Crowdfunding projects can help you fulfill your organization’s mission!

“Tips for Using Crowdfunding for Your Nonprofit & an Intro to the Projects Available to Help You on”

Are you a community volunteer who wants to have a positive impact on your community? Would you like to help nonprofits get the resources they need to help them fulfill their mission? Would you like to be a project facilitator that helps nonprofits upload specific projects so they can get the help they need from their community?

Do you volunteer for a nonprofit organization that needs help with their funding? Would you be able to accomplish more of your nonprofit mission if you had more volunteers and more donations? Would your nonprofit like to receive help to get the word out about the projects you are working on and the materials, services and cash donations you need to successfully complete the projects?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then you are invited to a Free gathering held at :

Mesa Main Library on Saturday, November 7th from 3PM to 4:30PM. Optional Networking time is available afterwards along with help posting your own new project. Come meet like-minded people and get energized with new ideas! This is a hands on workshop. Please bring your computer so that you can learn as you go.

This meeting is open to any 100% volunteer run or mostly volunteer run philanthropic organization. This meeting is also open to any volunteers who would like to assist nonprofits in posting projects and/or help nonprofits secure the services, donations and money they need to successfully complete their projects. We help any philanthropic organization with a mission to solve a social or an environmental problem. It is not necessary to have a 501(c)3 nonprofit tax designation to receive our help. If your project solves a social or environmental problem, we are here to assist you!

Think of as a megaphone. You can utilize the features on this web platform to reach out to a brand new audience thereby amplifying whatever message you are trying to get out to our community! You can also access our community volunteers who act like your extra staff helping to find you the information & resources you need to fulfill your organization’s mission.

**************Please bring your laptop, if you have one.**************** Also, please bring your Crowdfunding questions or tips as well as a project that you are working on that our community volunteers may be able to assist you with. We will help you create your new project right away during this meeting! Are you hosting a fundraiser? Are you creating a new program? Do you need something built? Are you developing new classes or hosting a special event? Do you have a holiday project that needs services or donated materials in order for it to be successful? Our community volunteers who love using Social Media can help get the word out and assist you in getting volunteers & donated items you need to successfully complete your project!

If you cannot attend, please send one of your volunteers, colleagues or friends and we are happy to give the training to them!

Here are the topics we plan to cover:

1. We will have a presentation on tips for using Crowdfunding to help your organization raise needed funds. We will also have a brainstorming session and an exchange of tips. Please bring any helpful tips to share and/or examples of successful crowdfunding campaigns.

2. We will have a discussion about what nonprofits need in order to successfully complete a community project for their organization (specific types of volunteers, donated items, donated services, etc.) We will also discuss how our community volunteers, who are “Social Media Lovers for a Cause”, can help promote your project and get the word out about your needs.

3. We will introduce nonprofits to the various Free community projects on our web platform that may be able to help any nonprofit organization. All of your nonprofit projects posted on our site become our mission. Whatever you need to successfully complete your project becomes the “shopping list” for community volunteers to find for you! 🙂 Even better, the Donation Page on your project directly clicks over to the donation page on your own website! We do not even take any percentage of the money that you raise. Every cent you raise goes directly to your nonprofit!

4. We will introduce the different types of Community Projects available on Each allows you to reach a different audience and accomplish a different mission. Each one of the Community Projects on communicates to the community volunteers helping with our website. Each type of project sets in motion a different type of assistance for your organization.

All services offered on are offered by community volunteers and all services are completely Free to nonprofit organizations. If you wish, you will receive help creating your own project on our website so that we can get to work finding you what you need to make your project a success.

5. Finally, we will get a head count of how many people might be interested in attending a nonprofit conference, also Free, to learn new skills to help nonprofits. We also want to find out who might want to work together to help plan such a nonprofit conference. Here are the details:
