Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Expected threats to natural disaster victim donations:
Out of country natural disasters are much harder to get donations for than local disasters. Americans are more willing to help Americans.
The BGC may not be able to prove where the donations go- many other foundations have been exposed by the media as not using any of the donations for their intended cause- Americans are on the alert and may be extremely cautious about giving donations.
If the BGC is not in good repor with the media and the general public, then getting any type of donations will be difficult.
The BGC may not have enough time and money to commit to multiple natural disaster aide projects. If stretched too thin, not enough money will go to the right places and people.
Suggestions to help:
Videos and images showing the natural disasters and how each donation can help- with a detailed chart explaining what percentage of donations goes to each component of the project.
Media involvement to help promote the good intentions of the BGC will help refocus the general public's attention onto the need for donations for BGC's cause.
An organized business plan will help focus the BGC's efforts in tackling one natural disaster aide project at a time.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
I should have been more specific. The BGS is locally funded. The entire question is below. I am just having trouble coming up with threats. I can write the paper after I have an idea of what to write.
The Boys and
Girls Club (BGC) is a national non-profit organization geared to provide
America's youth with the tools and skills they need to become healthy adults,
responsible citizens, and effective leaders. By bringing parents, neighbors,
educators, and civic leaders together with our youth, the BGC believes it can
instill these crucial life lessons at an age when they are most needed. The
national organization is headquartered in Atlanta, GA, and it serves as a
service hub for over 3,700 club locations around the U.S. Each local club is
directed by a volunteer board of directors and staffed by professional youth
development workers (usually including an executive director, a program
director, and an arts director) and many volunteers who just enjoy working with
young people and making a difference in their lives. Although the organization
is affiliated with the national center, each local BGC is locally funded.
Keeping in mind the importance of the various facets of the general environment to the BGC, discuss the threat to donations caused by the organization's focus on the victims of natural disasters and how the BGC might respond to this and other threats to donations.
I see. Well as a locally funded organization, it would be very difficult to convince the community to fund out of city relief to natural disaster victims because most community members are under the impression that the BGC is to help the boys and girls INSIDE the community. How can they get donations for something that doesn't directly affect the BGC's goal as an organization?
Being stretched too thin is also still a big threat to donations. "Natural Disaster relief to victims" is an extremely broad community service goal. Are we talking about all of the forest fires in the northern united states that have burned down several homes? Or the floods/earthquakes that have killed hundreds over seas? If the community doesn't know WHAT to donate to, they will not donate.
Lastly, organization. How will a small local organization be able to support Natural Disaster Victims thousands of miles away? Will they have the money to fund food and money delivery to these victims? How will volunteers travel to these natural disaster areas to provide aide?
Possible solutions- a clear concise reasoning for their intentions, a business plan to help the BGC be able to fund such a project, and a more specific project that focuses on one natural disaster problem at a time.
