I am so excited for the newness this year will bring and I am looking forward to many good things to come.
Looking back at 2021, I have spoken on Zoom and television several times, and we want to end the year with a shout-out to Hey, Sandy PR & Communications for their great efforts on our behalf. You can find these informative videos on the GrantWatch Media page, where you will hear my many tips for winning a grant.
Nonprofits who let us know they won a grant have also received a 17-ounce latte mug from GrantWatch. Their adorable videos and comments can be viewed on the GrantWatch Testimonials page. These testimonial videos from nonprofits have touched my ❤️ heart with the good work they are doing. I look forward to many more in 2022.
GrantWatch will enter the new year with upwards of 7,500 currently available grants. Additionally, GrantWriterTeam has had its 500th grant writing contract signed with many new experienced grant writers pleased to join the team in 2022, while YouHelp has undergone a whole new website design. I have a wonderful staff and we are always looking for additional qualified personnel to join our team.
Our plans for the new year include many more grants, more features, more learning videos, fresh content, and other improved ways to reach our subscribers. We are planning to interview nonprofits who have won grants to learn all that they did to achieve success and share those interviews with you.
I have reworked and redesigned YouHelp since 2016 and I am now confident we have found the recipe for success. We are now a free-to-use website for nonprofits whose 501c3 can be verified with a final determination letter from the IRS. Along with the determination letter, we also ask for proof of the authority to raise funds in a document or by use of a company email address.
YouHelp is the place for USA-based nonprofits who want to stand out. Using the same categories as GrantWatch, nonprofits, and only nonprofits based in the USA can raise money on YouHelp.com. I believe our secret for success is our verification process. This process includes a careful review of the campaigns, an easy-to-follow checklist, and a choice of three credit card processors with low fees.
Campaigns are not squashed and squeezed between those heart-wrenching personal campaigns that may or may not be fraudulent. YouHelp includes links to your website and your social media pages on its website, adding credit to your SEO from its highly-regarded website.
We are putting the finishing touches on an optional learning module that encompasses six weeks and includes 30 days of videos with accompanying text and templates. These videos will teach nonprofits how to market their fundraisers. The Learn Nonprofit Marketing is optional to live campaigns and will greatly increase your staff’s online fundraising knowledge and ability.
I want to thank you for being part of the GrantWatch, GrantWriterTeam, and YouHelp family and wish you all a very healthy and Happy New Year in 2022!
Founder and CEO of GrantWatch, GrantWriterTeam, and YouHelp
