Fund Raising Resources for Tutor/Mentor Programs

INDEPENDENT SECTOR Endorses General Operating Support Grants as a preferred Funding Mechanism(Washington, DC, April 8, 2004)- INDEPENDENT SECTOR has endorsed recommendations from a group of nonprofit and philanthropic leaders that encourage foundations to give general operating support grants in order to provide the most flexible funding to their nonprofit partners.

Note:

If we can teach charities and donors to choose a cause and find an information portal, such as this, that shows the long-term work needed for a tutor/mentor program to help a youth to a career, then we can teach the donor to pick a charity based on where the need is greatest (map) and what organization is providing service in that zip code (Program Locator). once a donor gets to the few tutor/mentor program choices that exist in a zip code, it is up to the donor to determine how much he/wants to help, then write a check and send it to the organization. If an organization maintains a web site that shows why they are needed, where they are needed, where they operate and what services they provide, the donor should be able to choose between multiple organizations providing the same service in the same neighborhood. If your tutor/mentor program has a web site, you can put its link in the LINKS section of this web site. You can also email tutormentor2@earthlink.net to add it to the Program Locator database.

ANNUAL CALENDAR
By nsbyrer @ 04:18 p. m. :: 3039 Views :: Article Rating
Since it was launched in January 1994, the T/MC has developed a calendar of events and a media plan to promote the need for tutoring and mentoring in poverty neighborhoods throughout Chicago. Each event o­n this calendar provides direct support to hundreds of tutor/mentor programs, and builds public awareness for every tutor/mentor program in the Chicago region. Furthermore, each event builds momentum and participation of tutor/mentor program partners to the next event

Note: Programs that have a steady source of flexible revenue can use this process to constantly improve the impact they have o­n youth and adults. Very few programs have such a source of revenue, which is why the T/MC invites programs to work together to innovate new ways to draw funds to all volunteer based tutor/mentor programs, rather than just a few.
