You will need to make sure the promises are kept to the donors. Otherwise, you could lose some of the funding needed. Most likely the budget will increase in the second year and so forth; this may require seeking additional donations and grants to help keep the organization afloat and running. If receiving funding from private sources, you will need to ensure them that their money is being well spent. You can run into problems if the donors do not feel their money is going into the right places, therefore causing them withdraw their money, leaving the organization with less money to work with. Thus causing the director to find funding somewhere else. This can also affect the amount of staffing and the number of students it may be able to help. This being said; it can cause staff to lose their jobs and the students to lose their opportunity to further their education and better their lives overall. For a more positive outlook; if the funding is coming in on a regular basis, this can give room for expansions, and provide more jobs to people in the community.
Community Environmental Factors
There can be many community environmental factors. One can be the competition of another organization that offer the same or like services. One thing to do to ensure people will come to your organization, would be to offer some kind of incentive to join and bring in more people. The director during the developmental process should research the local community and what services may already be available, and see what needs to be offered more for the kids/students of the community. Once this has been done, a determination of what services are not available, and then include them into the organization to help draw people to the organization. Another thing to do would be to educate the community and also advertise the services being offered by the organization. With education, brings knowledge, and this will help to bring in more students. And with advertising you’re getting the name and the services being offered out further. This can help bring in more students as well. Without advertising, how will you get the word out quickly of the services being offered? Also it could be that without advertising not as many people may not know about the organization, and it could go under before even getting started and possible pull out by donators.
The organization financially should seek most of its funding from grants, the community, or even private donations. This way they can provide the community with the services they need the most. Once the organization knows what services they need to provide, they will need to add this to the budget, and to see if it is going to be affordable and most beneficial for the students. If they determine there will not be enough money in the budget to offer the services needed, they might think about minimalizing the services in the first year, then wait to see if more funding comes in for the next year. If this occurs, then add...
