Tips for Starting and Growing a Non-profit

Spotlight on Success Show – Episode 2

On my latest episode of the Spotlight on Success Show, I invited non-profit expert, Sheryl Hill, Founder of Clear Cause Foundation, to provide us insight on the best tips for starting and growing a non-profit organization.

With years of experience, and an outstanding team of leaders and resources, Sheryl provides solid steps and  strategies, answering –

  • What are the two most important things to know before starting a non-profit?
  • What is the biggest challenge women face in starting non-profit organizations that is different from men?
  • What strategies are most effective for raising awareness for a non-profit in the early stages?
  • And as a non-profit business owner, what has been her greatest achievement thus far.

If you are considering starting, or have been struggling to get your non-profit off the ground, one of the most valuable chunks of information that came out of this interview was Sheryl’s list of resources. Enjoy the show!

Thank you Sheryl for sharing your valuable insights and taking the time to educate us all on the steps for successfully launching a non-profit.
