Advancement

Caring is impossible without sharing

Dorothy Day said that the role of nonprofits is to "comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable". This page is C4L's way of gently "afflicting the comfortable".  This is part of what we do.  Thus we prefer the term "Advancement" because everybody wins... it is more blessed to give than to receive.

There are several different names for this function in a nonprofit like C4L.  Sometimes it is called "Resource mobilization" or just simple "resourcing".  In other places it may be called "Fundraising" but that is technically different from "Grantseeking".  Whatever you call it, launching "appeals" is part and parcel of getting the finance in place to get the job done.  In fact, getting the finance in place is part of doing the job!

FEEDBACK LOOP

Although this website is refreshed from time to time, it is only a generic description of C4L's social contribution.  It does not try to report on projects or time periods.

For individuals, familes and churches, there are two sources of news.  First there is the C4L Bulletin which goes out to "Friends of C4L" about once a month.  It used to be a kind of activity report but has evolved into more thematic thought-bursts arising from our work.  A selection of these Bulletins are later placed on one of the 3 blogsites, but not all as the content range is wider than the 3 "silos".

Second, there is the CEO's Prayer Letter which is send out about twice a month, although to an inner circle of Prayer Partners.  These tend to give some deeper insights of what is going on "behind the scenes".

For grantmakers and SETAs, approvals and appointments always involve an agreed reporting schedule.  But these reports are of course the property of the Donors.

An Annual Report is prepared for the AGM and is then submitted to the Nonprofit Directorate which requires this and C4L's annual audit to maintain our status as "compliant".
