With millions of Non-Profits out there, what makes WE IMPACT different and worthy of you donating your hard earned money to it?
While there are probably several reasons why you may consider WE IMPACT worthy of your donation, we are listing few of them below:
- WE IMPACT is registered with IRS as a 501c(3) Non-Profit. This is typically the first check which most people do and it makes us one of the 1.6 million genuine Non-profits registered in US
- Most charities which fall under point 1 are then evaluated by the likes of Charity Navigator or Charitywatch etc on financial metrics, accountability, and transparency. Typically, Charities which use over 70% of their donations/grants etc on ‘Programs’ are classified as Category ‘A’ charity rating. If the spend on programs is higher than 80%, these charity may get categorized as ‘A+’ charity rating. WE IMPACT pushes this higher. Even in our early days, we have controlled our spendings and have majorly focused on Program based spendings only. We push for even our Events or Charity Gala tab to be picked up by a donor and fight hard to keep the cost minimal. Our internal targets are to keep our Program spending as high as 85% of the total donations/grants we receive
- WE IMPACT’s Board of Directors are independent of each other (i.e. not related to each other) and we do not have a single employee who is paid a salary out of the Donations/Grants that are being raised. It’s a 100% volunteer led and volunteer run organization. This allows us a total transparency in operations and spending. Our Organization structure is published for the General Public to review unlike many of the top charitable organizations out there which may be maintaining an ‘A’ rating
- We fight harder for every dollar. Every dollar we spend, WE IMPACT team evaluates pros & cons of multiple options before opting for one. We spend a lot more time on evaluation and research as we know its somebody’s hard earned money we are spending. You may find a top rated Non-profit out there but what the books won’t tell you is their spending habits. Is just spending over 80% on projects/programs enough? Or do these organizations really try to extract the biggest bang for the buck? Most don’t! They will spend money for a higher level of convenience.
