 Empowering Those Empowering Our Communities!

Did you know there are over 30,000 nonprofits in Colorado and over 80% of them are considered small?

DGFlogo2017wSloganWe provide a lot of resources to startup communities in the U.S. But what about our small older and upcoming nonprofits?

We believe that by providing resources to these smaller nonprofits, we can improve their ability to empower more people in our community to meet community need. Our Philosophy:

“Give a man a fish, feed him for a day; Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime”

 

 

The Doing Good Foundation lives this proverb. Money can fix many issues, but what if that money was being used to further inefficient and ineffective ways? Many nonprofits are formed out of passion for a cause, and thus business and organizational sustainability are sometimes, not always, a challenge for many smaller nonprofits. What if we could help these nonprofits find the resources they need and teach them how to use tools and services provided to many of them free or low-cost,  be more effective and efficient

What if we could help these nonprofits find the resources they need and teach them how to use tools and services provided to many of them free or low-cost, to be more effective, efficient and sustainable organizations?

What if we taught them how to be better businesses? Would that help more animals, children, homeless, hungry, and others?

We think so.

Programs and Services

The Doing Good Foundation provides two programs FREE to small and local 501(c)(3) charities:

  • Educational Series for Small Nonprofits (ESSN) – Monthly FREE trainings, held on the final Friday of each month, covering topics from accounting to volunteer management
  • DoingGood Week (formerly Denver Gives Week) – Mirroring DenverStartup Week for the startup community, DoingGood Week provides a week-long FREE conference designed to provide small and local nonprofits the information, training, education and resources they need to become a more effective, efficient and sustainable organization thus allowing them to provide more programs and services to help them meet our communities needs!
  • Charity Advancement Committee (tentative) – For 2017-2018, we will be looking to our young professionals group to see if there is a group of volunteers (8-14 experts in various areas of business (for-profit and non-profit business)) who would like to participate in our Charity Advancement Committee which provides consulting for one small nonprofit each committee term, which is three months long and provides analysis of opportunities and challenges the organization has in the young professionals field of expertise, makes recommendations on what they could do better and provide a list of resources they could use to implement the recommendations.
