As you may be aware, money donated to the HOPE Foundation is generously given by individual donors, local businesses, large corporations and grants. Without the gift of funds, we would not be able to accomplish our mission of helping everyone afford quality counseling of their choice. When considering giving - or continuing to give, some donors want to know that their funds are being put to good use. How do we show them what they need while still maintaining the integrity of our recipients who are trusting us to help them in their journey to a happier and healthier life?
Unfortunately, many non-profit organizations that help fund Mental Health causes often struggle with receiving the critical funding needed from donors and grants because it can be difficult to find tangible statistics showing the benchmarks that counseling, therapy, and mental health programs achieve. Nonprofits that help with disaster relief or providing food and medication have the benefits of statistics on their side.
While WE ALL know the importance of quality mental health, many of the benefits of good mental health are things that we FEEL, but others can’t always see.
Then there is the stigma. While mental health awareness is gaining ground, we are still understandably hesitant to be open about our mental health. We don’t want to tell our friends, family, and colleagues about this vulnerable area of our lives. This lack of openness coupled with the lack of statistics make it nearly impossible to achieve recurring funding from top donors and grants.
And finally, even if we had statistics, personal stories are more effective than bare numbers in communicating the power of our work: healthy people unleashed to fulfill their potential.
This is where you can help.
From something as simple as an anonymous testimonial all the way to being willing to participate in a video advertisement or even attending a HOPE event as a recipient, YOU could help us bring in those top donors which would provide even MORE financial help to those in need.
This is completely voluntary. You will not be compensated monetarily, and this will have no impact on your application.
*The approval committee will NOT know if you are willing to participate. Your decision will have ABSOLUTELY NO IMPACT on the decisions of the committee regarding your application.*
