Topic: Non-Profit Administrative and Financial Management Tips

Ladon Brumfield, Girls Rule! Executive Director and non profit consultant discusses administrative and financial management best practices and pitfalls you’ll want to employ to avoid for planning a successful Silent Auction

Fundraising Ideas For Non-Profit Organizations: C…:

Recently, during a conversation about my full-time work with Girls Rule!, I was asked how volunteer Executive Directors who desire to work for their organizations full-time, may raise funds to cover their salaries.  While we discussed development of operational budges, fundraising strategies and program budgets, many were unfamiliar with capacity grants and the role they play in financially supporting various aspects of Executive Director level activities and job functions. 

Capacity Building Grants – Where/What Are They? 
You may find these funding opportunities by conducting topical grant searches for capacity building grants.  Capacity building grants are grants provided by foundations and other funders to support many Executive Director and staff responsibilities and tasks, such as:

Strategic Planning

Activities related to developing partnerships or collaboration with NPOs

Program development and research

Attending professional development and networking opportunities

Strategies to enhance the operations of your org

and so on…

When developing your organizational cost centers, a portion of your time would be charged against and paid for by these funds and therefore would support a part of your salary. 

Many organizations focus on grants designed to solely support their programs and sometimes overlook this important funding opportunity which goes a long way to supporting work designed to equip your organization to carry out its mission.

Hope this helps!

A new study on fathers’ involvement with their children reveals that Black men are more active in their child’s life than ever.

Out of the Black fathers who live with their children, 75 percent help with tasks like bathing and diapering, compared to 60 percent White and 45 percent Latino. The study, which involved 3,900 men between 2006 and 2010, also showed that 35 percent of Black fathers who lived with their young children said they read to them daily, compared to 30 percent of White dads and 22 precent of Latino dads.

In addition, the study found that Black fathers who lived outside of the house were at least as involved as other dads who didn’t live with their kids, or more so.

You can vote and check out other people’s point of view over on ESSENCE.com. What do you think? Do Black fathers get a bad rep? Is it that one bad apple spoiling the bunch thing?
