Week 5 Shayley Narges

I am learning how to evaluate a nonprofit organization and how to see if an organization is worth the time and money. I think it’s better to go with quality because then you see how a organization works and see just how much it really impacts the community.

I am finding it it easier to evaluate nonprofit organizations because using the guide helps you. Also it is good because then I can see the quality of the organization.

Shayley week 4

I learned that the shining stars have very good program ratio and management ratio. The fundraising ratio, cost to raise $1 and Sustainability are not very good, but they are pretty new organization. It is important to look at the numbers because you want to know where your money is going for the organization. I learned that my money will go to a good cause for good things not to pay employees. Also that the sustainability is not very good but I have trust in this local organization.

Shayley Week 3

Our purpose statement is to help kids in need. To fundraiser for this we will be selling dirt cups at school. With what we are doing I have experienced very good things, this is because I think what we are doing will be helpful to the kids and will feel very good in the end. I reached out to the shining stars dance program, I first called and there was no answer or call back. So I emailed her and have not yet received a response back. I think that the shining stars program will be grateful and very easy to work with. I am very excited to keep moving further with this project and learn more about this program.

Week 2

I learned a lot about the paper bag activity. About myself I learned how sentimental somethings really are and how special my family is. I learned things I did not know prior about my classmates.

My team will make dirt cups to make for the fund raiser, also we are considering doing a miracle minute. We are planning on doing it at school.

I told my parents about main street philanthropy and they said it was a cool idea, and they said they would donate some starter money if needed. I also told my sister and she said that it is a really good thing to be involved in and she would help if needed.

1.) my experience with the MAD cards were good because I did not know there were so many things you could help with. I learned that I care a lot about families and kids. I learned my partner and I have similar interests. I hope to gain the sanctification of self and to help people and make a difference.
