didn't start it because you wanted to fill out forms or to answer telephones.

Wouldn't it be great to concentrate on what you do best - running your programs and services and not have to worry about what you don't like to do - all the office work that supports those wonderful programs and services?

Now you can.

Our Easy Nonprofit Admin Service pools all those back-office administrative tasks together that you typically have to do to run your nonprofit and then we coordinate a team of skilled people to do them all for you!

 

You get to do what makes you happy and you leave the rest to us. And, we do all of this for probably less than what you are paying right now for these various functions.

So instead of piling more and more work on a limited staff or volunteers who aren't really excited to do that one additional thing you so desperately need to get done today, you get to off-load all of those tasks to qualified people who love to do them.

How it Works: The Shared Approach

Our unique organizational design is what makes this concept work: one person shared among a limited number of organizations, who each receive the equivalent of a full time, highly experienced administrative expert, at a fraction of the cost. 

 

The big benefit is that the overall cost to each participating organization is driven down and efficiency is increased on every dollar spent on your administrative needs.

By working collaboratively, nonprofits are able to share everything from clerical support, to training, to technology development, to printing and logistical services. The main goal is to share a nonprofit administrator in order to be more productive in accomplishing your own mission, build better business practices and reduce individual agency costs.

 

And lest you think this is a pie-in-the sky dream, we have spent the last four years implementing the shared approach and refining it in the real-world nonprofit arena. We know it works! And now you can benefit from our experience.

How Do We Do It?:

We start by looking at what you are paying now for all the various administrative services. If you don't need all of them, they won't be included. Then, we quote you a monthly price that is less than you what you are paying now for all the various functions by streamlining them all and by assigning a single administrator to coordinate everything for you.

 

Based on our established relationships with vendors and volume discounts we receive by bringing multiple clients to the table, we save money and we pass those savings directly onto you! It's that simple!
