Other ways to help
One of the organization’s biggest fundraisers, an annual golf tournament, is being planned for Sept. 19 at the Country Club of the North. “”It’s been a tough but interesting time to be a part of a nonprofit,” says Stephen Smith, financial manager at Good Neighbor House. “We are seeing a drop in the number of sponsors who might have been willing to donate to our event before the financial world became a bit questionable to navigate. This has been a challenge to everyone in our community, but it also creates a better understanding of what our client base may have been facing for years.”
If you are interested in helping GNH by showcasing your company with a sponsorship for their Annual Golf Tournament, please contact development specialist, Ryan Todd at 937-224-3003, Ext: 116 or Smith at 937-224-3003, Ext: 104. Check out the Good Neighbor House Facebook page or the website at Goodneighborhouse.org for further information.
Does your organization need office supplies?
A reader who is downsizing has a number of office supplies she would like to donate to a worthy cause. “I have printer paper, notebooks, folders, binders and an HP LaserJet 100 printer,” she says. “It’s a color laser, but the scanner is not working.”
If your nonprofit could use these items, please let me know and I’ll pass your interest along to our reader.
