An essential element of a non-profit’s success is a measure of the direct impact on the lives of the target groups. The comprehensive fundraising efforts must balance to allow changes in people’s lives. The Ubuntu Education Fund caters to orphaned and at-risk children by providing them with education, health services, and economic support. Underprivileged families in Port Elizabeth, South Africa are eligible.
Andrew Rolfe is serving as the Chairman of Ubuntu Fund. He is responsible for the charity’s operations and management strategy. Despite the no-strings strategy, he has managed to improve fundraising efforts. Besides, he is achieving proven results in the education segment.
Under Andrew Rolfe’s leadership, the non-profit is employing an innovative approach to funding and management. It is saying no to donations that come with strings. This strategy is enables the organization to focus on the vital mission of supporting vulnerable children. The non-profit can achieve more even with reduced funding. Ubuntu Fund works closely with communities to create personalized plans for each child under their system to empower them to break out of the cruel poverty cycle.
It’s hard to find donors who support a non-profit’s activities without the need to influence processes and outcomes. Some donors only support specific programs or ask to participate in an organization’s strategy and operations. They may also request board positions to enable them to influence an organization’s policy. Andrew Rolfe has extensive leadership experience. He has allowed the development of custom programs, which create stronger relationships with beneficiaries.
This approach places a strong focus on the depth of the impact rather than the spread. Charities should have the freedom to execute their mission and value statements. In this manner, they might reduce the spread of their services. However, they will reap the extended benefits of paying closer attention to fewer beneficiaries.
A non-profit should strive to keep administrative overheads as low as possible to ensure that the bulk of the funding goes to help those in need. Andrew Rolfe encourages continuous monitoring and evaluation. Various reports provide set targets and discrepancies with outputs, which enables quicker case reviews and a change in strategy to one that works for the individual beneficiary.
