Well, it’s happened again. Through the help of a great friend, I was recently connected to a terrific website that is making a difference for all philanthropically-minded donors and hundreds of nonprofits in Southeast Michigan. The podcast you will hear shortly solves so many issues people say they have regarding choosing the right nonprofit to donate to or get involved with from a volunteer standpoint. A website called SHARE Detroit is a wonderful endeavor that makes it easy to navigate hundreds of small and medium-sized nonprofits in an effort to find the right one that fits your needs and desire to give back.
I had the pleasure of speaking to Janette Phillips, Executive Director of SHARE Detroit, and got to hear the amazing story of two angel investors who decided that this platform had the potential to help basically all nonprofits in Detroit, but especially those that find it difficult to reach viewers and highlight their efforts to give back to the community.
This is such a blessing for all nonprofits trying to make the world a better place. It makes me proud to be part of a community that has dedicated individuals like Paul Vlasic and Sam Rozenberg who have stepped up big time to support SHARE Detroit with their time, business expertise, and financial assistance.
The site is easy to use and you will be amazed at all the information it provides in helping nonprofits and donors connect in a wonderful, straightforward and productive way. Janette will guide us through the development of the site and the great value it provides to nonprofits that want to connect.
I will save more details for the podcast but know that over 200 nonprofits in Southeast Michigan have already connected this year, while another 50 to 60 more are in their bubble preparing to join. The potential benefit is huge in our community and this SHARE Good model can be utilized in other communities across the country.
Learn more about how to connect with Janette and her team at SHARE Detroit and the five-click process that can help any community that has a desire to share this mission in other locations.
Please listen to my informative podcast with Janette and check out the great sharedetroit.org website.
