Celebrate National Nonprofit Day

Celebrate National Nonprofit Day

Today is National Nonprofit Day; let’s do our best to get involved!

National Nonprofit Day was first established as a way to encourage people to learn about and become involved with the various good works of nonprofit organizations.  On this day, we invite you to make it a priority to recognize and commend nonprofits for their efforts to serve our communities, the nation, and even the world.  Here are some suggestions to consider to get involved on National Nonprofit Day.

Choose

What is of most interest to each of us?  Some may feel compelled to offer assistance with animals, children, homeless, veterans, or the elderly for example.

Verify

We’d like to suggest that the organizations under consideration are vetted by others.  Our favorite resource is www.charitynavigator.org.  Their tag is, “Your guides to intelligent giving.”  There are other independent entities that do this as well, but this is my personal favorite.

Volunteer

Perhaps the most obvious way to honor this holiday is by volunteering with a nonprofit organization that supports a cause that we care about.  By reaching out and contacting a local nonprofit, we can offer our time and efforts to a worthwhile organization.  On this day, it may be a wonderful way to involve others so why not encourage our loved ones to get involved and start volunteering as well?  Not only can we feel good knowing that we are giving back, but we can also rest assured knowing that out efforts helped contribute to the continuation of the nonprofit that we worked with.

Donate

For those of us who cannot volunteer, there are other ways that we can support the good work of nonprofit organizations.  By donating, we can help these important charity organizations stay afloat.  For instance, donating money will help the organization meet their various financial obligations.  We can also donate goods and supplies that the organization needs to carry out their work.  As most nonprofits have a donation page on their organization’s website, it’s advisable to check it out to determine exactly what we can give to help out, according to their constraints.

These are some of the easy ways that we can get involved in National Nonprofit Day.  We at The Maria Sanchez Show hope you will join us as we make an effort to give back today.  Don’t forget to check out our latest program, Shadow Politics with Senator Michael D. Brown.  Tune in on Sundays at 4:00 p.m. PDT/7:00 p.m. EDT.
