Why We Do What We Do
Our world is rich with resources and yet so many people are suffering. Imagine a day when everyday tragedies are resolved. When all people have clean food and water and safe homes to live and play. A world where safety nets catch us when we are struggling. A world that nurtures the human spirit and encourages us to realize our full potential.
It is largely the nonprofit sector shouldering the burden to resolve societies most pressing concerns. Nonprofits are where Americans come together to solve problems, nonprofits are promoters of civic engagement, and nonprofits are struggling to advance solutions on the issues we care about most.
Nonprofit leaders and their organizations face obstacles unique to traditional business with the biggest resulting from the stigma surrounding “overhead” expense. Studies have found the persistent lack of investment in overhead (staff training, technology, performance evaluation, systems) has stripped away the charities ability to achieve societal impact. All this lack of capacity contributes to turnover of staff, poor donor retention, persistent misconceptions about fundraising and tragically, the limited ability to resolve concerns of the world.
At Fordable Fundraising we are building nonprofit capacity and empowering nonprofit leaders to achieve greater mission impact.
Fordable Fundraising was founded in 2014 by fundraising expert Janeal Ford. Ford had a lengthy and successful career in nonprofit fundraising having worked and volunteered with several organizations. Looking for growth and advancement, she founded the company as Fordable Freelance when she took her first client, Culture Shock, San Diego. In March 2018, the company was incorporated as Fordable Fundraising.
There are 1.3 million nonprofits across the United States with 88% operating with less than $500,000 in income annually.
Most are severely under resourced with 50% operating with less than one month of cash reserves.
