Free Consultation w/Jill Morris
So, God has given you a vision, you know it's your purpose, but unsure of how to create the strategy to develop it into an impactful,
fully-funded NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION.
As a purposepreneur, I am on a personal mission to impact the world by helping individuals like you build nonprofits.
Let's take 15 minutes to chat,
so that I can help lead you in the right direction!!
In 2014, Pamela Sealy, Co-Founder of Ru'Day Helping Hands, was referred to me to help her and her mom start a nonprofit. They knew exactly what they wanted to do, but was unsure of how to get started, manage it, and attract support. Both mom and daughter were eager to help the homeless in Montgomery County, MD. The challenge was that they had recently relocated the Maryland from New York and were not familiar with the area. I assured them that I could help.
We got started immediately.
First order of business.......RESEARCH THE AREA!!!
As they suspected, homelessness and poverty were on the rise in Montgomery County. Knowing this, they had good leverage to build a lucrative nonprofit.
For six weeks, we had one-on-one consultations in which I provided them with my PROVEN strategies in building a lucrative nonprofit with the capacity to grow. I held their hands as they implemented tasks week-by-week. They started their nonprofit with one (1) program, a cookout for the homeless, which landed them coverage on Fox 5 News. From there, they added programs as the needs were identified.
The founders of Ru'Day thank me often for helping them build their nonprofit---a dream and a legacy for their family. At times, they said they felt personally challenged and pushed out of their comfort zones, but said it was what they needed to birth their vision.
Today, Ru'Day Helping Hands is a pillar in the community serving the homeless population. The program has grown from their anticipated annual cookout for the homeless, to food trucks, a hygiene distribution program, and a clothing drive program. Pamela Sealy and her mom are savvy servant leaders who are making an impact in Maryland.
