How we can help

The surplus that arises out of the revenues is used to further achieve its ultimate objective and not to distribute its income to the organization’s shareholders/leaders/members.
NPO’s are known for their accountability, honesty, and commitment to their staff and to their cause. Public confidence in the NPO is a factor in the amount of money that a nonprofit organization is able to raise. When an NPO focuses on its mission, it will command public confidence and will increase revenues.

Not for profit pitch writing
At The Tender Team we can also help you write a professional pitch for your NPO. The following five points are crucial:
- Context: Set the scene for your audience even if they already know this. You need to train their brain early.
- Issue – Explain what the problem is: Explain the “broken” sector of the community. Tell people what the issue is in a detailed way before you tell them “how” you’re going to solve it. This may be obvious but a lot of speakers jump into the “solution” too quickly.
- Solution: Keep the chat about ‘The Solution’ quick and specific. Avoid any non-profit “buzzwords” that people aren’t going to understand. You have to be careful in using Technical jargon and industry-specific keywords.
- Impact – How will what you do change the world: Will your idea make a difference out there? Which types of people will feel the impact the most?
- How much are you going to raise: You must be clear on how much you want to raise. Also, what are you going to spend it on. Provide the audience with your main expenditure elements.
