2017 DoingGood Foundation Recap

DoingGood in Colorado and Puerto Rico 2017

Colorado

2017 was a revival of our dedication to our small and local nonprofit community. With over 25,000 nonprofits in Colorado and over 80% of them being considered small, the DoingGood Foundation provided over 250 of them with educational and business-oriented training FREE of charge. Charities which took advantage of our programs and services ranged from animal organizations to veterans organizations.

Here is a video from an attendee which highlights exactly what we do for small and local nonprofits. Thank you to Chantae Thomas and for her video on Facebook (must be on Facebook to view)!

Here is a list of just a few of the nonprofits who took advantage of our programs and services this year:

Where Your Donations Will Go

Provide Outreach

In 2018, with your help, we look to expand our reach to over 500 small, Colorado-based 501c3’s.

Return of the Charity Advancement Committee

We also look to bring back one of our most beloved services for nonprofits, our Charity Advancement Committee. This “committee” is made up of volunteers from professional backgrounds including, but not limited to, marketing, accounting, operations, grant writing, social media, advertising, graphic design, strategic planning, public relations, and business management. This program, with funding provided by our memberships and other fundraisers, will also provide each nonprofit receiving this service with a grant to implement one or more of the recommendations of the committee. This program provides LITERALLY Tens of Thousands of dollars worth of consulting services FREE to ideally three 501c3 nonprofits in 2018. We will also share the resources from these reports in an online resource database for any 501c3 nonprofit to use FREE!


Puerto Rico/Disaster Relief

In 2017, the DoingGood Foundation was asked to be a fiscal partner with a group of veterans and others with ties to Puerto Rico. This group wanted to send teams to assist with the disaster relief efforts in Puerto Rico, including clearing debris from roads and public areas, tarping roofs, distribution of food and water as well as other supplies, and more. With our founder having experience in disaster management from Hurricane Katrina, Rita and Wilma, we agreed to be a fiscal sponsor.

As we engaged more with the disaster relief efforts, it was clear that the smaller 501c3’s and local churches engaged with the relief efforts were having more of an impact in the disaster area than larger nonprofits and governmental agencies. Since our slogan is “Empower those empowering our community”, it is clear that in a disaster we should be assisting small nonprofits on the ground in order to assist with providing individuals and families with relief in a disaster zone.

Our two teams provided services to over 1900 individuals, 900 of them students, who through our teams’ efforts, cleared the debris and provided roofing assistance. These efforts allowed the school to open and bring some normalcy back to the over 900 students, faculty and staff.

In 2018, we are looking to continue to provide relief for Puerto Rico and gear up to assist with any other natural disasters which may hit the United States in 2018. We will work with small and local nonprofits in the disaster areas in order to make sure that food and water and other supplies are getting to those who need it most.

If you would like to contribute to the recovery efforts in Puerto Rico for 2018, please DONATE NOW.

We will be providing expectant mothers with “birthing kits” which will include food, lighting, a small generator, birthing supplies, blankets and other supplies expectant mothers will need in order to be taken care of since there are still issues with transportation and power on the island. Kits will be about $750 each, on top of getting them distributed around the island will cost about $20,000 in transportation for supplies and volunteers.

How We Helped My Beloved Ministries

Ava Simmons and Adam McMahon at Doing Good Workshop

Ava Simmons and Adam McMahon at Doing Good Workshop

We interviewed Ava Simmons from My Beloved Ministries at our last educational workshop. Unfortunately, the sound wasn’t great. So here’s a transcription of the interview.

Adam: Who are you and briefly describe your nonprofit.

Ava: I am Ava Simons. The non-profit that I’m CEO of is My Beloved Ministries which is an employment agency, a food bank, and a boarding home. And most of the people who come there have been broken by the society and we try to rebuild the person to be productive in the society by helping him find a job or volunteer to enable them to continue to grow in their path.

Adam: How long would you say you have been with your organization?

Ava: I had my current position since December first. I volunteered as a clerical assistant for about a year. However, My Beloved Ministries has been in business since 1983.

Adam: What are some of the challenges you face in your nonprofit?

Ava: Challenges I personally face? One. I personally didn’t know much so I’m just trying to keep it running while she’s gone, but finding the resources to reach out and finding the funding because the food bank that we have, people can’t come to in. We have to deliver it and priming that gas and some place to help us maintain the cars and we we’re to replace the cars and as well as to— I had to learn how to reach out to businesses and contact them for the employment agency, finding resources for clothing and like shampoo, conditioner, stuff like that. It hasn’t really been that much of a challenge but how to help a person come up with their deposit money to their Apartment or even…

We had a family in just recently. They were homeless. The mother and two kids received $475 from TANF. They went homeless just this last new storm. They were really good friends, but between the two of them, they make $800 a month. The rent for that room is just $600. So they’ve been having a difficult time, because we’ve been trying to figure out how to help them, so that they can keep a roof over their head because they can’t afford child care. So they really can’t afford to go get a job.

And it’s been very— because there are such long waiting lists and just trying to find this work that would help them now! right now those two families or the two mothers and two kids are sharing the room and that in itself has been a struggle. They’re OK with it to keep a roof over their head and that way, each one of them pay $300 a month. They were friends when they came in, thats still growing, and one is able to go to work the other one watches the kids. But it’s very difficult because there are such long way for [unintelligible 03:32], even for the shelter, even for just looking for evidence. And that’s a big part of our struggle on the home, and it’s repaired and just thinking because everything is expensive.

Adam: Is there any product or service for nonprofits, you wish existed that doesn’t exist?

Ava: I don’t know how to answer that. I’m sure someone here is able to, I’ve been very appreciative to this program because it’s taught me a lot about what I do know, and it’s helped me just to be able to figure out how to manage.

Adam: What would you say you got out of today?

Ava: Today was really great because I am having to learn how to do the funding, the grant running, the marketing and she gave me some really good ideas. Am really getting resources to connect into, as well as other team members tuning me and giving me sites to go to, to consistently look at when I hit that road block. It gave me skills and tools of how to overcome the mountain before me. And I really think this program in itself is doing just to help everybody, in every way reach out so we can all share information.

Adam: Thank you very much.

Ava: Thank you.
