Questions to Ask Potential Nonprofit Partners
From the Billion + Change archives, a quick guide of questions to ask potential nonprofit partners when interested in creating a skills-based project.
- Do you have any projects or programs that support [COMPANY IMPACT AREA, such as education, environment, economic development health care, etc]?
- If yes, are there things that you have wanted to do but haven’t had the resources? For example, is there a population you haven’t been able to serve or a need you haven’t been able to meet? Another way to frame this question is as follows: If you had all the money you wanted or needed for your project or program, what would you do that you are not doing now?
- Do you have interest in supporting a program or project that supports [COMPANY IMPACT AREA]?
Are you currently working with any other organizations on this issue?
Would you be interested in collaborating with another organization to support this issue?
Have you worked with pro bono or skills-based volunteers in the past?
Do you have ideas for ways to engage [COMPANY NAME’S] employees in volunteer projects to support your mission?
Where would the site of the volunteer project be (City, State)? Could this be a remote project?
