Being Part of the Puzzle for Successful Non-Profits

Being Part of the Puzzle for Non-Profits

Non-profits are a critical part of our society and the communities we live in.  They each have different goals or missions.  Some focus on helping the needy, funding good causes or support education of our youth.  But for a non-profit to be successful they need to have the “correct” people involved, that play an integral role in the puzzle that makes up a successful non-profit.

Usually a non-profit is managed by an Executive Director who reports to a Board of Directors.  They have paid staff to run the day-to-day tasks and a volunteer support network to help with fundraising and awareness events.

So how does a Virtual Assistant play an integral role in the success of non-profits?  Virtual Assistants are not employees, so they do not need to become part of your headcount.  They don’t need any employee benefits, vacation or sick time.  VA’s are experienced professionals that can fill a very specific need for a non-profit.  They can be a Project Manager, or assist with a non-profits marketing initiatives.  The nice thing about a Virtual Assistant is that you only pay for the hours worked.  So for example, let’s say you have an awareness campaign that you need someone to oversee for 6 months.  You can hire a Virtual Assistant to manage that goal without having to “hire” a new employee, you just hire a consultant.  So when that work is complete you do not need to continue paying someone unless you have another project for them to handle. 

Therefore Virtual Assistants can be apart of that puzzle that makes up a successful non-profit organization, without having to worry about added costs.  Non-profits also have the ability to apply for grants that can cover the cost of a Virtual Assistant or Project Manager.
