Do you want your story to reach an extended audience of grantors, foundations, executives and industry leaders? GrantNews.press encourages you, a nonprofit or small-business leader, to write the story that illustrates how your replicable program came to life (funding and all) and serves the greater good.
What are the advantages of guest blogging?
1. Enhance your grant application status.
Once your article is published on GrantNews.press, you can cite the publication in your grant applications to demonstrate that your organization and/or project has been recognized by a newspaper.
2. Share your successful, replicable idea with other organizations.
Support your fellow nonprofits and/or small businesses by allowing them to replicate your model program that attracts donations and contributors. “Charities and non-profits can extract important information from these findings that will help them serve their communities,” Dr. Cornwell says (Project Researcher, Artist).
3. Share the successes and efforts of your organization to retain current donors and attract potential donors.
Thank your funding source and individual contributors in a way that will encourage repetitive contributions and encourage new ones. Include quotes from your donors to communicate to others how their funding was the key to accomplishing your goals.
4. Use videos and photographs to inspire contributions.
The use of short videos or images may also inspire additional contributions and the replication of your program model. Visuals show current donors the power of their contributions, giving them the confidence and pride to continue their support, and inspire potential donors with the impact they could have.
5. Show off the face of your nonprofit to build a stronger bond with your community and raise more funds.
Personal impact has more influence on donating than ever before. Include yourself and the organization’s leader in your article and visuals. Contributors, volunteers, readers, supporters and potential future members of your nonprofit want to connect a face to your organization.
“Consumers are more likely to favor brands that incorporate faces into their visuals,” according to a recent study led by researchers from the University of Oregon and published online in the European Journal of Social Psychology.
