Volunteers and Nonprofits Together Get Funds

firefighters-volunteeringNonprofits are encouraged to utilize volunteers during the Winter Holiday Season in order to make the most of available grant funding.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Nov. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — "People want to help others by doing good deeds during this holiday season of giving. Not everyone can donate funds but many can donate their most precious 'gift of time'.  That is the message that Libby Hikind, founder and president of GrantWatch.com, has for nonprofits and community organizations that will serve the needy during the upcoming holidays.

Libby is in touch with numerous grant seekers and funding sources. She notes that organizations that utilize both grant funding and volunteer resources benefit from a synergy that allows them to accomplish more than either grant funding or volunteerism could achieve alone.

Volunteers bring to the nonprofit great energy, valuable suggestions and connections to call upon in order to implement and supplement the organization's initiatives and programs.  In addition, volunteer assistance enables organizations to free up limited resources so that they can re-allocate their grant income towards the purchase of more food and necessities for the indigent than might otherwise have been possible.  Volunteers help non-profits search for and identify grant funding on GrantWatch.com and find skilled, professional grant writers through GrantWriterTeam.com.

GrantWatch.com is the premier website for grant seekers, listing more than 12,000 USA and International federal, state, local and foundation grants and has become an essential tool for non-profits.  Grant proposals are reviewed by GrantWatch.com associates to provide nonprofits with a dependable list of potential funders.  By drastically reducing the time that organizations spend searching for funding, GrantWatch.com enables them to focus their energy and efforts on their long-term goals as well as on more effective management of their day-to-day operations.

Both subscribers and non-subscribers can see grant previews and deadline information on the site.
