What sets a nonprofit apart?
That’s the question we set out to answer while working on the Award-Winning Nonprofits Kit. Being able to shine a spotlight on all the great work your nonprofit is doing and dig in on the impact you’re having plays a major part in the awards decision-making process. With so many applicants, being able to set yourself apart can mean the difference between your organization getting a grant to do more of the great work you’re doing and not gaining that additional funding.
Learn from three award-winning nonprofits in our award-winning nonprofit kit! Read about how the STAR Project gained almost half a million dollars in new funding — money that will fund the nonprofit for three years. We spoke with Executive Director Becky Turner about what set the STAR Project apart. Their commitment to data and implementation of Apricot helped put them in the position to earn funding. That commitment set them apart and continues to propel them forward.
Award-winning nonprofits often find that implementing a case management solution helps set them apart. That commitment to data and community, mirrored by Impact Award winner Deaconess Nurse Ministry, helped them find a solution that worked. Deaconess Nurse Ministry now has access to data anywhere their nurses meet clients. Thanks to Apricot, they can prove their impact and set themselves apart when committees look for organizations to support.
CitySquare, part of our award-winning nonprofits kit, has also found that their commitment to data has helped prove their impact. Across 22 separate programs, being able to tell an organization-wide story with data, seemed like a massive undertaking. Using ETO, they’ve been able to tell the stories of their neighbors (the term the organization uses for their participants) in a more cohesive way, setting them ahead of the pack.
