#4: Partner with Existing Organizations.
It has been said that the world does not need additional non-profit organizations and resources should be spent on existing charities. While the veracity of this statement can be debated, there is something to be said for partnering with existing organizations. By collaborating with organizations with shared or similar goals, visions and missions, and sharing your strengths, a lot more can be accomplished.
Do you know that Azariah Foundation currently partners with Bethesda Agency, as we share similar values and visions? Kola and Nike also partner with other existing organizations. Read their stories below:
I decided to partner with the Global Orphan Project because their mission resonated with me on a level that was deeper than any other Orphan-facing non-profit. Together, we don't do handouts. We create jobs and provide dignity.
Bethesda Child Support Agency shares my dream of educating orphans and at-risk children, hence a partnership was a no-brainer. By partnering to take more children off the streets, together we can change the world, one child at a time
