Hurricane Sandy charities called into light
July 19, 2013
It's been more than six months since Hurricane Sandy ravaged parts of the East Coast. Many people were left out of work and homeless when staggeringly high winds, torrential rain, rising tides and ocean surges battered parts of New York and New Jersey in particular. In the wake of the disaster, many people across the nation were able to raise money for victims and put the funds into rebuilding projects.
However, a lot of areas are still having issues after Sandy, and some individuals are asking why. The Asbury Park Press reported that not a lot of people in New Jersey are aware of the fact that Habitat for Humanity has successfully fundraised and has the necessary capital to help residents with their rebuilding efforts. Plus, the group has so many volunteers that they're turning some away.
The point is that charities of this type should consider advertising more if they have the means of helping numerous individuals but nowhere to direct their services.
Some people are still focused on giving money to the area. For instance, CBS reported that singer Jon Bon Jovi recently gave $1 million to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.
Individuals, programs and organizations that rely on fundraising to fuel sustainable operations might find nonprofit fundraising software advantageous. The solutions can facilitate the process of identifying grant opportunities, generate reports that demonstrate current financial need and showcase previous achievements.
