Hand in Hand: a Benefit for Hurricane Relief

Posted by Ethan Kotel on Sep 13, 2017 10:47:53 AM

Teaming Up to Help Our Neighbors

It's impossible to predict a natural disaster, and almost as hard to truly prepare for one. What really matters in a natural disaster isn't how prepared a city is before it hits, but the generosity of our nation in the aftermath.

Hurricane Harvey Relief

Help Us Support Communities Affected by Harvey

mGive-hurricane-harvey-relief.png

Hurricane Harvey is a truly unprecedented weather event. It came with force, delivering sustained 100 mph winds, spitting off tornados, and dumping record-breaking torrents on Houston, our nation's fourth largest city.

 

Citizens have been doing the best they can to survive and adjust in the wake of the storm; however, many are still cut off from basic supplies - food, water, and electricity - and many more have found themselves suddenly and unexpectedly homeless, displaced, often with animals and children in tow.

 

We are so proud and so honored to be able to provide fundraising support to several organizations who are working hard, day in and day out, to provide relief to those affected by this storm.

 

From providing short term supplies, shelter, and search and rescue, to more long term efforts centered around re-homing and reacclimating to a life post-tragedy, our nonprofit partners are doing incredible and selfless work as we speak. Read on for more details on our partners helping in the Gulf.

Where Is The Next Wave of Supporters and How Can Nonprofits Engage Them? Part 1 of 2

Posted by Grant Flores on Apr 13, 2015 1:38:00 PM

ThinkstockPhotos-168710691-1
Let me start by saying I’m your typical Millennial. Let me also say that I absolutely love nonprofits.  Really.  I talk with them every single day and these are people who don’t just donate money, or a day or two of their time a year.  They dedicate their whole life to helping others.  They’re hard working people who care deeply.  They know every dollar counts; and executive directors and board members have to justify how those dollars are spent.  It’s not easy.  I don’t envy their job, but I sure do respect them for it. I’m 35 – and so technically I’m between a Millennial and a Generation X’er.  I have traits of both however I think I lean slightly more Millennial than Xer.  I use social media, text, and am more connected than ever before.  But, I also remember a time when I wasn’t staring at my phone like I want to dive into it.  I’ve even put myself in Facebook timeout before.
