improv provides consulting for your charitable organization
Help optimize the performance of your charity with THEY improv
Top companies around the country have been looking to THEY improv to help solve their problems. From improved communication among employees and volunteers to better handling of donations and benefactors, THEY improv has a variety of programs that can help you find ways to improve the prospects of your organization. And with the economy the way it is, the first thing hit is the discretionary income represented by the money people would normally provide to charities.
PUTTING THE FUN IN FUNDRAISING
Fundraising in a poor economy is not easy. You are competing for fewer and fewer potential donations. This means that you have to approach the situation with a fresh perspective to find the donations you are looking for. THEY improv can help your 501(c)(3) non-profit organization raise money, improve benefactor relations and improve organizational efficiency in a variety of ways.
1) Comedic Fundraisers. From murder mystery dinners to comedy shows and game shows, THEY improv can custom design an evening of entertainment that will not only provide audiences a sense of money well spent, but can also show the organization in a favorable light and even assist in silent or other auctions and give-aways. After all, our goal is the same as yours, to make your organization money. We offer special rates for charities, so if you aren't going to make money, the whole project isn't worth pursuing for our organization.
2) Improved Donor Communication Skills. A large portion of fundraising is the creation of a feeling of intimacy between your benefactors and your organization. The more that people feel a personal investment in the prospects of the charity, the more they are willing to give. Likewise, larger benefactors need to feel appreciated by the organization or they'll take their donations to a different organization. A communication workshop can help to improve the ability of your workers and volunteers to better relate the feelings the you want the donors to have. Here are a few testimonials from just a handful of our happy charitable organizations.
3) Enhanced Employee Communication. Charities often rely on what we refer to as beneficial employees. A beneficial employee is someone who gets paid for their effort but would likely have a better living working in another industry. They remain with the organization due to wanting to help and for their own personal stake they have in the organization and how it makes them feel about their own contribution to society. That being said, some such employees resent others telling them what to do and some may even create their own little area that is under their control with outside interference being resisted. This can lead to different parts of a charitable group working against each other and to a lot of bitterness under the surface. At its worst, sometimes various employees purposely try to drive others away from the charity who do not subscribe to their vision.
An Enhanced Employee Communication workshop will help your 501(c)(3) non-profit organization's employees to see each other as individuals instead of job titles and to reduce the suspicion that ome may have towards one another. Likewise, efficiencies may be found in the organization and problems that have been boiling below the surface can be resolved before they come to a head. Contact our director with your specific issues or concerns and THEY improv can develop a specific program for your needs.
4) Group Dynamic Team Building Workshops. Simply put, a team that works together accomplishes more. We have a variety of approaches that will allow the members of your organization to learn about each other, work together more efficiently and to improve employee morale. This is especially vital to charitable organizations as they rely so heavily on the good graces of their volunteers and the willingness of their employees to work below market wages.
THEY improv is happy to help 501(c)(3) non-profit charities nationwide. Whether you are in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Texas or anwhere in-between, THEY improv is happy to help you achieve the success your cause requires.
