Non-Profit Management Panelist Quotes

“The hope that our clients experience. Most of them are homeless and all of them are nearly destitute. It means the world to them that someone cares enough to offer them a meal and actually talk to them. We can’t give them a lot of hope, but it seems to be enough to get them through today.”

“That we help to change the world, one cat at a time 🙂 As a person that can’t work a ‘proper job’ and is on disability, it gives my life purpose.”

“For me the money we raise goes to help homeless teenagers, and at risk youth. Seeing the looks on the faces of those we help.”

“I get to give back to the community that gave back to me and it feels great to have had such an opportunity I would also like to share what the organization has done for me and push it towards others.”

This audience is made up of participants who hold job titles and roles in the non-profit management industry. Each of these professionals can be targeted individually, or roles can be combined to create larger audiences.

  • Development director – frequently collaborates closely with grant writers. Their primary responsibility is to complete funding applications and donation claims. They will be able to get the necessary funds for their annual financial goals this way. These positions would normally fall under the marketing/public relations area in a typical corporate career.
  • Director of philanthropy – oversees all charitable giving for the company. This position assists in carrying out the mission statement and guiding the organization toward its altruistic objectives. Budgeting, nurturing contributors, devising outreach methods, and other fundraising operations are all responsibilities of the nonprofit director of philanthropy.
  • Volunteer director – the many moving pieces of a volunteer force are managed by a volunteer coordinator, whose responsibilities include hiring, recruiting, placing, managing, and training volunteers.
  • Member services representative – answering and directing phone calls, aiding with membership-related issues, addressing complaints, and processing transactions are all responsibilities of the member service representative. Customer service skills and a desire to work with people are required for success in this role.
  • Communications manager – collaborates closely with internal teams to create emails, social media, and increase interest in the firm.
