Mission-focused: Combining Efforts to Build a Stronger Community
It’s always a great day when you find the cause you’re passionate about. Something that gets you fired up and wanting to make an impact in the community. Taking the initiative to actively work to improve that situation is even better.
More than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations are registered in the U.S., from public charities to private foundations (National Center for Charitable Statistics).
There are millions of nonprofit organizations in the world, all supporting various causes and working to improve situations, much like the cause you have in mind. Instead of starting your own nonprofit, though, it can be much more beneficial to find an organization supporting your cause, and fundraising, raising awareness and improving the situation alongside them.
About 62.6 million Americans age 16 and older volunteered through or for a nonprofit organization from September 2014 to September 2015, which is equivalent to 52 hours annually per person on average (Bureau of Labor Statistics).
When we combine our efforts as a community, imagine the bigger impact we can make! Not only would we be making fewer yet stronger organizations instead of more, weaker organizations, but we would also be able to combine efforts from volunteers as the competition between nonprofits fighting for the same causes begins to decrease. Supporting this cause is why Raising Help and the Good Dog Fund exist: to improve the lives of children and families in need by supporting nonprofit organizations, helping do-gooders do more good in the community.

After all, a stronger community is a better community.
