Kansas Nonprofit Centre started 2020 on a high point. By March we were in a different world – Shutdown. We were in a place that no-one has ever been in. All businesses/organizations across the U.S. were shut down because of a pandemic disease called COVID.
Looking back, it was good and difficult for the Kansas Nonprofit Centre.
- We had to shut down all Education classes.
Our members would not spend money because they did not know were the money would be coming from.
- We could not visit organizations.
Because everything was shut down and not allowing anyone in their buildings even if they were even there.
The Good to Great:
- Our board of Directors decided to help Kansas nonprofits by lowing “new members investment” by 33%. The took the next step and lower the “renewal membership investment” by 50%. By doing this we did not lose any members and we grew by 22 organizations across the State of Kansas. Our membership total at the end of 2020 – 102. But the Kansas Nonprofit Centre serves over 17,000 organization across the State of Kansas.
- Kansas Nonprofit Centre is the Association of Kansas Nonprofits. We are recognized at the federal level as the state association in Kansas.
- Benefit Package. The staff always knew that we needed a Benefit package. We never had the time to research on what is important for organization. COVID shut down time allowed us to build a robust benefit package. Kansa Nonprofit Centre have partners with the following:
- Insurance – unemployment, property, Board of Directors Insurance, and more
- Health Insurance, Vision Insurance, Dental Insurance
- Off Supply – 25% – 50% off many supplies
- Background check – starting at $6.95 – general background checks.
- Web design – starting at $300.
- Grants – platform of grant funders
- Grant Writer
- HR Management
- Accounting service.
- Verizon “One Talk” discounted plans
- We continue to build the package.
- National Council of Nonprofits membership
Because the Kansas Nonprofit Centre is a member of the Council, we were able to provide timely instructions about the C.A.R.E.S Act back in March-April.
- Education Classes:
Around September we were able to provide “free” investment classes that were so important and assistance on how to open the organizations safely. We were also able to provide timely classes with the continuation of the CARES Act and the changes that the federal government made.
This year has been difficult, but we knew that our organization was so important to our members so they could attend classes that were so important. We also provided as much helpful information about the C.A.R.E.S Act had help organizations across Kansas to get the money that they needed to keep operating until they could start up their fundraising events.
We are looking forward to 2021. We believe that this will also be a difficult year but looking forward to the opportunities that we can take advantage and providing very important information and education classes. We are looking forward to meeting in person soon.
